The Clarke County Board of Supervisors recognized Supervisor A. R. “Pete” Dunning, Jr. on Monday for over 30 years of service to the county.
In a resolution adopted unanimously by the Board of Supervisors, Chairman Michael Hobert (Berryville) praised the White Post Supervisor’s commitment to protecting the County’s environmental resources and his support in the County’s initial implementation of sliding scale zoning. Hobert said that adoption of sliding scale zoning ultimately led to the formation of the Clarke County Easement Authority which today oversees 20% of County property in permanent easement.
Calling Dunning a “true leader”, Hobert said that Dunning was known for “aggressively speaking out for the common man whenever he felt he saw waste or stupidity at any level of government”.
Dunning was first elected to the Clarke County Board of Supervisors in 1980. He served on many boards and committees, including the Clarke County Planning Commission, and was Board of Supervisors chairman from 1986 through 2011.
Dunning’s term of office expires on December 31, 2011.
