Morrow wins 5th term

By Bob Buckel | Published Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Jan Morrow handily won a fifth term in office in Tuesday’s Republic primary.

Morrow garnered 69 percent of the vote enroute to an 882-393 victory over Joshua Reynolds, an investigator with the Wise County Sheriff’s office.

“I would like to say that I appreciate the people of Wise County – the people of Precinct 1 especially,” she said. “Freedom is about people’s choices, and the people’s choices have been stated tonight.”

Morrow’s margin in the early voting was just over 70 percent at 488-204.

Reynolds could not be reached for comment.

Without an opponent on the Democratic ballot, Morrow is assured of re-election this November. She said she enjoys her job and is excited about civil law reform, electronic filing and the opportunity to continue serving the people of Wise County.
