A new City Council and School Board were sworn in yesterday to nominally1 serve from 2017-2020.
Four of the nine Council members are new: Andreas D. Addison (1st), Kim Gray (2nd), Kristen Nye Larson (4th), and Michael J. Jones (9th). Council elected Chris Hilbert (3rd District) as Council President and Cynthia Newbille (7th District) as Council Vice President. Councilmembers serve four year terms and elect a Council President and Council Vice President to serve two-year terms.
Eight of the nine School Board members are new, with Jeff Bourne (3rd) being the only returning member. There is heavy speculation that Mr.Bourne will run for Jennifer McClellan’s House of Delegates seat should she be successful in her bid for Donald McEachin’s Senate seat.
