LANSDOWNE, VA – Calling for lower Greenway tolls and better leadership to protect Loudoun’s future, John Whitbeck today announced his candidacy for Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. Whitbeck will run as a challenger to Democrat Phyllis Randall in November.
“I want to be a Chairman who puts Loudoun County first and gets results,” said Whitbeck.
“That means fighting a war on traffic, having a real strategy for housing and development, preserving our rural west, keeping taxes low, and committing to strong and safe public schools. Our campaign will be about the quality of life issues that matter to Loudoun residents, not the angry partisan politics that have divided us for too long.”
“Among other things, the recent vote by the incumbent Chair to side with the owners of the Greenway to guarantee toll increases every year convinced me that Loudoun’s leadership is completely off track and motivated me to run for Chair.”
“Most of my adult life has been spent in Loudoun raising a family, building my business, and working in the community as a family and mental health attorney. My children were born in Loudoun and attend Loudoun County Public Schools. My wife Laura and I are so blessed with the life we have in Loudoun County and she has been my strongest supporter when it comes to giving back to this great community through public service.”
“It would be my honor and privilege to serve as Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. It is my intention to focus my efforts locally and achieve first-rate results to protect Loudoun’s future.”
