Gregory L. Duncan Sr. was selected as the District 1 Director by the A&N Electric Cooperative Board, filling the seat held by the late Robert L. Nock.
The cooperative’s District 1 covers the areas of Virginia’s Eastern Shore from Parksley’s northern border to the Maryland/Virginia State line and includes Chincoteague, Tangier and Smith Island, which is located in Somerset County, Md.
Duncan, who lives near Mappsville, is the chief executive officer of GL Duncan LLC and deputy director of solid waste for the Accomack County Department of Public Works.
Duncan currently serves on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel Commission as secretary-treasurer.
He is also a former member of the Accomack County Board of supervisors.
He is a graduate of Atlantic High School in Oak Hall, attended the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore, and a graduate Course of Study at the Wesley Theological Seminary.
Duncan also is an ordained United Methodist minister, with pastorates having included Adams United Methodist Church, in Parksley, and House of Prayer U.M.C., in Bloxom.
The appointment does not fill the seat’s full term. Duncan must run for reelection at the cooperative’s next Annual Meeting.
