Planning Commission applicants share views of Rapp’s future
Consensus: The county must prepare for change
At Monday’s meeting of the Rappahannock County Board of Supervisors, the board is expected to fill two vacancies on the county’s Planning Commission — one each in the Jackson and Piedmont districts.
The Jackson vacancy is due to the retirement of Raymond Brown. Amissville residents Page Glennie and Rick Kohler have both applied for the post.
The Piedmont vacancy was created when former Planning Commission chair Gary Settle resigned to become Supervisor of the Virginia State Police. In March the BOS appointed former Piedmont Supervisor Mike Biniek to fill out Settle’s term, which ended in June. Biniek and Tom Junk, both of Sperryville, have applied for the position.
Below are short profiles of the four applicants, each responding to the same set of questions from the Rappahannock News. All of the interviews were edited for brevity and clarity, and subsequently cleared with each applicant.
