I was raised in Williamsburg, VA. Growing up immersed in history taught me a deep appreciation for community. As a teenager and costumed guide in colonial Williamsburg, I believed that all citizens, at some point in their lives, had a responsibility to do government service. And as a young adult, I understood the importance of putting my beliefs in civic responsibility into action. For over 30 years, I served Albemarle County on various boards, commissions, and organizations. My business and community experience have prepared me to take the next step in my commitment to our community - to serve you on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.
My experience as a successful businessman will allow me to help reduce the turnover in county staff. My 30 years in financial management positions prepares me well to work with other Board members and county staff to reverse the four year trend of raising our county tax rate. As Chairman of the Economic Development Authority of Albemarle County, I know how to attract the businesses that we want in our county. With prospects for economic development, we can regain support from the Commonwealth for much needed road improvement projects, providing for the safety of our children and those who travel our roadways.
As a husband, father, grandfather and county resident for over 40 years, I am committed to strengthening our community – our neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and natural resources. I want to use my business and community experience to bring balance for ALL citizens of the Samuel Miller District. To do this, I need your support and your vote on November 7th.
