Thank you to everyone who voted for me, who gave me encouragement, and helped in the effort to have the voices of our neighbors heard. I am deeply grateful to all of you.
While the final result was not what we hoped for, we made tremendous progress in changing the culture of the Board of Supervisors. Before we started, at the Jan. 11th BOS working meeting, there was general consensus that the five square miles of Centerville was small and insignificant compared to the 300 square miles of Goochland County. There was an assumption that my opponent would run to be elected without a challenger. The Board’s reversals of attitudes and rejection of the terrible Centerville plan, is proof that informed neighbors, when they band together, can be heard.
I have deep concerns about the future of Centerville and I am not “going away.” My campaign was just the opening act of a long effort to save Centerville and the surrounding area from over-development and traffic choked roads.
