Victor Angry won a four-way race for the Democratic nomination in the special election for Neabsco District supervisor following a firehouse caucus Sunday.
Angry received 266 of the 375 votes, according to the Prince William County Democratic Committee.
Supervisor John Jenkins, the longest-serving supervisor in the county, died Feb. 6. The special election to fill the remainder of his term will be April 9.
Patrick Jones received 44 votes, Aracely Panameno received 39 votes and Don Shaw received 25 votes. There was a write-in vote for Ernestine Jenkins.
Angry is a retired command sergeant major of the U.S. Army National Guard, a Dale City volunteer firefighter, motivational speaker and leadership instructor.
Angry and his wife have raised their children in Dale City.
The county’s Republican Party held a caucus Feb. 19 and are expected to announce their candidate now that the Democrats have selected Angry.
“We feel like it’s better for us to wait and see,” Republican Chairman Bill Card said on Friday.
All candidates have until 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, to file with the county’s Office of Elections.
