Supervisor Ken Boyd announced Thursday that he will seek another term on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.

Boyd made the announcement Thursday morning at the Albemarle County Office Building. The Republican was first elected to the Board in 2003 after serving a four-year term on the Albemarle County School Board. He was re-elected to serve a second term as supervisor in 2007.

If re-elected in November, it will be Boyd's third term on the Board of Supervisors. All of his elections for county offices have been for seats in the Rivanna District.

"I've tried to be a good citizen and a good representative for the Rianna District and the whole community as a whole. I am who I am, and hopefully people know what I stand for and what I hope to do for the community. And that is the way I am going to run," he said.

One of his top priorities is seeing that the 50 year water supply plan is completed.

Boyd, 63, was born in Washington DC and graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School. He moved to Albemarle County in 1982. He started his own financial planning business in 1991.

He is also a member of the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority and Rivanna Solid Waste Authority boards.
