Steven G. Hudgins Appointed Deputy County Administrator
King William County’s County Administrator, Percy Ashcraft, has announced that, effective immediately, Steve Hudgins has been appointed as the County’s Deputy County Administrator.
Mr. Hudgins has worked with King William County since September 2014, starting as a Plans Reviewer II and later becoming Director of Operations & Building Official. Most recently, he served as Interim County Administrator for almost 10 months.
“I am very pleased to make this appointment,” Mr. Ashcraft said. “Steve has been part of all the major projects County Government is tackling right now. His leadership was critical in leading operations during the interim period.”
Ashcraft also emphasized that “Steve has broad knowledge of every aspect within our government. He has worked hard to learn how to apply that knowledge toward the successful completion of programs and projects.”
Mr. Hudgins played a key role in applying for and securing a $5.4 million state broadband grant which was announced by Governor Northam on December 13th. This grant will be the catalyst for expansion of fiber-to-home broadband throughout King William County. Mr. Hudgins was also integral in facilitating Nestle Purina’s $182 million investment expanding operations in the County, as announced by the governor in June. Nestle’s expansion will enlarge King William’s tax base and guarantee jobs in the County for years to come.
Mr. Hudgins earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture from Virginia Tech and was also valedictorian of his class at Mathews High School. He and his family reside in King William County.
