Chris head will announce his candidacy for the Republican nomination to fill Delegate Bill Cleaveland’s seat in the 17th district. He will formally announce Wednesday, May 18 at 4:00 p.m. at the Home Instead location on Peters Creek Road.

Head, 48 came in second in a five-way primary in 2009 with Cleaveland winning the nomination. Cleaveland went on to win handily over Democratic challenger Roanoke City Council member Gwen Mason garnering 62% of the vote.

 He and his wife, Betsy of 20 years are co-owners of  Home Instead.

In a call to attorney Josh Johnson he said he does not plan to run for the seat and is unsure if he resides in the district now. Johnson came in third in the 2009 primary. Attorney Melvin Williams serves on the Electoral Board. Mike Wray has not responded but indicated in past comments that he would not run for any office again.
