Snow, Thomas Elected as Albemarle Supervisors

Tuesday, Nov. 3rd

Republicans are taking two seats on the Board of Supervisors in Albemarle County after winning close elections Tuesday night.

The biggest surprise of the night was in the Rio District where Democrat incumbant David Slutzky was beaten by challenger Rodney Thomas.

The Rio District is made up of the suburbs just north of Charlottesville.

Slutzky has been a member of the board since 2006 and is currently its chairman.

Thomas campaigned on a platform of opposing new taxes and protecting the rights of land owners.

In the Samuel Miller District, Duane Snow is the new supervisor. He'll take the seat currently held by Sally Thomas who is stepping down.

Snow is a Republican, Thomas is a Democrat. Snow, a longtime local businessman, defeated Democrat Madison Cummings and independent John Lowry.

Thomas told the Newsplex, "I'm on Cloud 9 right now, this is for the people of Albemarle County."

The district includes the area that stretches from Ivy to Red Hill.
