PEARISBURG, Virginia – On Monday, April 5th, The Pulaski County Board of Supervisors including Joe Guthrie (Chair and Cloyd District Supervisor), Laura Walters (Ingles District), and Dirk Compton (Draper District) are proud to endorse Jason Ballard for the 12th Delegate District to replace Chris Hurst in November. They have provided the following statements for release:

“We as Pulaski County elected Republicans know that Jason Ballard will represent Southwest Virginia’s values and needs in Richmond. Something Chris Hurst has failed to do.”

“We definitely need a change in that Delegate District, and Jason Ballard is the person who will go to Richmond and stand up for Southwest Virginia. We need to replace Chris Hurst,” said Dirk Compton.

“I’m very impressed with Jason Ballard and his qualifications,” said Laura Walters. “He is very capable of giving us the voice we need in the House of Delegates and will get things done for Southwest Virginia. Unlike Chris Hurst, Jason is from the 12th District. He was born and raised in Giles County.”

“Jason Ballard is a man of great ability and integrity who I will look forward to working with as Delegate for the 12th District,” said Joe Guthrie. “The 12 District includes two of the three precincts I represent on the Board of Supervisors. So, if you vote at either Riverlawn Elementary School or at Belspring Methodist Church, you’re part of the 12th Delegate District. Please vote this November for Jason Ballard for Delegate.”
