Yesterday was the first day that Brenda Garton is back at work in Greene County to run that local government while the Board of Supervisors seeks a permanent county administrator. Mark B. Taylor resigned last month to take a position as School Superintendent in Spotsylvania County.
Garton previously served as Greene’s interim administrator after John Barkley stepped down in 2018. She’s also served in similar caretaker positions in Rappahannock County, Frederick County, Gloucester County, Orange County, and Prince George County.
“I enjoyed my previous service as the Interim County Administrator in Greene County in 2018 and 2019, so it will feel like coming home to work here again,” Garton said in a press release. “It is critical to the continuity of the organization, staff, and ongoing projects to maintain stability and steady progress while the Board searches for a new County Administrator.”
The next meeting of the Greene County Board of Supervisor is October 11.
