Vote on Mary Lee Carter appointment tomorrow
Gary Skinner is asking supervisors tomorrow to approve an appointment of Mary Lee Carter to the Planning Commission.
Including online with the agenda is her resume, which you can view here.
Gary sent me an e-mail last week with his statement:
"After careful consideration, I am nominating former Supervisor Mary Lee Carter to serve on the Spotsylvania County Planning Commission. She will replace Kevin Leahy, who I am nominating to serve on the county’s Economic Development Authority (EDA).
Mrs. Carter has years of experience, and was reappointed by Governor Kaine to serve on the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) in 2006. With the many transportation related challenges facing Spotsylvania. I believe it is important, and very much to the county’s advantage, to have a CTB member serving on our Planning Commission. I look forward to working with Mrs. Carter as she helps us find solutions to many planning-related challenges our county faces."
I interviewed Kevin Leahy on camera last week, but I cannot get the darn footage to work on my computer. That resulted in days of tech work and it still doesn’t work. Microsoft is evil. Hopefully, everything will be working very soon. But, Leahy basically said that he enjoyed his four years on the Planning Commission. He said he plans to remain active, and attend meetings. He is very interested in the commercial design standards and the updates to the comprehensive land use plan. Gary Skinner has asked Leahy to serve on the Economic Development Authority.
