Democratic member of the Board of Supervisors Lindsay Dorrier has a challenger in this year’s election in the form of Republican Denny King. (The Progress reported this fully a week ago, but I totally forgot to write about it.) King, who works in the film production business, ran for the Scottsville seat on the school board in 2003. Some may recall his 2004 efforts to start an all-Charlottesville all the time broadcast TV station.
Lindsay Dorrier is nominally a Democrat, but certainly the most conservative elected Democrat to be found in the area; he often votes with his Republican colleagues. His current run on the BoS began in 2000, but he also served from 1976-1980. He was challenged at the end of his 2000 term by a write-in candidate, but won handily.
