Clarke won’t seek vice chairmanship in 2013

Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge) will not seek a second term as the board’s second-in-command.

Clarke, a first-term supervisor from Purcellville, made the announcement during Tuesday’s board meeting. She thanked her colleagues for unanimously voting her to the vice chairmanship in 2012 and urged them to start considering who they would like to hold the position in 2013.

“While I appreciate the opportunity to serve as vice chairman of the board, I decided it would be a good experience for others on the board to have an opportunity to serve in that role,” Clarke told the Times-Mirror Thursday. “I have seen where it is not necessarily helpful for the same person to sit in a leadership capacity for long periods of time.”

Clarke also said she would like to see leadership roles rotated more often on some of the county’s volunteer committee, commissions and boards.

“I don’t need a vice chair title to serve my district. I ran for office to continue to serve my community and certainly will still continue to do so as a supervisor,” Clarke added.

While supervisors are elected every four years, the position of vice chairman, as well as chairs of the various board committees, are voted on by supervisors in January each year.

Hopefully she will be elected next chairwoman. Chairwoman there Trevor!
