Booth honored for 12 years of service
The Prince Edward County Board of Supervisors dedicated time during its regular monthly meeting, Dec. 10, to honor Beverly M. Booth for her contributions to the county as its commissioner of revenue. Booth recently retired from that role and will join the Board of Supervisors in January 2020 after having been elected in November to the role of Farmville 101 District supervisor. During the Dec. 10 meeting, County Administrator Wade Bartlett read, “As commissioner of revenue for the county of Prince Edward, Virginia, from Sept. 4, 2007-Nov. 30, 2019, the board would like to present you this plaque for your service to the county.” Applause ensued, and Farmville 701 District Supervisor and Board Chairman Jim Wilck offered his thanks to her as she walked up to accept the plaque.
