I am excited to continue building on the strong foundation we’ve laid together so far,” said Judge Pendery.  “I grew up in Campbell County, raised my family here and ran a successful family business. Campbell County will always be my home, and I’ll always fight to ensure Campbell County is a great place for families, with a strong economy and a high quality
of life for generations to come.”
