PETERSBURG —Four candidates are vying for the 63rd District House of Delegates seat previously held by newly elected Sen. Rosalyn Dance, D-Petersburg.
Lashrecse Aird, a member of Petersburg’s Planning Commission; Larry Brown Sr., minister of Gravel Run Church in Dinwiddie, School Board member Atiba Muse and Gerry Rawlinson, who owns businesses in Petersburg and Richmond, filed by yesterday’s deadline for the June primary.
A protégé of state Sen. Rosalyn R. Dance has jumped into the race for the 63rd House of Delegates District seat.
Lashrecse Aird, 28, announced that she would compete with three other announced candidates for the Petersburg area seat that Sen. Dance previously held. The current delegate, Joseph E. Preston, is giving up the seat to challenge Sen. Dance in the June 9 Democratic primary.
Ms. Aird is a former legislative aide to Sen. Dance and currently is executive assistant to the president of Richard Bland College.
