Mallek formally launches campaign for Supervisor

Reader comments (1)

20070313mallek1 This morning in front of the Albemarle County Office Building, Democrat Ann Mallek formally announced her campaign for the White Hall District seat on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.  She is challenging incumbent David Wyant (R) who was elected in 2003 to a four-year term. Elections are being held this November for three seats on the Board.

A native of Albemarle and a 1967 graduate of Albemarle High School, Ms. Mallek runs a cattle operation in Earlysville with her husband Leo Mallek, an Earlysville dentist.  In her announcement speech, Ms. Mallek described her past volunteer experience on County boards dealing with issues including zoning, transportation, development, and conservation.  "I am a strong proponent of protecting the environment and rural spaces, and of growth areas that are developed only after rationale, long term planning and proper funding of necessary public services," said Mallek.

Ms. Mallek highlighted three goals for her service on the Board:

  • Support of Crozet's small town quality of life
  • Support for Albemarle's agriculture and its rural quality of life
  • Only encourage development that protects human and natural resources

She also made two pledges "to the people of the White Hall District."  Mallek said, "I will not sacrifice the people in the Crozet growth area....Downtown is the heart of the Crozet Master Plan.  It has a living commercial center today.  The County must honor its commitment to downtown Crozet..."  Secondly, she indicated she would "work against policies that try to squeeze too many [housing] units into the growth areas."
