Share |

Gordonsville Mayor Robert K. Coiner will serve a year’s term as President-Elect of the Virginia Municipal League and then become its 97th President in October of 2016.


More than 200 of Virginia’s cities, towns and counties voted Coiner into office during the group’s annual conference held last week in Richmond. Coiner is the first mayor of Gordonsville to serve as VML President-Elect in the 110-year history of the League, and is also the first Mayor from Central Virginia. Gordonsville becomes the smallest locality in League history to produce a President-Elect.


Coiner, who currently serves as VAPDC’s First Vice President, is a former Chairman and current Executive Committee member of the Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission. Mayor Coiner has served on the Gordonsville Town Council since 2000 and been mayor since January of 2005. He has served on VML’s Executive Committee since 2009 and was appointed by Governor McAuliffe to his Transition Committee on Local Government in December of 2013.
