Danny Marshall Gets an Opponent

From the Danville Register & Bee this evening:

Former Danville Mayor F. Seward Anderson has announced plans to challenge Delegate Danny Marshall, R-Danville, this year for his House seat in the General Assembly.

Anderson, a Democrat, said he mailed his papers Monday to the state Board of Elections to declare his candidacy. He also has filed papers with the city registrar.

“My focus will be job growth, education, transportation and working as hard as possible to obtain more funding from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund,” Anderson said Tuesday.

Anderson, a financial advisor with Wachovia Securities, served on Danville City Council from 1982 to 1996, including 10 years as mayor.

Marshall having an opponent should definitely be interesting. To be honest, I don't know enough about Anderson to have an opinion just yet, but I definitely think Marshall is beatable. What do you think of the former mayor?

I spoke with Danville Dem. Party chair Sheila Baynes about this. You can read her comments over at my blog.
