Grzeika unanimously elected Board chairman

The King George Board of Supervisors elected Joe Grzeika as chairman for 2014 on a unanimous vote at last week’s meeting on Jan. 7. Grzeika took over the gavel from Dale Sisson, At-Large rep, who was chairman last year for 2013.

This is Grzeika’s sixth time as chairman. He was first elected chairman in 1996, which was the first year of his first term on the Board of Supervisors representing the James Madison district.

Grzeika last faced election in 2011, when he beat former single-term School Board member Renee Parker, winning 53.8 percent of the vote.

Jim Howard was elected vice chairman of the five-member board on a vote of 4-1. With no other nominations, Dahlgren rep Ruby Brabo nonetheless voted against Howard.

This is a third separate stint on the Board of Supervisors for Howard, who won back the James Monroe seat this past November, which he last held from 2000 through 2009. He has a long history of public service, including on the School Board beginning in the late 1980s through 1991, following a previous term on the Board of Supervisors.

In the most recent election, Howard beat incumbent John LoBuglio in a four-way race, with Howard getting more than a third of the vote and winning with 38.7 percent to LoBuglio’s 19.55 percent. The others who lost that Supervisor election contest in James Monroe were Jeff Bueche with 23.23 percent of the vote, and Rich Lorey with 18.13 percent.

The other member of the Board is Cedell Brooks, representing Shiloh.

In separate actions, Grzeika and Howard also were elected to the same positions for the Wireless Authority and the Service Authority. (See related article elsewhere in this issue to hear about Brabo’s objections to the Service Authority election.)

Howard was appointed to the Regional Jail Board Commission, to the Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging, as the alternate on the Potomac Watershed Roundtable, and to the Ralph Bunche Advisory Committee.
