Charlottesville City Councilor Wes Bellamy has been appointed chair of the political science department at Virginia State University.

“I get to lead a department that I love, spend time and influence young people daily, and more than anything doesn’t feel like’s love,” Bellamy wrote in an Instagram post.

Bellamy, who has taught at VSU while serving on City Council, will wrap up his only term on council this year after choosing not to seek re-election.
