This past week, Sherri Blevins, who represents District B, was elected chair of the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors, and Sue Kass was elected chair of the Montgomery County School Board.
Mary Biggs was elected vice chair of the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors. Penny Franklin was elected vice chair of the Montgomery County School Board.
Blevins, who was first elected to the county board in 2019, recently failed in her bid for the Republican nomination for the House seat left vacant when Christiansburg’s Nick Rush stepped down. Blevins operates a small business and has been active in the local GOP for the past few years.
District F’s Biggs is the longest sitting supervisor, having been first elected in 1996. She is a retired elementary school teacher. Biggs balances the board as a member of the county’s Democrat party.
Across the hall in the county administration building, school leaders elected Sue Kass (District F) as chair. She was first elected to the board two years ago. Representing District B, Franklin is the school board’s longest sitting member, having been elected in 2000 and represents District B.
Meanwhile in Blacksburg, Susan Anderson was named vice mayor for the upcoming year. She was elected to the council in 2006 and previously served three terms as vice mayor.
