The Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS® (CAAR) formally endorsed John Lowry for the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors to represent the Samuel Miller District. The endorsement comes after candidate interviews and deliberations by both the Candidate Funding Project Team and the CAAR Board of Directors. Albemarle County’s Samuel Miller District challenger, John Lowry was singled out for his efforts to move forward balanced approach to government and vision for economic development. As a retired finance professional, his fiscal acumen will assist as Albemarle seeks innovative ways to fund government services. Lowry's significant service to the community on the Economic Development Authority, Board of Equalization and Airports Authority were also factors in CAAR's endorsement.
"I greatly appreciate CAAR’s endorsement. Their relationships with their clients provide them the opportunity to learn firsthand the challenges many Albemarle County homeowners face. They know the difficulties home builders encounter in developing neighborhoods where young or senior homeowners want to live but cannot afford to", said Lowry. Having a balanced approach to our land use policies, finances, and economic development will help to solve these challenges, Lowry continued.
