Fauquier’s school board Monday night selected a 30-year-old father and risk management specialist to fill the vacant Scott District seat on an interim basis.

Vincent E. “Vinny” Gallo will succeed Suzanne Sloane, who resigned Dec. 15 after six years on the board. Ms. Sloane and her husband moved to Harrisonburg.

The board interviewed 14 applicants behind closed doors from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Chairwoman Donna Grove (Cedar Run District) said.

“I saw the open call (for applicants), and local government is something I’ve always been interested in,” Mr. Gallo said in a brief phone conversation Monday night.

The father of two children in county schools, Mr. Gallo praised the work of the board and the staff.

“My background is in occupational safety and health,” he said. “Fauquier County has done a great job ensuring safety.”

But, no particular issue prompted him to seek the appointment, Mr. Gallo said. He pledged to focus on issues that constituents bring to the board.

“We had 14 impressive, passionate candidates,” Stephanie Litter-Reber (Lee) said before the board’s 4-0 vote to appoint Mr. Gallo. “This was not an easy decision.”

Mr. Gallo graduated from Riverbend High School in Spotsylvania County and Old Dominion University in Norfolk with a bachelor’s degree in health science in 2019.

He works as senior safety manager at CPG, a data center company in Ashburn. He has worked for state and local government as well as in the private sector.

After taking the oath of office, Mr. Gallo will join the board for its annual planning summit Wednesday at Marriott Ranch near Hume.

He will serve until the Nov. 8 special election, when Scott District voters will select a school board member to serve the balance of the four-year term through 2023.

Fauquier school board members earn annual stipends of $12,000. The chairman earns $14,000 and the vice chairman earns $13,300.
