As one man nears his exit, another man enters.
Bart Randall announced today his campaign to succeed retiring Garrisonville District Supervisor Mark Dudenhefer on the Stafford County Board of Supervisors. A Navy veteran, and the district’s current representative and Vice-Chair of the Stafford County Planning Commission, Randall calls himself is a proponent of smart growth who will focus on families that live in the county.
“I’m running for County Supervisor because I want our families to thrive,” Randall said. “We’re more than just a ‘commuter community’ and I want Stafford County to grow into a vibrant, dynamic place to live, work, and play,” said Randall in a press release. “As your next County Supervisor, I’ll focus on progress centered on education, health, recreation, and connectedness so our families can flourish”
Randall says the next Garrisonville Supervisor will need to work the balance the needs of a growing community with a recent influx of new homes, the need for economic development, and infrastructure improvements.
Dudenhefer endorsed Randall for the seat.
“It has been my honor to serve our growing community filled with so many incredible, hard-working people. To continue the important work we have begun, I strongly endorse Bart Randall who I know will be a strong leader for the community progress we need,” said Dudenehfer.
Randall has served on the Planning Commission since at least 2018.
Dudenhefer was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2005. Dudenehefer took a break from the Board and went to Richmond where he was elected to serve in the House of Delegates for two non-consecutive terms. He ran again of the Board of Supervisors in 2017 and won back his seat.
