Charles Green has served as the Deputy Commissioner with the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (VDACS) since 2014.  In this role, he has been responsible for the day-to-day operations of one of Virginia’s oldest agencies.  The Department is located within the Governor's Secretariat of Agriculture and Forestry and has both economic development and regulatory responsibilities under state law.  VDACS was established in 1877 and is responsible for administering over 60 laws and more than 70 regulations relating to agriculture and consumer protection.
