Sisson is new board chairman; LoBuglio, vice-chair
Dale Sisson Jr. was elected chairman of the King George Board of Supervisors tonight and John LoBuglio, vice-chairman.
The selections were unanimous and part of the reorganization the board does each January. The positions typically are rotated among members of the board in order of tenure.
The only thing unusual this year was that there had been a request by the public to do things differently. On Dec. 18, resident Sylvia Hudson presented a petition, signed by 64 people, asking that Ruby Brabo be made vice-chairman. Brabo joined the board a year ago.
None of the supervisors directly addressed the peoples’ petition tonight. But in making his nomination for LoBuglio, Supervisor Cedell Brooks Jr. said he did so because LoBuglio, who joined the board in January 2010, is the next in line. And, LoBuglio told him he was interested in the post.
Brooks said he had some concerns about the health of LoBuglio, who suffers from extreme back problems, but was assured that LoBuglio’s situation was under control.
Look for more information tomorrow about the board’s organization and the friction that still exists between board members.
