-A A +A

Joshua Ball, 25 of Bedford announced his candidacy for the Virginia House of Delegates last week, seeking the seat in the 19th district being vacated by long-time independent Delegate Lacey Putney.

Ball, a pastor in the Bedford area, announced his candidacy at the Bedford County Administration Building flanked by family and friends. He has secured the nomination of the Constitution Party of Virginia.

Ball believes being an outsider may help his chances of being elected. “We need true statesmen, not career politicians,” stated Ball. “I am not running for the Virginia House of Delegates to help my career.”

He also spoke of his conservative ideals. Frederic Villarial who is the Virginia representative of the National Veterans Coalition of the Constitution Party, was also in attendance, and spoke in support of Ball’s candidacy.

Ball will appear on the November 5 ballot after he secures 125 signatures from registered voters in the 19th. For further information contact Aaron Lyles.
