Cornell “Brick” Goldman has announced he is running for Charlotte County Board of Supervisor (BOS) for the Cullen/Red House District.

Goldman, who lives in the Cullen area, is a 1969 graduate of Randolph-Henry High School and has a bachelor’s degree in animal science and a Master of Science degree in education from Virginia Tech.

Goldman worked for seven years as an extension agent in Appomattox and Campbell Counties prior to working 30 years with Syngenta Crop Protection as a sales rep and product development specialist in Michigan and Ohio. During that time, he continued to farm row crops on his farm in Cullen. Currently, he is a full-time vegetable and row crop farmer.

Currently, Goldman serves the following organizations: board member at Charlotte County Farm Bureau, Charlotte County Planning Commission, Farm Service Agency committee member, Southside Soil and Water Conservation District member, and president of the Southside Virginia Fruit and Vegetable Association, a nonprofit organization he created to help local farmers market their fruit and vegetables to large distributors and grocery store chains in the state of Virginia. He is also a Deacon at St. Andrews Baptist Church and serves as the Sunday School superintendent.

“I believe in giving back some of what’s been given to me, to serve my fellow man. Whether it’s a request to plant a garden for students at a local school, shoveling the snow for the elderly in my community, or mentoring and providing jobs for local students, my services will always be available. If elected to the Board of Supervisors, I’ll be the voice for the people of the Cullen/Red House District and will continue to serve you.

Goldman and wife Melanie live in Cullen and have three children, Brian, Joshua and Hannah.
