Collins to run for supervisor seat

WINCHESTER -- Local attorney Christopher Collins will run for a seat on the Frederick County Board of Supervisors in November.

The county Republican Party on Thursday certified Collins as its candidate to seek the seat representing the Red Bud District, according to Registrar Rick Miller.

Collins will replace GOP candidate Philip Lemieux on the ballot. Lemieux submitted a notice to the county voter registrar's office last Friday indicating his intent to withdraw as a candidate.

Lemieux had sought a second four-year term representing the district. He found out late last month that a job he accepted with an Abingdon firm could create a conflict of interest.

Collins filed the necessary paperwork on Monday, Miller said.

Collins will be challenging independent candidate Richard Howett for the seat. Howett chose not to seek re-election to the seat representing the same district on the School Board in order to run for the Board of Supervisors.

Political parties or other independent candidates have until 5 p.m. today to file the needed documents to be placed on the ballot.

Election Day is Nov. 3.
