REGIONAL COUNCIL

The Regional Council is a certified entity by the State Board that will propose projects and ensure accountability for the use of funds used to support projects endorsed by the Council. The intent of the regional structure is to provide an incentive for regions to collaborate in order to diversify the economy and create high paying jobs in the region.    

Regional Councils are business led and include individuals from a variety of sectors; education, government, civic or community leaders, economic and workforce development professionals, local government officials, regional planning entities and nonprofits.  

The Region Four Council is currently led by Chair William Goodwin Jr. and Vice Chair John Luke Jr. and includes the following 23 council members: Sherrie Armstrong, Victor Branch, John  “Will” Clements, Richard Cullen, Sam Edwards, Moses Foster Jr., Jennifer Hunter, Mark Hourigan, Barry Matherly, Jon Mathiason, Mark Moore, Michael Rao, Edward “Ted” Raspiller, Carter Reid, Gary Rhodes, Carrie Roth, Kim Scheeler, Martha Shickle, Natalie Slate, Lorin Sodell, Paul Tuck, John Vithoulkas, and Renee Williams.

SUPPORT ORGANIZATION

A regional council must be affiliated with or supported by a new or existing organization whose purposes and competencies include collaborative planning, economic development or workforce activities within the region. Region Four is supported by Grow Capital Jobs, led by Wilson H. Flohr. The purpose of the support organization is to provide fiduciary oversight and administrative services for the activities funded by monies received from Virginia Growth and Opportunity Fund (VGOF). The support organization operates with the advice and consent of the regional council.
