Supervisors candidate in ED-1 withdraws from race / March 18, 2019
The lineup of candidates for local office in November continues to change as citizens join the field for Halifax County Board of Supervisors and School Board — or pull away after signaling their intent to run.

On Friday, a declared candidate for Board of Supervisors in Election District 1, Darcy McGeorge, submitted a candidate withdrawal form taking himself out of the race. McGeorge’s withdrawal leaves one certified candidate in ED-1, Calvin “Ricky” Short. Incumbent supervisor J.T. Davis has not stated whether he will run for re-election.

Declared candidates for Board of Supervisors — they are not yet officially certified — are incumbents Dennis Witt in ED-4 and Garland Ricketts in ED-7, and newcomer Robert Smart in ED-5, currently represented by Joey Rogers. Jimmy Wade has filed for re-election as board tiebreaker.

For School Board, Kathy Fraley has qualified for the ballot in ED-1, while the declared candidates include current trustees Orey Hill in ED-1 and Freddie Edmunds in ED-5. Vince Newton has said he intends to run in ED-7, which is now represented by Monty Lowery.

Candidates for constitutional office have been certified by the registrar’s office: Fred Clark and John Tanner for Sheriff, Tracy Q. Martin for Commonwealth’s Attorney; Brenda Powell for Commissioner of Revenue and Ruth Anne Oakes for Treasurer.

Candidates have until June 11 to file for any of the local races on the November general election ballot.
