Lucia Phinney Running for BoS

Batesville Democrat Lucia Phinney is running for the Democratic nomination for the Samuel Miller District seat on the Board of Supervisors, Fania Gordon writes for Charlottesville Tomorrow. The architecture school lecturer and Batesville resident is running for Sally Thomas’ old seat “because she has a strong background in the issues facing the County.” Phinney will face off against Madison Cummings, the other Democrat in the race, for the nomination for their party. The winner of that will go on to run against Republican(-ish) John Lowry in the general election.

  • I believe she’ll be a strong advocate for protection of rural areas and farmland while being an equal advocate for programs that benefit local farmers. So far, I haven’t seen a clear plan for protecting the rural areas from Madison Cummings, and that might indicate that a vote for him may be a step backwards.

    I also think that Lucia will bring new ideas to how we develop the growth area, so that it can go beyond being a dumping ground for high density low-quality development, and become a place real people would want to live in and raise a family.
