Bath Board of Supervisors Chairman Bruce McWilliams is Zeroing In

Hot Springs, Va. –

Bath Board of Supervisors Chairman Bruce McWilliams is going to start providing monthly updates on the Board’s work to Allegheny Mountain Radio. These updates are a new way to get information out about current topics the Board is addressing.

“This came out of a visioning session that we had back in June and another follow up session in September,” says McWilliams. “And we had worked with a facilitator who outlined some thoughts about how we could be more effective as government leaders. And as we talked about this information paramount to including the public as to what the county is doing and how they’re doing it. And one of the thoughts and recommendations from our facilitator was to perhaps follow up with a monthly or quarterly letter from the Chairman. I’ve decided that perhaps a good name will be Zeroing In, to give people a focus as to what we’re doing at the courthouse.”

Zeroing In will air on Allegheny Mountain Radio the first Monday of each month beginning in Noon Hour.

“I’ve noticed in the past that we often think things are going on and we don’t always understand in detail and as a lot of us have very busy schedules it’s hard for us to get to meetings,” says McWilliams. “And I think that we have needed to make a stronger effort to get information to people. And I think the more informed people are, the more harmony there is in terms of finding solutions for the things that need to move a county, particularly my county Bath County, into where it needs to be to be a healthy community both financially, school systems and all the things that go with positive growth.”

McWilliams welcomes questions from listeners. Questions can be emailed to Or you can mail questions to WCHG, PO Drawer G, Hot Springs, Virginia 24445.

“I think I would be very happy with folks that want to anonymously address something,” says McWilliams. “I would be thrilled if people would identify themselves in that it would give us an opportunity to have a true dialogue and be able to reach out to them a little bit more directly. But certainly if people are more comfortable to do that anonymously I think that’s fine. As long as we get the questions to the table, I’m all for that.”

Contact information for all members of the Bath County Board of Supervisors can be found on the Bath County website, Or you can call the County Administrator’s Office at 540-839-7221.

“Well I’m very excited about this new endeavor,” says McWilliams. “Again, I think it’s going to be a wonderful opportunity and perhaps in the future we can get other Board members to be a part of the program. And work on that so everyone has an opportunity to share their thoughts and be available to the public to answer questions.”

The first segment of McWilliams’ update, Zeroing In, will air Monday February 4th during Noon Hour and Traffic Jam, and on Tuesday morning during the Morning Drive. If you miss it, you can also listen to it on our website
