On March 8, 2013, Dumler reported to the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail to spend his first weekend in jail. However, Dumler resigned shortly thereafter, explaining that he had been holding out for the petition's dismissal because he didn't want to give it "the appearance of validity." He ran against James C. Three weeks after announcing his candidacy for the position on June 11, 2011, Dumler raised over ,000, out-raising his opponent 10:1, from over 85 individual donors, becoming the supervisor candidate with the highest number of donors.
Earl Smith’s best-known foray into civic engagement came in 2013 when former Scottsville supervisor Chris Dumler was convicted of misdemeanor sexual battery—and refused to resign from the Board of Supervisors while spending weekends in jail. “We have so many Facebook warriors who yell and scream about it,” says Smith, who announced his candidacy for the Board of Supervisors June 23.
“If I say I’m going to do something, I do it,” says Smith, 51. “Everybody I meet is so happy to have someone who grew up here and knows the area, not someone who moved here 10 years ago,” says Smith.
Now the district manager for a local frozen custard firm, Smith has worked for Subway, Miss Utility and the former Boudreau’s restaurant, and he owned his own restaurant, Firehouse Bar and Grill on Preston Avenue.
