Halifax County Board of Supervisor Chairman Dennis Witt, who represents constituents in ED-4, has some competition for the seat he currently holds on the board.

Ronnie E. Duffey of Lakeside Drive in Halifax qualified Tuesday to run for the ED-4 seat, Halifax Registrar Heather Harding said.

Witt had previously qualified to seek re-election.

Duffey, who previously ran for Halifax mayor, also served on Halifax Town Council from 2012 to 2016.

He is the owner of Centerville Cellular and a T-shirt and vinyl print shop, and he is a teacher at Halifax County High School.

The deadline to file to be a candidate on the Nov. 5 ballot was Tuesday at 7 p.m.

In addition to the race for the ED-4 seat on the county board of supervisors, other contests include the ED-5 supervisor seat featuring Dean Throckmorton of Scottsburg and Jimmy Wade of Halifax vying for the position.

Three school board contests will appear on the Nov. 5 ballot including ED-1 where incumbent Orey Hill is facing a challenge from Patricia “Kathy” Fraley, in ED-4 where incumbent Joseph Gasperini faces competition from Jason “Jay” Camp and in ED-7 where Vince Newton and Keith McDowell are each vying for the seat currently held by incumbent Monty Lowery.

Constitutional officers facing challenges this fall include the sheriff and commissioner of revenue with incumbent sheriff Fred S. Clark of Nathalie being opposed by John Tanner of Halifax and incumbent commissioner of revenue Brenda Powell of Scottsburg facing a challenge from Kenneth P. “Ken” Buckley of South Boston.
