Cape Charles Wave

“Northampton County is truly on the move,” District 1 Supervisor Willie Randall told  a Cape Charles audience December 18.

Randall and State Delegate Lynwood Lewis held a “Town Hall” meeting on county and state issues.

According to Randall, Northampton County’s priorities are education, economic development, health care, bond refinancing, and waste collection.

EDUCATION: All positions on the seven-member school board will be up for election in November, Randall said. (Current school board members are appointed.) Thereafter, school board terms will be staggered.

Randall added that he will also be on the ballot for re-election in November.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: Randall said the county has advertised for a new director of economic development and has narrowed the list of applicants to two.
