PE Supervisor Dies Tuesday

PROSPECT — Prince Edward County Board of Supervisors member Howard M. “Pete” Campbell died early Tuesday morning of natural causes.

The Prospect District Supervisor was reelected last November for a term of office running through December 31, 2017.

Last fall, Mr. Campbell looked toward his reelection bid, saying, “My vision for Prince Edward County and the Prospect District is to have a positive, vibrant, family-oriented, productive county that will appeal to businesses for true economic development.”

The Board of Supervisors’ regular July meeting will proceed as scheduled Tuesday night (July 8). If no decisions are made then, supervisors may call a special meeting, perhaps for next week, to discuss the vacancy and establish plans to fill it, as required by the Code of Virginia.
