       CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A University of Virginia survey shows a majority of residents in the Charlottesville area support changing laws that govern the appointment of the school's board members.
     Seventy-nine percent of the more than 1,000 residents who responded to the survey said they favor such changes.
     The telephone survey was conducted by U.Va.'s Center for Survey Research. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
     Charlottesville Delegate David J. Toscano said there's no doubt people want change. He says the question is what form it will take.
     He is preparing legislation that would strengthen the committee that vets proposed board appointees. His proposal also would change quorum requirements for boards to conduct major business.
