Roanoke County Supervisor Ed Elswick is running for re-election, and will formally announce his candidacy for the Windsor Hills District seat Thursday.
"I want to make sure what we do is what the county's citizens want and not what anyone else wants, and that we give them good value for their tax dollars," Elswick said.
Elswick has been on the board since 2010.
He said one of the first things he'll push for if he is re-elected is a survey of the county's residents, so that supervisors will have a statistically valid report on what residents' priorities are.
Elswick retired from General Electric in 1997 after holding various management positions in finance, quality, and governmental accounting and compliance.
He will formally announce his bid for re-election at 6 p.m. at the South County Library.
Elswick is running as an independent , while two Republicans are seeking the party's nomination to be its candidate in the race.
One, Joe McNamara, was the incumbent Elswick narrowly defeated in 2009 in a Republican primary. Elswick dropped his Republican affiliation in late 2010. The other GOP contender is RoxAnne Christley, president of the Roanoke Valley Republican Women's Club.
