Stimpson steps down from VRE board

Stafford County Supervisor Susan Stimpson told the board at Tuesday’s meeting that she was giving up her spot on the Virginia Railway Express Operations Board, according to my colleague Katie Thisdell.

She will serve instead as an alternate, with Bob Thomas, the BOS vice chairman, replacing Stimpson as Stafford’s primary VRE representative alongside Supervisor Paul Milde.

Stimpson, who served as the VRE board’s secretary, did not immediately give a reason for stepping down. She said in an email Wednesday that Thomas had “expressed an interest in taking a more active role.”

Stimpson has a lot on her plate, as she is in a crowded field of candidates running for lieutenant governor (see her link here).
