In Virginia, Boards of Supervisors govern counties and are elected for four-year terms. Appomattox County’s Board of Supervisors has five members, one for each district.
Incumbent William Harvey Hogan is seeking his third term in the Appomattox River District seat, after winning two previous elections unopposed. He is facing challengers for the first time this year: James Boyce and Kenneth William “Dutch Henry” Wolfskill Jr.
Charlottesville Tomorrow sent each candidate a questionnaire based on more than 200 responses we received to a voter survey. None of the three candidates returned the questionnaire.
