BREAKING NEWS: Gravely wins city commonwealth's attorney post
Long-time prosecutor Ziglar defeated by 134 votes
Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Martinsville voters on Tuesday elected a new commonwealth’s attorney for the city — a private practice lawyer who used to be an assistant to the four-term incumbent who lost the race.
Unofficial election results show Clay Gravely defeated incumbent Joan Ziglar by 134 votes. Gravely received 1,760 votes while Ziglar received 1,626.
Those tallies will not be declared official until after the Martinsville Electoral Board conducts a canvass of all of Tuesday’s city election results today.
