MPO Board Honors Departing Supervisors Snow And Thomas

A board that oversees major transportation projects for our region has honored two departing Albemarle supervisors. Charlottesville Vice-Mayor Kristin Szakos has saluted Duane Snow (pictured left) and Rodney Thomas (pictured right). The two men must leave the Metropolitan Planning Organization next month because they lost their reelection bids. Snow, Thomas and a VDOT representative voted in 2011 to include the Western Bypass in a regional transportation plan. Three Albemarle residents who are not current supervisors will join the holdover board members to determine new committee assignments, including the MPO. The board that takes office in January will include several critics of the Western Bypass.
