Farmville resident Jamaal Johnston has thrown his hat into the ring seeking to represent the 60th district in the House of Delegates. Johnston, who has never sought public office until now is running against incumbent James Edmunds.
Del. James Edmunds II on Friday announced his plans to seek re-election to a fifth two-year term in the Virginia House of Delegates.
First elected in 2008, Delegate Edmunds represents the 60th District in the Virginia House of Delegate and covers all of Charlotte, Halifax and Prince Edward Counties, and a portion of Campbell.
