Alumnus collects record number of votes in Lynchburg City Council race

By Liberty University News Service –

Two-time Liberty University graduate Chris Faraldi (’17, ’19) garnered the most votes ever recorded — 1,567 — for a Ward IV Lynchburg City Council seat on May 19. He will replace retiring member Turner Perrow, who, along with conservative Congressman Ben Cline (R-6th), endorsed Faraldi earlier this year.

Faraldi, 25, will begin his four-year term in July.

“It was an experience I will never forget,” Faraldi said of his rainy-day victory over opponent Larry Jones. “The campaign was humbling, exhilarating, and taxing, but all worthwhile after the results.”

Ward IV snakes through Lynchburg’s center, occupying popular paths like Old Forest Road, Perrymont Avenue, and Thomas Road. The region spans roughly 13 square miles.
