Two seek supervisor seat in Hartfield District

Barring a write-in candidate, the Board of Supervisors seat for the Hartfield District will be contested between Trudy V. Feigum and Robert L. LeBoeuf in the November 5 election.

The seat is currently held by Carlton Revere, who is not seeking another term.

Feigum and LeBoeuf were recently asked to send biographical information to the Sentinel as a means of introducing themselves to Hartfield District voters. Their responses follow.

Trudy Feigum

Trudy Feigum
Middlesex County is similar to the rural Colorado area in which I grew up. Graduating from a high school class of 10, I studied political science, history, and business administration at Colorado State University. Further study was in journalism at Michigan State University. I was secretary to the director of retired pay for the U.S. Air Force Accounting and Finance Center in Denver when I married husband Tom. We have been married for 47 years and have two sons and three grandchildren.

Tom’s schooling took us to Portland, Ore., where I was office manager for a dental clinic. Tom and I then purchased and operated a small business in Pierre, S.D.

In 1978 I became executive director of the South Dakota Dental Association (SDDA), retiring in 1998. I earned my Certified Association Executive designation from the American Society of Association Executives in 1994. I was the SDDA’s registered lobbyist in the South Dakota Legislature for 20 years. I’m an Honorary Fellow of the International College of Dentists.

In addition to serving as president of the Community Arts Council and regent of my Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter, I served on boards and committees in my church, community theater, hospice care, and the American Legion auxiliary. I was president of the Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce.

A life-long conservative interested in local politics, I have listened and learned about issues facing Middlesex County since we arrived by sailboat in 2001. I’ve attended and testified at many board of supervisors, planning commission, district planning commission and regional jail board authority meetings over the last several years. I was recruited by a group of like-minded Hartfield citizens with conservative values to be a candidate for the board of supervisors. I know the issues. I believe I can ably and responsibly represent the citizens of Middlesex County.

Robert LeBoeuf
Robert (Bob) LeBoeuf holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Brown University and an MA in economics from The American University in Washington, D.C. He served as an economic analyst and project management engineer for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)for 27 years. He concurrently served 20 years as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Air Force, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1986. His professional expertise includes systems analysis, program management, and strategic planning.

After his retirement from the CIA in 1994, LeBoeuf worked in private industry until 2001 when he retired from his position as Vice President for System Operations at ClubCorp.

He and his wife Christi moved to Hartfield in 2001. Since moving here, he has served as commander and treasurer of the Rappahannock Sail and Power Squadron; treasurer of the Middlesex County Industrial Development Authority; chairman of the Great Decisions Discussion Group; an examiner for the U.S. Coast Guard sanctioned Vessel Safety Check program; and a safe boating instructor for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

LeBoeuf currently is president and treasurer of the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park, president of his neighborhood homeowners’ association, and treasurer of the Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society.

In 2012, he wrote and published “A Voter’s Guide to the US Economy-2012”, an explanation of selected economic concepts and data that impact voters in their daily lives. He is an avid reader, designed and helped build two of his homes, and enjoys working outdoors.

LeBoeuf has a life-long record of public service, starting when he was an Eagle Scout and volunteer fireman as a teenager. “I feel I am well suited by temperament and experience to help make efficient, effective, and forward-looking decisions on the issues facing Middlesex County, and as a citizen I have a responsibility to do so,” he said.
