Wylliesburg resident Kay Morgan Pierantoni has announced her decision to seek election to the Charlotte County Board of Supervisors.

“I am announcing my intention to be a candidate in the November election to represent the citizens of Wylliesburg/Red Oak District on the board of supervisors,” Pierantoni said in a press release.

“I grew up in this district. Like many others, I left Charlotte County to attend college and then pursue a career. While I worked in Richmond at an accounting firm and then in North Carolina as an analyst for Philip Morris, I traveled back to Charlotte often to be with my family.”

Over the past 32 years Pierantoni has been involved in various roles in church, scouting, SPCA, Junior Achievement and schools, she said in her press release.

According to her release, in 2012 Pierantoni and husband Romano moved back to Charlotte to take care of her Mom and enjoy retirement.

“I had heard rumors about politics in Charlotte in February 2016. I spoke at the supervisors’ meeting about some of my concerns. I have spoken at each meeting since then. I have requested documents through (the Virginia Freedom of Information Act) and spent countless days and nights studying. I have grown more and more concerned,” she said.

Pierantoni is a graduate of Randolph Henry High School.

According to her press release, she has a strong conviction to make certain all citizens are aware and have an opportunity to be involved in the government decisions of the county. 

“I will be reaching out to the people in my district to listen to their concerns and share information I have learned with them. I hope our dialogue can result in changes in our beloved county,” she said.
