Danville,VA-- Former Henry County School Board Member Mary Martin announced she's running as an independent for the 14th District House of Delegates seat.
Martin made the announcement today at the Danville Courthouse. She addressed her major concerns which include job creation, and education.
Martin said one of her major platforms is to change laws passed in 2007, that gives electric companies power to increase utility rates in Henry County
"I have been to the general assembly, I have lobbied, I have took copies of light bills down," said Martin. "That's a real biggie with me right there, that we need to undo that damage."
Incumbent Danny Marshall said the House has already passed a bill this year that will allow for some helpful changes to those laws.
