On Tuesday, November 1, 2022, Mr. Vaughters was appointed Interim Supervisor for District 4, filling a vacancy created due to the untimely death of Supervisor Donald E. “Don” Sharpe on September 17, 2022.
The Board was required by state law to appoint a qualified voter of District 4 by November 1, 2022 to fill the vacancy until the next election on November 7, 2023. After advertisement of the opportunity and a very deliberative selection process, the Board selected Charles B. Vaughters to serve in the capacity of Interim Supervisor.

He is a graduate of Rice University, and the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia where he earned his Master of Business Administration. Mr. Vaughters has worked in various roles in investment banking, commercial banking, and independent consulting. Currently, he serves as Managing Director and Head of Commercial Banking Development for Primis Bank in Richmond. He also serves as a Board Member and Vice Chair of the Virginia Board for Professional and Occupational Regulation, appointed by Governor Glenn Youngkin for a four-year term ending in July 2026. In addition, he is active in the community serving as a Board member and Chair of Jacob’s Ladder, as a Board Member of Union Presbyterian Seminary, and teaches financial literacy to incarcerated individuals through Resilience Education.
“I am honored the Board selected me to join them in service to our community,” said Charlie Vaughters. “It is a great privilege and responsibility to serve in this role, I look forward to working with everyone to continue Goochland’s success.”
