The Albemarle Supervisors have made new appointments to the County Planning Commission. Karen Firehock will represent the Samuel Miller District, Mac Lafferty will be the Jack Jouett District member, and Bruce Dotson will be the Rio District representative. Supervisors’ Chairwoman Jane Dittmar (pictured center) says she’s keeping Richard Randolph (pictured left) as the Scottsville District planning commisioner. Randolph was first appointed by Former Supervisor Chris Dumler. Randolph joined Dittmar and county staffer Mark Graham (pictured right) for a December event at Monticello High School. The Supervisors have also chosen the county’s two new representatives on the Metropolitan Planning Organization, which oversees our area’s road projects. Democrats Ann Mallek and Brad Sheffield will replace Republicans Duane Snow and Rodney Thomas. Snow and Thomas were defeated in last November’s elections.
