Newly-elected Supervisor Ann Mallek has begun her four-year term on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors today.

“It is an honor to represent the citizens of the White Hall District, and I count on all of your help as we move forward with this together,” Mallek said in her first speech from the dais.

Ken Boyd (Rivanna), just re-elected to his second term on the Board, has been appointed to serve for another year as Chairman of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors. David Slutzky will assume his first leadership position on the Board as Vice Chairman. Lindsay Dorrier (Scottsville) was also re-elected and began his new term representing the Scottsville District.

“We have got our work ahead of us,” Boyd said, pointing to a packed first agenda of the year. In their first four hours, the Board approved a use agreement for the Piedmont Family YMCA in McIntire Park, lifted water usage restrictions, and heard an appeal of an Architectural Review Board decision.

Ella Jordan was selected as the Board Clerk and Meagan Hoy will remain as Senior Deputy Clerk. Regular meeting dates will remain on the first and second Wednesday of the month, though the Supervisors may consider adding a third meeting on a month-by-month basis, according to County Executive Bob Tucker.

Due to schedule constraints, the Board will make appointments to boards and commissions, including the Albemarle County Planning Commission , later on this evening after a second closed session.
