BOS Names Daniel Whitten New County Attorney
Prince George, VA – The Board of Supervisors at its meeting August 13 unanimously supported Daniel Whitten to be the next County Attorney.
Whitten, 36, replaces Steve Micas, who retired August 1. He was the successful candidate among 11 applicants for the position.
Whitten is currently the County Attorney in Warren County and he and his family live in Front Royal. He is a graduate of the William & Mary School of Law and received his undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia.
“We are very pleased to be able to appoint Mr. Whitten to this very important County position,” commented Donald Hunter, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “His approach to public service is exactly what we are looking for in our County Attorney. He has excellent credentials. He has broad local government experience that easily prepares him for the challenges facing our government operations on a daily basis. We expect the transition to be a smooth one.”
The County Attorney is one of three positions that report directly to the Board of Supervisors, the other two being the County Administrator and County Clerk. Whitten will begin his service on September 16 at a salary of $117,300.
