In Virginia, county school boards are composed of one member from each district in that county, and sometimes include an at-large member. Members are elected to four-year terms and serve as the leaders of the school district by setting policies and hiring superintendents, among other duties. The Louisa County School Board has seven members, one from each district.
W.A. “Billy” Seay Jr. is running unopposed for the Louisa District seat on the Louisa County School Board. Seay is the incumbent and has held the seat since 2007.
Though Seay is the only candidate certified by the Virginia Department of Elections, voters can write in other candidates.
Charlottesville Tomorrow designed this questionnaire based on over 200 responses we received to a voter survey. Seay did not return answers.
