WINCHESTER -- Several members of the Frederick County Board of Supervisors intend to seek re-election to their seats in November.
Chairman Richard C. Shickle Sr., Opequon District Supervisor Bill M. Ewing and Back Creek District Supervisor Gary A. Lofton held a press conference Friday to announce that they plan to seek Republican Party nominations and run for re-election. Commonwealth's Attorney Glenn Williamson also attended the press conference, and announced his intention to seek the party's nomination to run for re-election to his constitutional office.
Shickle is serving his third four-year term as the at-large chairman since his election to the position in 1999. He had served one term as the Gainesboro District supervisor. Shickle works for Shenandoah University as its vice president of administration and finance.
Ewing is seeking re-election to a third term as supervisor.
Lofton is currently serving his first term representing the Back Creek District.
The Frederick County GOP is scheduled to choose its candidates at a mass meeting later this month.
Election Day is Nov. 8.
