14. James J.L. Stegmaier 

Chesterfield County Administrator

A numbers guy, Chesterfield County Administrator Jay Stegmaier deserves much of the credit for the county’s improving fortunes, which include a multimillion-dollar budget surplus and sustained AAA bond rating. Through his participation in groups such as the Capital Regional Collaborative, the unassuming and accessible Stegmaier has shaken Chesterfield’s old go-it-alone reputation. Unlike his counterpart in Henrico (No. 4), Stegmaier hasn’t yet managed to pull the Board of Supervisors completely into the 21st century, but the proposed countywide plan — if it ever comes to a vote — addresses sprawl and brings a little new urbanist thinking to the table.
