As a third-generation resident of the Livingston District, my goal is to give back to my community through public service, like my grandfather, father, and uncle before me.
After 33 years of service in the Marine Corp, my grandfather, Lt. Col. Kerry Lane retired to Spotsylvania as a gentleman farmer at Post Oak Farm. With the help of my father, they raised black angus cattle as well as custom combining for other farms in our community.
My father, Mark Lane, served with the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Department first as a dispatcher, then deputy and finally retired after being a detective. My father was also instrumental in starting the first SWAT team for Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office. My Uncle (Jeff Lane) would spend his entire adult life serving the commonwealth as a Virginia State Trooper recently retiring at the rank of Lieutenant. Service to our country, neighbors and community were instilled in me at a very young age. Hard work, perseverance, and determination are all things I learned growing up on the farm, as well as looking out for your neighbors and community.
I have been appointed to and served on the Ag Forrestal Committee, Transportation Community and I am a sitting member of the planning commission. I have volunteered for numerous community outreach programs through my employer, Luckstone Corporation as well as volunteered with the Rappahannock Big Brothers. I now feel that it is time to try to really make a difference in our community by serving as the Livingston District representative for the Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors.
