Lindsay Dorrier, Jr. says he wants to continue improving Albemarle county.
That is why the the Scottsville district representative is running for a fourth term on the Board of Supervisors.
For the past seven years, Dorrier has worked to cut the real estate tax rate and create more affordable housing.
He says, so far fifteen percent of the county's housing is affordable. He wants to double that number.
"I'd like to have incentives for developers to build more affordable housing," explained Dorrier. "Otherwise we are going to be losing our teachers, our police officers, social workers, and nurses. They are going to be going to other counties."
Dorrier is being challenged by Denny King. The election is in November.
