O’Bannon as chairman after serving as vice chairman in 2022. First elected to represent Fairfield in 1995, Thornton is serving his seventh term on the county’s board.

Nelson, first elected Varina District supervisor in 2011, is in his third term on Henrico’s board. He previously served as chairman in 2016 and 2019.
