Chesser (Rivanna District) will complete his first term in December 2013.
“It really got down to, I was looking at myself, my age and the thought that I would like to be able to do some other things besides dealing with the issues in the county,” said Chesser. “I’m hopeful we will finish out the year and get some other things accomplished; dealing with infrastructure.”
Chesser has made economic development his driving force during his board tenure. This year it appears the county will make movement towards developing water infrastructure to Zion Crossroad through a public-private partnership.
“My intention [for the future] is to try to be involved in economic development, either working through Chamber [of Commerce] or some other organization to promote quality economic development,” said Chesser. “We need to define that a little bit more. There are a lot of things we need to make sure are in place in order to have positive economic development.”
