INDEPENDENCE — Dr. Robert Benish has joined this year’s political race to fill the at-large supervisor seat on the Grayson County School Board.
Benish is one of three independent candidates vying for the seat this year. John K. Brewer and Tim L. “T.T.” Carico also will be listed on the ballot this November.
The winner will fill the seat vacated by Gary Burris, who did not seek another term.
Benish, trained in gastroenterology, has served Grayson County, Galax and surrounding communities for 28 years.
