Campaign for interim supervisor
Randolph applied for the open supervisor vacancy left when Chris Dumler resigned the position in early June 2013.  He also stated he will not seek the position in the November 2013 special election.
Sent to the press: "I am today announcing my candidacy for the interim position as the Scottsville representative on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.
"I intend to respect the wishes of the county executive and of what I took as the majority thinking of the Board of Supervisors at their meeting last Wednesday, by not actively seeking election to this seat in this November’s election. My only interest is to ensure that the Scottsville district is again represented as soon as possible by a strong, effective voice for community participation in local governmental decision-making, for the preservation of the values and freedoms that rural residents should reasonably expect, for adherence to the comprehensive plan’s vision of the current lines of demarcation between growth areas and planned development and for the delivery of the best educational services possible within the context of traditional neighborhood schools.
"In the Scottsville district I will seek to ensure that cell phone coverage is further enhanced along the route 20 corridor between the Town of Scottsville and Charlottesville, response times are further improved by the Albemarle County police to resident requests for assistance and property taxes are kept as low as possible for the elderly and people on fixed incomes.
"In the coming weeks I will be meeting with residents of Scottsville to hear their concerns about the future of our district and to address my vision of how I can best represent the protection of their interests over the coming months.
