County Board Appoints New Leadership, Looks Back on 2010

The county board reflected on 2010 at its meeting yesterday evening. Board members were treated to a five-minute year-in-review video prepared by the staff of the county’s cable channel.

From environmental initiatives to Long Bridge Park to Arlington’s “car free” push, the video’s unspoken, underlying message was that the county has remained proactive about pursuing larger policy and infrastructure goals despite the tough economic times. (The video never actually mentioned the economic climate.)

Also at yesterday’s meeting, the board announced, as expected, that it has selected Chris Zimmerman to take over as chairman on Jan. 1, succeeding Jay Fisette.

The board tapped Mary Hynes to succeed Zimmerman as vice chairman.

In Arlington, the chair and vice chair serve a one-year term, typically corresponding with whoever is up for re-election. Zimmerman was re-elected this year, and Hynes faces re-election in 2011.
