John Whitbeck, candidate for Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, released his newest ad discussing his solutions for Loudoun’s transportation problems.
“We need a county government that isn’t afraid to get creative and address Loudoun’s traffic issues,” said Whitbeck.
Whitbeck outlined his “all-of-the-above” approach to reducing traffic congestion, which includes fighting for lower tolls, creating jobs in Loudoun to shorten commutes, investing in current and new infrastructure, and fully utilizing metro.
“A lot of politicians talk about traffic, but if you want someone who will deliver on their promises, then let’s get to work.”
Whitbeck has focused his campaign on issues like transportation, addressing Loudoun’s need for a leader who will fight for lower tolls and oppose the Greenway’s hopes for 36 more years of guaranteed annual toll hikes.
“Much of our traffic congestion stems from the Greenway’s high tolls that force drivers onto Waxpool Rd, Rt. 28 and other local roads,” said Whitbeck. “My all-of-the-above, infrastructure first approach to transportation will disperse traffic more evenly and get commuters to and from work quicker.”
Outside of tolls, development continues to occur without roads adequate to handle new traffic and without schools adequate to handle extra students. Whitbeck hopes to ensure that Loudoun’s infrastructure is more appropriate for the increasing population.
