Crawley named to deputy county manager position

Jane Crawley
Jane D. Crawley has been named Henrico's deputy county manager for community services, effective Sept. 8.

Crawley, who currently serves as director of the county’s Department of Social Services, will succeed George T. Drumwright Jr., who is retiring after more than 34 years in the position. County Manager Virgil Hazelett announced the appointment today.

The move continues an increase in diversity among Henrico's top appointed and elected officials. Crawley becomes the second African-American appointed this year to serve as one of five deputy county managers, following Tim Foster, who is the deputy county manager for community operations.

The Board of Supervisors also includes two African-American members: longtime Fairfield District Supervisor Frank Thornton and newly elected Varina District Supervisor Tyrone Nelson, whose term began in January.

One more vacancy will occur in the county's senior leadership when Deputy County Manager for Special Services Angela Harper retires officially later this year.

As deputy county manager for community services, Crawley will have direct responsibilities over Henrico Area Mental Health and Developmental Services, Social Services, the Henrico County Health Department, the Juvenile Detention Home and James River Juvenile Detention Center, the Community Corrections program and the Capital Region Workforce Partnership — agencies with combined budgets of more than $65 million and nearly 600 employees. Her portfolio also includes county programs and services funded by the Virginia Juvenile Community Crime Control Act.

Crawley began her Henrico career in 1991 as a casework supervisor in Social Services. She also worked as the department’s assistant director before being named director in January 2006.

A Richmond native, Crawley earned a bachelor’s degree in social work from Norfolk State University and received a master’s degree in public administration from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has served on the board of directors of Henrico Court Appointed Special Advocates and was appointed to the Virginia Child Fatality Review Team. She currently is a member of the Virginia League of Social Services Executives, the Child Welfare Advisory Committee and the Virginia Association of Local Human Services Administrators.
