Onzlee Ware's Seat to be Decided by Firehouse Primary

Posted: Updated:

The debate over how to nominate candidates for the upcoming special election for Delegate Onzlee Ware's seat was up for discussion Thursday.

Roanoke city Democrats decided on a firehouse primary, which will take place at the Roanoke Civic Center on Dec. 7.

The current field of Democratic nominees includes vice-mayor Court Rosen, Sam Rasoul, councilman Dave Trinkle, Trish White-Boyd, and Keith Wheaton.

Octavia Johnson, the outgoing Roanoke sheriff, is the only Republican to announce her candidacy for the 11th district seat.
