Gary Mattox, the Altavista District incumbent for his fifth term on the Campbell County School Board at the upcoming November election, has filed his paperwork to run this week says Registrar Kelly Martin. No one has signed up to run against him for the seat.
Mattox is a vocal advocate of the schools and students and does not mind asking the tough questions.
He has learned much on his years on the board, but remains determined to do everything he can for the students. Taking a hard look at county schools and what needs to be done to repair or replace them will be a priority going forward.
At the upcoming election, Chairman R. Leon Brandt, Jr. is running for re-election against Campbell County Planning Commission chairman Dean Cumbo. Barry Jones of the Concord District and Mark Epperson of the Spring Hill District are both running unopposed.
