Ron Wolff, a five-term member of the Accomack County Board of Supervisors, has announced his re-election candidacy for the District 2 seat in the Nov. 7 election.
“It has always been an honor to serve my constituents of District 2 on the board of supervisors, to keep taxes low, and provide the services we expect from local government,” said Wolff.
“I ask you for your continued support and your vote of confidence on Nov. 7 for re-election as your District 2 supervisor.”
Wolff owned and operated Wolff’s Sandwich Shoppe in Atlantic for 35 years before he retired in 2019.
He also worked as a high school basketball and soccer referee in Virginia and Maryland for 42 years, ending in 2021.
He has been a member of the board of supervisors for 20 years and served five times each as chairman and vice chairman.
In addition, Wolff has served as chairman of the Solid Waste Committee, the Eastern Shore Rail Trail Foundation, and the Wallops Leadership Council.
He has served as vice chairman of the Eastern Shore of Virginia 911 Commission and is a member of the Accomack-Northampton Transportation District Commission.
“Over my years in office, many changes have taken place on the Eastern Shore, in local government, and our personal lives,” said Wolff.
“I have worked hard to provide planned growth and development in the northern part of Accomack County and the Wallops complex, which includes NASA, Navy, Virginia Space, NOAA, and now Rocket Lab, all of which provide stable employment with good wages.”
“I have worked with the board of supervisors over the years to execute our initiatives to ensure a 20-minute-or-less response time for fire and EMS throughout the county,” Wolff said.
“Over the last several years I have been able to bring 24/7 coverage to Greenbackville Volunteer Fire Company for EMS coverage as new firemedics are trained and graduate into the county’s public safety department.
Wolff holds a bachelor’s degree in history and education from the University of Maryland College Park. He moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia in 1975 and taught social studies, U.S. history, and world history in Accomack County.
He and his wife, Becky, live in Assawoman.
