Posted on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 at 11:55 am

Jason Bellows, Chairman of Lancaster’s Board of Supervisors, made a mark in the county’s history with his appointment as second vice president of the Virginia Association of Counties’ Executive Committee.

“I will be the first from Lancaster County to serve on the executive committee,” he said.

VACo considers itself the voice of the state’s county governments and “exists to support county officials and to effectively represent, promote and protect the interests of counties to better serve the people of Virginia.” As second vice president, Bellows will be part of a six-member team that supports VACo’s president and carries out actions on behalf of the board of directors between its meetings.

Prior to this appointment, Bellows had a history of providing service to VACo. For the past two years, he served as Region 2 director, a position that’s selected by the counties within that region. He also spent three years on the education steering committee, two of which he served as the chairman.
