Hazard to Resign from Middleburg Council; Town Seeks Applicants

On Sept. 30, Councilman Kevin Hazard will resign from his spot on the Middleburg Town Council after nine years on the dais, citing a move out of town.

To fill the vacancy, the town is seeking interested residents to apply for the spot. Residents have until Oct. 1 to submit their letters of interest. The council will review the submissions on Oct. 10 and interview candidates on Oct. 24 before making an appointment that night. Under Virginia law, the council has 45 days from the date of the vacancy to make an appointment—creating a Nov. 14 deadline to do so.

In the longer-term, the Town Council on Oct. 10 is expected to direct Town Attorney Martin Crim to file a Writ of Election for a special election to be held on May 5, 2020 for town voters to decide who will fill the vacant seat until the term expires on June 30, 2022.
