Following a two month ad campaign informing voters about Chair Randall’s support for higher taxes, higher tolls, and a 62% pay raise, John Whitbeck, candidate for Chair of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, released a new campaign ad.
“Chair Randall’s record of higher taxes, higher tolls, and pay raises for politicians is wrong for Loudoun County” said Sarah Porter, Whitbeck for Chairman Spokeswoman.
The ad contrasts Randall’s record with Whitbeck’s platform.
Whitbeck has made fiscal responsibility a major focus for his campaign and has consistently campaigned for lower taxes and tolls, and for the principle that pay raises should be prioritized for teachers, not politicians.
“As the son of a teacher, I think Chair Randall’s 62% pay raise is a slap in the face to county employees, first responders, and teachers- many of whom can’t afford to live in the county they serve,” said Whitbeck.
Whitbeck’s ad also features comments from three other real Loudoun families of different backgrounds who volunteered to be in the ad.
“High taxes, high tolls, and pay raises for politicians are all issues that have a direct impact on the affordability of our county, and negatively affect Loudoun’s families,” said Porter. “County government should be looking for ways to make families’ lives easier, not harder.”
“I am very proud to be running a campaign that is laser-focused on the issues- not the divisive, partisan politics of the day,” said Whitbeck.
Whitbeck has made quality of life a driving force for his campaign, including issues of traffic, taxes, schools, and fiscal responsibility. In addition, Whitbeck has called for greater unity in our community, working to bring together people of all faiths, ethnicities, and political affiliations.
