  • John F. (Jack) Herrity, 1976-1987

In addition, the Fairfax County History Commission will present a framed list of all chairmen serving from 1870 until present. 

Fairfax County’s urban county executive form of government was established in the 1960s. The new form of government required more stringent ethical and disclosure requirements and called for the chairman of the Board of Supervisors to be elected countywide, or “at-large.”
