Steven W. Shockley, 56, has announced that he will run for Sunburst District Supervisor for Campbell County in the November election. Supervisor Bob Good who currently holds the seat, has opted not to run for re-election due to other time commitments.
Shockley is President of Industrial Plating Corporation in Lynchburg. He and his wife, Schre have been married for 30 years and have two grown sons.
He currently represents the Sunburst District on the Campbell County Industrial Development Authority. He was on the advisory board for the Campbell County planning commission and the planning commission itself for one term around 12 years ago. He is not related to Steven Shockley who was the Sunburst District supervisor before Good.
“Bob Good is a neighbor of mine and asked me to serve on the IDA,” he says.
Supervisor Good is known to not being hesitant to speak his mind on subjects he feels strongly about. “Once I am familiar with the subject and know what I’m talking about, I won’t have any problem speaking up if I’m elected as Supervisor,” says Shockley.
