The Town of Leesburg is a growing, vibrant community. With growth comes challenges. As a 41 year resident of Leesburg, the welfare and happiness of our community and the economic health of Leesburg are things I take seriously. Service as a town councilperson, Leesburg district supervisor, and the mayor has prepared me to deal effectively, openly, and responsibly with the challenges that arise.

Through public service, I have learned our government works best when citizens, like you, are involved, informed, and participate. Listening to residents, gathering their perspectives, and considering directions my fellow citizens wish to go is what my role is all about.

My vision as mayor is to positively affect the people and businesses of the Town of Leesburg, working collaboratively with you with visibility and accountability. It has been my honor to work with and get to know so many of you over the years. Your involvement and views on important matters have been valuable to me and integral to our community’s development. I thank you for your participation and civic commitment.

My devotion to Leesburg drives my desire to continue to represent and serve. Leesburg persevered well during the pandemic due to strong leadership and decisive decision-making. As a result, I feel I have a unique perspective on issues that have shaped our Town. We have accomplished a lot over the last few years, and there is more to be done to continue that momentum!

Council hosted a roundtable work session to discuss how the town could work with the museum once it reopens. “You can get to a point where a museum is good enough, and I think that Loudoun County wisely, in conjunction with the town, decided that what was good enough is not good enough anymore,” said … read more

  • The long walk to downtown Leesburg from public parking lots could become a quick golf cart ride. Leesburg Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to initiate a staff study about how and where the town might allow golf carts on public streets.
