In Virginia, Boards of Supervisors govern counties and members are elected to four-year terms. Greene County’s Board of Supervisors has five members, four for each district and one at-large member.
Francis McGuigan and Todd Sansom are facing off for the at-large seat. A third candidate, Steven Kortepeter, dropped out of the race. Whoever wins the race will replace Green County Board of Supervisors Chair Dale Herring.
Charlottesville Tomorrow sent both candidates a questionnaire based on more than 200 responses we received to a voter survey. Neither McGuigan nor Sansom returned answers.
