The Goochland County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, to elect District 4 Supervisor Charlie Vaughters as Chair and District 3 Supervisor Tom Winfree as Vice-Chair for 2024.
Mr. Vaughters succeeds District 2 Supervisor Neil Spoonhower as Chair of the Board. Mr. Vaughters and Mr. Winfree are serving as the Board’s Chair and Vice-Chair for the first time. Mr. Vaughters was initially appointed to the Board of Supervisors following the passing of Don Sharpe in 2022, serving as Vice-Chair in 2023. Both Mr. Vaughters and Mr. Winfree were elected in 2023, with Mr. Winfree serving in his first term as supervisor.
On being named Chair, Vaughters stated, “I am humbled and grateful for the trust put into me by Goochland voters in the November 2023 elections and by my fellow Supervisors in naming me Chair of the Board of Supervisors. “Thriving”, “Well-Run”, and “A Great Place to Live” are words and phrases that first come to mind when I think about how best to describe Goochland County. I am confident that this will be the case for decades and generations to come and this Board and our outstanding County staff and leadership will work tirelessly to make that occur.”
Vaughters continued, “Please reach out to your Supervisor with any ideas or concerns about the County, its assets, and our operations and know that you have a team on this dais committed to serving all residents of Goochland County to the best of our abilities.”
