Special Elections- In the Name of the Commonwealth
"NOW THEREFORE, in the name of the Commonwealth, you are hereby required to cause an election to be held in your said County on Tuesday, January 3, 2006, for a member of the House of Delegates of Virginia to fill the vacancy. The last day for filing as a candidate for such office in said election shall be Friday, December 16, 2005, at 5:00 p.m." --- Governor's 12/12 News Release
The date has been set for the two special elections (which we know we need to have). Tuesday January 3rd voters in Caroline, Essex, Hanover, King and Queen, King William, Middlesex, and Spotsylvania counties will head to the polls to select a successor to "Fireball" Bill Bolling. And down in the fightin' 9th voters in Buchanan (Buck-a-non, right?), Russell, and Tazewell will select a replacement for the Honorable Jackie Stump who has resigned.
Now I want to be Governor someday just so I can make proclamations in the name of the Commonwealth.
When did Jackie Stump resign?
