January 14th will be election day for voters in the southside district that just sent Roscoe Reynolds to the state Senate.
Reynolds ended accusations of foot-dragging by both parties today -- faxing a letter to the Governor resigning his House of Delegates seat.
That allowed Governor Allen to set the 14th as the date for the special election to fill the position.
That means the district will go UN-represented from the January 8th opening gavel of the General Assembly until a new delegate can be sworn in.
