Albemarle Supervisors Disagree Over Lack of Chair Rotation
Jan 9, 2013 01:16 PM EST
Albemarle County supervisors are back in session and a disagreement about the chairman seat has one supervisor angry.
Supervisor Ken Boyd is disappointed because a new chair was not elected Wednesday. The policy has traditionally been to rotate the leadership every two years, but the current chair has served for four.
Boyd said he's disappointed that some members of the board are bartering other committee positions over who will be chair. Now he wants to take action.
"Well, we've had a longstanding policy that what we do is rotate the chair every two years. And now we've had the same chair for four years. I propose that we put a policy in for the term limit for our chair, so we can do that and we will talk about that during the second half of our meeting," said Boyd.
Much of the debate concerns balanced representation on the Metropolitan Planning Organization policy board, and an overall concern that multiple seats will belong to one side of the aisle.
Supervisor Duane Snow was re-elected vice chair. Because there was not a 4 to 2 majority vote, Ann Mallek will remain chair by default.
