Supervisor of Trails
I am pleased to run for a second term as Supervisor of Trails. In my first term, I worked to support our volunteers, land managers, and trails. I emphasized safety through the use of PPE and effective COVID-19 policies. I managed the budget to obtain tools and resources for our volunteers. I responded to land managers with successful meetings, policies, and updated agreements. I improved trails as a maintainer, led team events like clearing blowdowns, and worked on the team that completed the Old Rag connector trail and bridge. I made progress on an easement that would protect a multi-mile section of the Tuscarora Trail. I added the North River District to our official trails inventory.

If elected, I will work with staff and Council for an effective trails budget and resources. I will recruit District Managers (DM’s) as needed and support them in their work with maintainers, with public land managers and private property owners and in responses to major events. I will work to complete easements and effective agreements with our land managers. I will continue to support our outreach efforts to individuals and groups for trail work.
Thank you for this opportunity. I would appreciate your support.
