Regional Commission Adopts Resolution Honoring John Coates
At its October 24th meeting, the Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission adopted a Resolution Honoring the Life and Service of John Coates, who sadly passed away on September 14, 2018.  Mr. Coates served as a Citizen representative to the Commission from Culpeper County for more than six years, beginning his term in January 2012 until the time of his passing, and was a valued member of the Commission, Culpeper County, and Rappahannock-Rapidan region communities.  He also was the recipient of the 2016 RRRC Regional Distinguished Leadership Government Award.

Mr. Coates' passion for the region, commitment to service to the community, depth of knowledge and memory about the region, and his jovial demeanor will be greatly missed by his fellow colleagues and the staff at the Regional Commission.
