Ken Boyd is a financial planner who has served on several Albemarle County boards and commissions. He was last elected as a Republican to a second term on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors[1].


Boyd was born in Washington D.C. and graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School[2]. Shortly afterwards, he moved to Burlington, North Carolina with his family. He briefly worked for a Democratic candidate for governor in the 1968 campaign. A car injury prevented him from serving in the Vietnam War.

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.

Four years later, he opted to run for the Board of Supervisors, and defeated Democrat Peter Hallock. In 2007, he ran for re-election and beat Marcia Joseph with a 3% margin. In 2009, he announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination in Virginia's 5th District. He also told C-Ville weekly he did not anticipate running for re-election to his Supervisor seat in 2011[3]. He did not win the nomination.
