Philip Melita and Duane Snow are both seeking the Republican nomination for the Samuel Miller seat on the Board of Supervisors, Brian Wheeler reports for Charlottesville Tomorrow. Melita is adjunct faculty teaching human resources at the university, and before that worked at GE Fanuc before his 1988 retirement. Snow, also retired, is the owner of the 97-year-old family-run Snow’s Garden Center, and used to serve on the Architectural Review Board. Democrat Madison Cummings and independent John Lowry are already in the race, so this will present a third choice for voters in the general election. The seat is open, a result of the retirement of incumbent independent Sally Thomas.
