About William "Bill "Gandel ...
"Bill" Gandel completed his service to local government with 40 years total of employment on February 1, 2011, which included seven years of local government employment with the County of Henrico and the City of Petersburg.  During his tenure in Prince George, Gandel saw much change and instituted many innovative programs and ideas to respond to the needs of County citizens. Also, as Director of Social Services for 33 years, he maintained the Prince George Social Services Department as an exceptionally efficient organization. “Bill Gandel has led this agency through some of the most difficult economic times in our history and has managed to fulfill all obligations and requirements in a professional and humanitarian manner,” said County Administrator John G. Kines, Jr. 

Gandel also served from 2005 to 2008 as a member of the Virginia Civil Admissions Advisory Council, a group organized to study Virginia emergency custody, temporary detention, admissions, and involuntary inpatient treatment of persons with mental illnesses and make recommendations to the Governor and General Assembly. He was appointed by both Governors Mark Warner and Tim Kaine to this body of Statewide experts in the Social Services field. 

Bill Gandel has played a significant role in the establishment of several key Countywide programs. He played a leading role in the establishment of the Prince George County Food Bank. More than 30 years ago, he helped start the first food bank in the region that was used as a model for nearby communities. In the early 1980s, the National Association of Counties awarded Prince George County an Outstanding Service Award for establishing the County food bank.
