The next two years of the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors will look just like they do now. Incumbents Tony O’Brien, Mike Sheridan and Don Weaver all won re-election on November 7.
The Rivanna District was the only contested race of the three with O’Brien winning almost 60 percent of the vote. He defeated challenger Darrell Byers.
“I think the election was a reflection of educated voters who understand that the county’s continued need to balance the tax base through economic development and recognize that we need to provide competitive cores services to thrive,” said O’Brien in an emailed statement.
“The voter also recognized that both the county administration and the [Board of Supervisors] are focused and committed to resolving these challenges while always striving for transparent and accountable fiscal stewardship.”
Sheridan (Columbia District) and Weaver (Cunningham District) each carried over 95 percent of the vote in their respective districts. For Sheridan and O’Brien, this will be their second term. Weaver has served 28 years. This upcoming term he will embark on a third decade in office.
The board is set to have continuity for the next two years. While terms are four years long, Patricia Eager (Palmyra District) and Mozell Booker (Fork Union District) have two years remaining on each of their terms.
