Waynesboro’s loss, Shenandoah County’s gain

Column by Chris Graham

It’s been two years, and the upset feelings still boil up inside me. Tim Williams, on his way to being voted in as mayor by the new cabal in charge on Waynesboro City Council, was dispatched to send the message to then-city manager Doug Walker that his services would no longer be needed, and that he wouldn’t want to be around anyway, because the new backward-thinking majority on City Council was just going to undo everything that he had done anyway.

The good news for Shenandoah County is that Walker was available when the Board of Supervisors there was looking to hire a new county administrator. The bad news for Waynesboro – that Walker was available when Shenandoah County came a-callin’. has the story.
