Statement from Goochland County Regarding District 2 Supervisor Manuel Alvarez, Jr.

Goochland County prides itself on public trust and transparency, as demonstrated through the Board of Supervisors’ adopted Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct. The County is aware of an inappropriate tweet that District 2 Supervisor Manuel Alvarez, Jr. shared on Tuesday, October 2nd; it was brought to our attention on Wednesday, October 3rd.  Comments and opinions shared by individual Board members, including Supervisor Alvarez, are personal opinions and do not reflect any position of the Goochland County Board of Supervisors or Goochland County.

 

We appreciate that Supervisor Alvarez realized the inappropriateness of his tweet, and immediately apologized for his actions.

 

“This unfortunate incident is not reflective of the Goochland County community,” said County Administrator John A. Budesky.  “We are a community that values and respects civil discourse regarding all perspectives, and promotes the sharing of ideas and opinions in a constructive and respectful manner.”
