CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Democratic Committee made two nominations for the Board of Supervisors and Constitutional Officers for the general election during its caucus meeting on Wednesday, July 13, according to Chair John Sanderson.

The nominations made were for Van Petty for supervisor of the Third District and Patricia Scales for Cumberland's Commonwealth's Attorney, noted Sanderson to The Herald.

“He's going to run again for the seat he currently holds and Patricia Scales is also going to run for the office she currently holds,” he explained.

“We just did the nominations at the meeting and talked in general about how we could help support them in their run for their offices,” he said.

Sanderson has been the Chair of the Democratic Committee for almost two years.

The general election is set for Tuesday, November 8 and up for election this fall in Cumberland are the Board of Supervisors, School Board, and Constitutional Officers.
