Mr. Lumpkins fills a vacancy on the Board of Supervisors created as a result of the unfortunate and untimely death of Supervisor Ned S. Creasey on March 10, 2018.
The Board was required by state law to appoint, by April 24, 2018, a qualified voter of District 3 to fill the vacancy until a special election could be held on November 6, 2018. After a very deliberative selection process, the Board on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 selected Mr. Lumpkins to serve as Supervisor for District 3. As a qualified voter of District 3, he had expressed an interest and willingness to serve in the capacity of Interim Supervisor.
Mr. Lumpkins is a long-time resident of Goochland County and has served for over six years as a member of the Goochland County School Board, recently serving as the Chair. This was his second term as chair, having previously served in this role in 2015. A graduate of the University of Dayton and the University of Richmond T.C. Williams School of Law, he currently operates his own law firm.
“Mr. Lumpkins is a welcome addition to the Board”, said Ken Peterson, Chairman of the Goochland County Board of Supervisors. "He has extensive experience serving the citizens of Goochland, and I look forward to his participation as a valued member of the Board."
“I am honored the Board selected me to join them in service to our community” said John L. Lumpkins, Jr. “The Supervisors and the School Board have worked closely for over six years that I served on the School Board, so I know I am joining an experienced and dedicated group of individuals.” Lumpkins went on to note, “While I will miss the close relationships with my School Board colleagues, Dr. Raley, and other school leaders, I know that I am leaving a well-running team that is poised for continued success.”
Mr. Lumpkins term of office began with his swearing in and shall conclude when a candidate is elected during the special election on November 6, 2018 and qualifies for the office.
