Supervisor’s race


The seat is being vacated by current Palmyra supervisor Bob Ullenbruch, who is not seeking re-election.

“Our community has been divided and I’d like to see us come together as neighbors,” Eager said.

Eager has been on the Fluvanna County Planning Commission for 20 years.  She has also served on the Board of Zoning Appeals for two years.

“Our community has had differences over whether the new high school should have been built, and that shouldn’t be,” Eager told the Review.  “We need to educate our children.  I’d like to see our children have an excellent education, but at the same time we need to take care of the whole county.”

Eager said the “main concern” of people she met while collecting signatures on her petition to run for office was the county’s increased taxes.  “I think we have to strike a delicate balance,” she said.  “The comprehensive plan says that one of our main goals is to remain rural.  But on the other hand we really do need businesses to increase our tax base and offset the taxes on the homeowners.”

If elected, Eager wants to “work together to keep our taxes at a responsible level so that people, young and old, can continue to live in Fluvanna.”

Born in Pennsylvania, Eager grew up in Ohio, lived in New York for 15 years, and moved to Fluvanna in 1984.  She and her husband Minor have been farmers for 35 years.  They have four grown children.

“I’ve been a dedicated public servant for 20 years,” Eager said when asked why Palmyra voters should choose her.  “I really like living here and I think other people would like to live here.  And in order to do that we have to make it a livable community, where people can afford it and have excellent education for their children.”

John Gooch is also running for Palmyra district supervisor.  The winner of the Nov. 3 election will serve a four-year term.
