Total of 12 running for Prince George District 1 and 2 supervisor seats – News – The Progress-Index – Petersburg, VA.

This is a fairly comprehensive article from Amir Vera of the Progress-Index, but there are a few things to point out …

Melvin C. Jones has stated to many that he did not foreclose running for reelection this fall as a quid pro quo for the interim appointment to the District 2 vacant seat.  For your information, though Melvin is running as an Independent, he is a member of the Prince George Dems.

Proudly, there are two Democratic candidates running in District 1 against the two Independent incumbents.  B. Renee Taylor Garnett and Floyd M. Brown, Jr. are members of our Democratic Committee and are excellently qualified for the two District 1 seats.

There is another Independent candidate running in District 1 … Engo H. Radant.  Can anyone share information about this candidate?

As you meet or interact with the candidates for the Board of Supervisors in your district ask them point blank if they support single member voting districts, rather than the at-large district system we now have.
