Since Ron Meyer has withdrawn himself from consideration, who should the Board of Supervisors appoint to represent Broad Run District for the next 3+months? The current Broad Run Planning Commissioner, Jack Ryan, has made it clear that he doesn’t want the job. Rumor has it that the board is now considering former Planning Commissioners.
Why appoint a former Planning Commissioner when a former Supervisor is available? Isn’t a former Supervisor preferable to someone who has never served on the board? Republican Steve Stockman previously served two terms on the Board of Supervisors. He lives in and knows the Broad Run district. Steve knows how the board works and can immediately step in to represent Broad Run District with no lag time. Steve Stockman will need no on-the-job training. He knows well how the board functions.
It just makes sense to appoint Steve Stockman to serve the Broad Run district on the Board of Supervisors. Let’s hope Chairman Scott York will do the right thing for the district and support the appointment of Stockman to complete the term.
