Mathews County has recently welcomed three new staff members: two in administration and one in the building official's office.

Chuck Huntley, the county’s new director of technology, will manage and maintain all of the county’s technological systems, including computers, servers, and other network components.

Huntley previously held similar positions in Essex County and Richmond County. He lives in Middlesex County with his wife, Nicole, who is an instructional technology resource teacher for Middlesex County Public Schools.

Caroline Oxley will serve as the deputy clerk to the board of supervisors and the county’s communications manager. She will maintain records and the county website, handling social media and public relations, and serving as back-up for board of supervisors’ clerk Julie Kaylor.

Oxley has an undergraduate degree in religion and history from Virginia Commonwealth University and is working on a master’s degree in religion from the University of Iceland. Prior to coming to Mathews, she worked as a field archaeologist for the College of William and Mary. She and her husband, Charles Allen III, live in Gloucester.

Glenn Scatchard is the county’s new maintenance technician, serving in the office of the building official. He is responsible for maintaining all buildings, docks, parks, and equipment in the county, and help with the grounds, as necessary.

Scatchard has 30 years of experience in the construction and guttering industry as the owner of his own business, Rappahannock Restoration and Repair. His son-in-law, Thomas Cross, is now primarily handling the business, along with Scatchard’s wife, Dianne.
