Christopher P. Henzel was recently appointed and sworn in by the Fairfax Circuit Court as a member of the Fairfax County Electoral Board for a three-year term. He replaces Steve Hunt, whose term ended after serving eight years on the board.
In each county and city in Virginia, a three-member Electoral Board is responsible for the proper and orderly conduct of all elections held in their locality. The two other members of the Fairfax County Electoral Board are Katherine K. Hanley and Bettina M. Lawton.
Henzel served for 36 years in the U.S. foreign service, most recently as ambassador to Yemen. Since his retirement from the federal government, he consults for U.S. businesses working overseas, and he has served as an election officer and party poll watcher. Henzel is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross and the National War College.
