At least two candidates have taken out paperwork for the seat of outgoing Courthouse Supervisor Jerry W. Boothe and more may emerge.
Former Floyd Town Manager Mike Maslaney sought signatures for his petition on the streets of Floyd during the Friday Night Jamboree last week. Protocol Automotive owner Joey Kaylor took out paperwork as well. Neither has formally announced.
Maslaney is also an investor in town redevelopment projects like The Village Green (where Blue Ridge Muse is located) and directed the management group for the downtown redevelopment program.
Kaylor recently relocated and expanded Protocol to a new location on U.S. 221 North.
