The Daily Progress is reporting that Scottsville area resident

Kevin Fletcher

intends to launch a campaign for the Board of Supervisors challenging

Democratic incumbent Lindsay Dorrier

.  Earlier this year Mr. Dorrier announced he would seek another four-year term.

Mr. Fletcher ran an unsuccessful write-in campaign for Supervisor

in 2003

and this year, he told Charlottesville Tomorrow, he is planning to challenge Mr. Dorrier for the Democratic nomination.

Charlottesville Tomorrow

first reported Mr. Fletcher’s interest in a second campaign for the Scottsville seat on

January 16, 2007

. On that evening (photo at right), he spoke before the Albemarle County Planning Commission in opposition to the

Biscuit Run

development.  He shared his belief that, “We don’t need more housing and we don’t need more commercial space….We need to conserve as much of our growth area as possible because once this is gone the cry will come out for more growth area.”

Denny King

is the third candidate running for Supervisor in the Scottsville District.  Mr. King has not yet decided whether he will seek the nomination of a political party or run as an independent.
