Ken Boyd was a member of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors who served three terms.[1] He is a financial planner who served on several Albemarle County boards and commissions before first being elected in 2003.[2]

He chose not seek a fourth term.[3]

Biography

Boyd was born in Washington D.C. and graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School.[4] Shortly afterwards, he moved to Burlington, North Carolina with his family.

He moved to Albemarle County in 1982 to take a job working for Jefferson National Bank. In 1991, he left the bank to start a financial planning business in 1991. He completed his undergraduate degree many years later from Averett University, followed soon by an MBA. Boyd's political career began in 1993 when he volunteered for the gubernatorial campaign of Republican George Allen. In 1999, he successfully ran for the Rivanna district seat on the Albemarle County School Board.

Committee Assignments and Appointments

Boyd has chaired the Audit Committee, and served as a member of the Fiscal Impact Advisory Committee, the Development Review Process Task Force, and the Eastern Connector Alignment Study Committee. While a member of the School Board, he served for two years on the CATEC board.

Board of Supervisors

In 2003, Boyd successfully ran for a seat on the Board of Supervisors, defeating Democrat Peter Hallock. He was the chairperson from 2007 to 2008. Four years later, he ran for reelection and beat Marcia Joseph by a 146 vote margin.[9] In 2009, he told C-Ville Weekly he would not run for reelection to his Supervisor seat in 2011.[4]

Boyd originally sought the chairmanship of the Board in 2009, but withdrew his name from consideration in the face of opposition.[10] Democrat Ann Mallek went on to win her second year as chair of the Board. Despite failing to become chair, Boyd has been described as the Board's "de-facto majority leader" in the press.[4]

Hollymead controversy

Boyd raised the ire of some constituents after he announced his support for rezoning 140 acres south of Hollymead Town Center as a growth area.[11]

Boyd originally supported opening up the area for further development but agreed to "do what the people want" and opposed the construction after significant constituent oppositions.[11] Three weeks later, Boyd changed his mind leading to his being dubbed a flip-flopper, a term he said was "appropriate."[11] After his switch back, Boyd held a town hall where he faced the ire of over a hundred constituents, who demanded he withdraw his support for the development until infrastructure could be built to handle it.[11]

Western bypass rebirth

Boyd played a central role during the June 8th, 2011 surprise vote to change Albemarle County's position on the western bypass.[12]

Since that time, Boyd held multiple Town Hall meetings to allow citizen input on the Bypass project.[13] Boyd has also written and explained his position on the issue.[14]

The move was condemned in an editorial in The Daily Progress, Charlottesville's daily newspaper, stating that the actions were "disrespectful toward constituents and disdainful of best practices in public decision-making."[15] The editorial went on to state that the board's actions were "appalling", an "end run around the public," whether "the bypass is the best solution for the public or not, the manner in which this step was taken is contemptuous in the extreme" and amounted to an "act of contempt for the public" as well as for "best practices of public leadership."[15]

All of Boyd's elections for county offices have been for seats in the Rivanna Magisterial District.
