In Virginia, Boards of Supervisors govern counties and are elected to four-year terms. Appomattox County’s Board of Supervisors has five members, one for each district.
Incumbent Trevor Hipps is seeking his second term on the Wreck Island District seat, after winning his previous election against then-incumbent Supervisor Bryan Moody.
Hipps is the only candidate certified by the Virginia Department of Elections, though voters can write in other candidates’ names if they choose.
Charlottesville Tomorrow sent Hipps a questionnaire based on more than 200 responses we received to a voter survey. He did not return the questionnaire.
