Democrat Kenny Boddye has defeated incumbent Republican Supervisor Ruth Anderson in a close race to become the next Prince William County supervisor in the Occoquan District.
With 100 percent of the county's precincts reporting, Boddye had garnered 50.91 percent of the vote as of 10 p.m.
Boddye, an activist and business development professional for an insurance firm, ran on issues like increasing affordable housing, boosting the county's mental health services, reducing overcrowding in the county’s public schools and preserving the rural crescent.
His opponent, Anderson, was elected in 2015.
Boddye is the second African-American man elected to the Prince William County Board of Supervisors and one of four African Americans who will join the board in January 2020.
Neabsco District Supervisor Victor Angry became the first African-American board member when he won a special election to fill the late Supervisor John Jenkin's term in April. Angry ran unopposed on Tuesday.
