McKeel Forms Common Grounds Council

An independent candidate for the Albemarle Board of Supervisors Jack Jouett District has formed a new group. McKeel is bringing together a group of educators, business leaders, and environmentalists to start a Common Grounds Council. She says she wanted a variety of experts to work together in a non-partisan way. So far, the council includes Jonathan Cannon, Gordon Walker, Bill Edgerton, Kathy Galvin, Nicholas Garber, Paul Matherne, Frank Stoner, and Ann Rooker.
