King moved to Albemarle County in 1991 after a career in film and television, and says he is seeking office out of a strong desire to serve the public. In 2003, he ran for the Scottsville seat on School Board and lost to two-term incumbent Steve Kolezar by a margin of 154 votes.
King says large development projects such as Biscuit Run in his district prompt him to ask questions about the preparedness of the County’s infrastructure. “Obviously when you build 3,000 additional homes, that creates a lot of human traffic,” he said. He also says he’s been asked by many people about the health of the community’s water supply.
