Walker tapped to head up Shenandoah County government

Edited by Chris Graham

Former Waynesboro city manager Doug Walker was hired last week by Shenandoah County to serve as its new county administrator.

Walker, 48, will take the job effective July 1.

Walker was forced out in Waynesboro after the 2008 city elections shifted political power on Waynesboro City Council to a conservative wing bent on undoing initiatives started by the previous City Council.

Walker served as city manager in Waynesboro from 2003-2008. He joined the St. Paul, Minn.,-based Springsted, a government consulting company, in November 2008 as a vice president.
