Farris advances in Morgan County Commission race

May 12, 2010

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Todd Farris won the Democratic nomination in Tuesday's primary election as the Morgan County Commission candidate in Magisterial District 3.

The unofficial, but complete, results show that Farris received 321 votes, besting Tony Lynch, who received 235 votes, and Barbara Tutor, who garnered 196 votes.

Farris, 46, of 891 Shade Lane in Berkeley Springs, will face Republican candidate Bradley J. Close in November's general election.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet," Farris said right after results were announced.

Close, 29, of Berkeley Springs, ran unopposed in the Republican primary. The self-employed CPA received 985 votes, according to unofficial, but complete, results.

Farris works as a machine operator in a Winchester, Va., plant. He said he wants to find ways to get more manufacturing jobs in Morgan County so people will not have to work outside the county.


"I asked the people what they wanted, and I'll be knocking on doors again and I'll be asking more people what they want done with their county," he said. "I carry a book with me and I write their ideas down."
