Gregory Wins Republican Primary for Walton Supervisor

By Lillian Browne

Charles GregoryCharles GregoryWALTON - Walton’s incumbent Supervisor Charles Gregory has cinched the Republican nomination for the supervisor seat by winning the Sept. 12 primary in which he was challenged by former Walton Supervisor Bruce Dolph, who he ousted from office two years ago.

The primary was a landslide win for Gregory. He netted 194 votes to Dolph’s 93. 

Despite the loss, Dolph will be a candidate in November’s General Election where his name will appear on the Independent line.

Gregory did not pursue the Conservative or Independent line, he said, because he wants voters to vote for him based upon his track record of positive accomplishments for Walton, as well as his vision for the town’s future.

Of the primary win, Gregory said he is thankful for the vote of confidence voiced by taxpayers. 

Dolph said he was disappointed by the loss, but is not giving up. He will work to sway voters to re-seat him as Walton’s supervisor in November, he said.

Gregory's endorsement will not be official until a vote of the town and county Republican Committees.

There were a total of 289 votes casted in the Walton Republican Primary. Two of the ballots named write-in candidates.
