CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Candidates for the vacant Midlothian District seat on the Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors will go head-to-head at a lunchtime forum.
The Midlothian Business Alliance is hosting a candidate forum on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 11:45 a.m. at the Salisbury Country Club at 13620 W Salisbury Road. Registration is required.
The two candidates for the seat are Mark S. Miller, a Democrat, and Jennifer L. McNinch, a Republican.
McNinch’s platform on her website states: “She will oppose the implementation of Critical Race Theory and other radical curriculum in our schools.”
Miller is an educator whose campaign website slogan is “A Balanced Approach.”
According to one of the candidate forum organizers, this is the only forum where the two candidates will appear together.
The Midlothian District representative seat was left open by Leslie Haley who became the Deputy Attorney General for Government Operations and Transactions under Attorney General Jason Miyares in June.
Tara Carroll has been serving as the interim Midlothian board member. She is not on the ballot.
Chesterfield residents can preview the candidates and other matters on their Nov. 8 ballot by clicking on the links on the Chesterfield County Electoral Board’s Preview Sample Ballot website.
Correction: Leslie Haley’s role after leaving her seat on the Board of Supervisors was incorrectly reported in a previous version of this article. It has been corrected.
