Christian Goodwin, who has served as Louisa County’s Finance director since Dec. 13, 2010, was promoted to deputy county administrator at the Louisa County Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, Sept.16.
“I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to continue to serve the citizens and I’m glad to serve in whatever role the supervisors see fit,” Goodwin said. “I’m humbled by the opportunity.”
Goodwin will continue to lead the department of finance and will absorb oversight of the general services department and the comprehensive services act coordinator in his new position.
Areas which now fall under Goodwin’s direct supervision include services for at-risk youth and the Comprehensive Services Act, refuse and recycling centers, landfill, custodians and the animal shelter to name a few.
While his duties will expand as deputy county administrator, Goodwin is familiar with the work that he is taking on, as he is in regular contact with the director of general services daily.
“Finance and general services worked hand-in-hand anyway and I look forward to monitoring those as deputy county administrator,” Goodwin said.
County Administrator Robert Dubé said that 11 departments reported to the county administrator’s office as of Monday. But with Goodwin taking on oversight of three of the departments, he said this would provide him the ability to focus on the strategic objectives that come to him from the board of supervisors.
