John's Focus

John is running to deliver results to the people of Loudoun. Learn more about John’s focus and the issues below.

SOLVE OUR TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS

John launched his campaign after the incumbent chair voted for guaranteed toll hikes through 2056 on the Greenway. As Chair, John will be an advocate for lower tolls as well as alternatives to the Greenway and Rt. 50.

He will also incentivize other means of transportation. The expansion of Metro and a new housing strategy will provide opportunities for us to take cars off our roads, reducing commute times and solving our transportation problems.

KEEP TAXES LOW

Loudoun enjoys a lower tax rate than both Fairfax and Prince William County. John will advocate for fiscally responsible and efficient government. As Chair, he will refuse pay raises and fight for lower taxes.

PRIORITIZE SCHOOL SAFETY WITH ACTION

One of John’s first goals as chairman will be to expand Loudoun’s nationally recognized School Resource Officer (SRO) program to include our elementary schools. The SRO program in Loudoun has been effective in not only protecting our schools, but also fostering a positive relationship between the Sheriff’s Office and our students.

STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT THAT IMPROVES OUR QUALITY OF LIFE

Loudoun desperately needs a development strategy that provides housing for citizens from entry level to retirement and preserves rural west. John is committed to affordable housing having first lived in an Affordable Dwelling Unit in Sterling when he moved to Loudoun.

“My plan for strategic development will help those who work in Loudoun afford to live here, including our teachers, deputies, firefighters, single mothers and young families” -John Whitbeck

We also need to make use of our existing infrastructure like roads, sewers, and more to avoid new infrastructure costs.

John’s plan offers a path to preserving our open space and rural economy in the west. Western Loudoun is a tourist destination we cannot lose to careless, sprawling development.

PROTECTING LOUDOUN’S FUTURE

John has spent 20 years as an attorney and small business owner in Loudoun County. He and his wife have three daughters, ages 13, 8, and 5, who attend Loudoun County Public Schools. John will be a locally-focused Chairman who gets results.
