Abbitt won’t seek re-election


Piney Mountain District Supervisor Watkins Abbitt announced at the Appomattox County Board of Supervisors meeting Monday that he won’t run for re-election this year.

He commended the board for its efforts — the senior members for their hard work and guidance, and the junior members for their dedication, expertise and willingness to work as a team.

Abbitt also praised County Administrator Susan Adams.

“I’ve worked with a lot of county administrators,” said Abbitt. “I’ll tell ya, Susan Adam is at the top of my list.”
