The Mathews County Board of Supervisors, in its organizational meeting last Wednesday, elected Charles Ingram to serve as chairman during 2018 and G.C. Morrow to serve as vice chair.
Deputy county administrator Julie Kaylor was re-appointed to serve as clerk, with administrative assistant Susan Traner as deputy clerk.
Board members were assigned to serve on various committees, boards, and commissions, with a brief, good-natured stand-off when three supervisors expressed their desire to be appointed to the two slots available on the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission.
Newcomers Amy Dubois and Pepper Love and first-term board member Morrow all wanted to represent the county in MPPDC seats that were left vacant by former supervisors Jack White, who declined to run for re-election, and O.J. Cole, who lost his bid for a fourth term. A coin toss was considered to make the determination, but Dubois eventually conceded, and Morrow and Love were appointed to the MPPDC.
