Union Hall Supervisor David Cundiff has been elected to a third year as chairman of the Franklin County Board of Supervisors.

During the board's annual reorganization meeting Thursday afternoon, Cundiff was the only nominee for the position, and he was elected unanimously.

Cundiff, who is also Rocky Mount's police chief, is serving his second term on the board, and this will be his third consecutive year as chairman of the board.

Cundiff operates a family beef and grain farm in Union Hall. He also served as president of the Franklin County Cattlemen's Association, producer member of the Virginia Tobacco Commission and former president of the Chatham/Gretna Southern States Cooperative.

Cline Brubaker, Blackwater District supervisor, was elected vice chairman of the board for a second term.

He was the only nominee for the position, and the vote was unanimous.

Brubaker is a dairy farmer from Callaway.

Cundiff, who was first elected to the board in 2007 after former supervisor Charles Poindexter was elected as a state delegate, said he appreciates the board's support and is looking forward to working on many projects that the county is pursuing.

In other action at Thursday's meeting, the board:

•approved the 2014 meeting board meeting dates and times.
