Nelson County, Virginia

Via press release from Ernie Reed

Ernie Reed will announce his candidacy for Nelson County Board of Supervisors, Central District, on Friday, March 10, at 12 noon at the Nelson County Courthouse in Lovingston,

Ernie, who will be running as a Democrat, is a retired high school school administrator who is a life-long education, arts and conservation community advocate

“I hope to be able to continue the work that Connie Brennan has done in such an outstanding way over the years I have known her,” said Ernie. “Her absence on the Board of Supervisors would create a void that I would hope to fill with the same energy and vision she has given to Nelson County.”

After building his home in Faber in the early 80’s, and working at Wintergreen Resort and actively volunteering in the Nelson County community, he and his family moved to Charlottesville and founded the Living Education Center for Ecology and the Arts, an alternative private non-profit high school. After the close of his school, Ernie helped organize Friends of Nelson and moved back to his Faber home “for the long-haul.”

“It is with delight and confidence that I look forward to handing the reins of responsibility to Ernie for the business of helping Nelson County continue to move forward, “ said Connie Brennan, current Central District Supervisor. “His knowledge and experience in many fields, from business to the environment, will help keep the Commonwealth’s mandates of protecting the health, safety and welfare of our residents foremost in his deliberations. His energy and dedication will bring forward new ideas for the future.”

Ernie’s campaign, like his life, will focus on education, economics and the environment. “Having run small businesses, both for profit and not, I understand the importance of work that sustains the community over the long-term, “Ernie said.

“I understand the frustration of people who feel their voices are not being heard,” Ernie said. “Issues may have many sides but ultimately we are one community.”
