Four-term Supervisor Sally Thomas has endorsed Democrat Madison Cummings in the race to fill her seat on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors. Thomas is retiring from the Board at the end of 2009.  Also on the ballot for the first contested race in sixteen years for the Samuel Miller District seat are Independent John Lowry and Republican Duane Snow.

“When I look at the challenges and the opportunities facing Albemarle County in the next four years, I think Madison Cummings is the best man for the job,” Thomas said during a press conference held at the County Office Building.

Thomas ran as an independent in each of her four campaigns. She said that she was not endorsing Cummings because of his political party, but because he has the experience. Thomas compiled a top-ten list of reasons why she made the endorsement. Highlights include his support for the adopted community water supply plan, his eight years of budgeting experience while on the Albemarle County School Board, and his service to the community through various government and non-profit agencies.
