He was twice elected to the Goochland Board of Supervisors, serving in that role from 2012-2020.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to leverage my leadership and county government experience to assist during this transition,” stated Interim County Administrator Alvarez. “I look forward to fostering the great relationships amongst employees, School Administration, and citizens to ensure our continued success.”
Mr. Alvarez will assume his duties as Goochland’s Interim County Administrator on August 9, 2021.
