Kenny Boddye secured the Democratic nomination in the Prince William Board of County Supervisors’ Occoquan District on Tuesday night, defeating Aaron Cedric Edmond.

Boddye, a business development manager in the community association insurance industry, took 1,505 votes to Edmond’s 851.

He attributed his win to a successful effort at knocking on doors around the district.

“It’s all ground game, to be honest,” he said.

Boddye said he focused on four key issues: education, jobs, county services and transportation.

On the last, he said he wants to improve traffic on Old Bridge Road.

That could be done partially with work on fixes such as turn lanes, but really the county needs to invest more in transit to take cars off the road, he said.

Boddye will face incumbent Supervisor Ruth Anderson, a Republican, in November.
