FRONT ROYAL-- Attorney Daryl Funk announced Friday he is running for the town council before a group of about 30 supporters gathered at the old entrance to the Warren County Courthouse.
Funk, who will turn 30 in a few days, said his first priority as a council member "will be to continue working to create an economic environment attractive to business and thereby create more good paying jobs closer to home."
Funk, who has been practicing law for three years, works at the Pond, Athey,
Athey & Pond law firm.
Funk, who was born and raised in Front Royal, stressed his roots and those of his family in the town.
"As a parent, I want my child, Marie, as well as all of the children and grandchildren of this community to enjoy the same bright future that this community provided to me as a child so many years ago," he said.
