Dwyer serves as an at-large councilman, representing the entire town.

“It is a great honor to serve on Farmville Town Council,” Dwyer said. “The last 17 months have been very busy, but also very exciting. I love this job and feel I have made a difference. We have an excellent council and we are getting things done.”

Dwyer was elected  August 2014 to fill an unexpired term of David Whitus, who was elected mayor.

During his time on the council, Dwyer has served on the town’s assets and resources committee, the development and marketing committee and the enhancement of roads and neighborhoods committee.

“During the last year and a half, the Town of Farmville has accomplished many good things, including lowering town debt, cutting expenses at the town golf course, opening the dog park, establishing a Christmas plaza, building the fire department’s burn building and much more,” Dwyer said.

“Another term will allow me to see the completion of several important projects, including the Longwood University vice presidential debate, the Milnwood Road project and the sale of Mottley Lake with the continued access to the water.”

He said the future of the town is bright and “I would love to continue serving the citizens of Farmville.”
