Departing Floyd County Administrator Dan Campbell

Departing Floyd County Administrator Dan Campbell

Floyd County administrator Dan Campbell is leaving the Blue Ridge Parkway and is headed to the Shenandoah National Park north of Charlottesville.

As I reported in The Floyd Press, Campbell resigned his job Tuesday to take a new post as county executive for Madison County, Virginia, where Skyline Drive runs through the western part of the county.

Floyd loses a good chief executive who has helped guide the county through difficult times for the past eight years.  Campbell came to Floyd after 16 years as Galax City manager.

He will be missed.

Terri Morris, the assistant county manager, will serve as interim boss as Floyd County Supervisors begin a job search for a new chief executive.
