SCOTTSVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Donna Price kicked off her campaign for the Scottsville District seat of the Albemarle County Supervisors on Saturday at the Scottsville Farmers’ Market. Price said she plans to talk to as many voters as possible throughout the campaign. Although she feels Albemarle County is well governed, more can be done.

"I do feel those of us that live in the more rural areas, our voices are not head quite as much as those who live up closer to Charlottesville or in the city for example so what I want to do is I want to bring good governance to the entire county,” said Donna Price, Scottsville District candidate.

Price is running as a Democrat. She said she plans to use her 40+ years of public service to build a consensus.
