By. John Haksch, Louisa County Field Officer
The terms of three Supervisors: Willie Gentry, Cuckoo District, Dan Byers, Jackson District, and P. T. Spencer, Louisa District are expiring this December. It is interesting to note that in only two of the districts – Jackson, in the person of James Smith, and Louisa with Troy Wade – have challengers to the incumbents materialized.
This somewhat unusual show of communal solidarity is matched in 6 other uncontested races for county offices. In fact, only the offices of Treasurer (6 candidates) and Sheriff (3 candidates) have attracted any interest.
The venue – the Betty J. Queen Intergenerational Center – has been secured and is relatively undamaged. The Forum is limited to candidates for the contested seats for the Board of Supervisors, to allow time for more in-depth answers to the series of questions, relevant to Louisa voters, which they will be asked in turn. The event will be held on September 22nd at 7:00 p.m.
