One local town is gaining another leader.
Keith Rogers Jr. has been named the Town Manager of Dumfries, according to a release.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the Town of Dumfries and excited to become apart of positive change and the excitement that’s currently happening within the town,” Rogers said in a release. I am looking forward to working with the town council, staff, and the community to move us closer to our 2030 vision.”
He was voted into the position by the Dumfries Town Council on Tuesday.
“As a council we took our time to ensure that Keith’s experience and values would help us to continue to develop the Town of Dumfries into a community where businesses want to locate, and families want to live, work and play,” Mayor Derrick Wood said in a release. “We believe that our community will become more involved, as Keith has demonstrated a commitment to engaging residents in municipal governing.”
The new Town Manager previously served as the Chief of Staff and Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Richmond.
He has also been an advisor for elected officials, has managed projects, and has led the city’s Internal Consulting Team.
Rogers received his bachelor’s in political science and master’s in public administration from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
