Loudoun, First Responders hold one another as family. When one is lost, it impacts them all. Yesterday, the Baltimore Fire Department lost three Firefighters when a burning building partially collapsed on them. One other remains hospitalized.

Loudoun has one of the only IAFF PEER support teams with a clinician on staff. She was requested by IAFF to go to Baltimore to help the men and women of the BCFD.

Please join me on holding all of them and their families in our prayers.

Good morning Loudoun, on the day we've set aside to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I've decided to share rarely seen pictures and rarely quoted words from Dr. King.

Many people often share Dr. Kings one very well known quote from his speech at the "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom." However, in my opinion although powerful, that one quote does not give the full picture of who Dr. King was and repeating only one quote certainly doesn't grasp the complexity of Dr. King and all he was fighting for.

Dr. King would have been 93 today.

Loudoun, this picture is powerful to me so I thought I'd share.

It's Dr. King's open briefcase at the Lorraine Motel. This picture was taken after he was assassinated.

Sometimes it's easy to forget our great men/women in history were real people with fears, hopes & families. They had a favorite color, a least favorite food, maybe even a pet. We rightly remember them as icons, but may forget they were human

Anyway, the picture moved me, so I shared.

Loudoun, Senator John Bell has drafted and submitted a bill that would erode rights/responsibilities of local governing bodies to make our own land use decisions. If passed, this bill would force local bodies to disregard our Comprehensive Plan and Zoning regulations. The County BOS will strongly oppose this bill and any legislation that suppresses local authority.
SB255 bill language below.

SB 255 (Bell) Zoning; wireless communications infrastructure; application process. Provides that in its consideration of certain communications infrastructure applications, a locality shall not disapprove an application if (i) the proposed new structure provides additional wireless coverage or capacity for first responders or (ii) the proposed tower is not within a four-mile radius of an existing tower that is part of the applicant's network. Additional changes in the bill provide that a locality shall not be prohibited from disapproving certain applications for any zoning approval required for non-administrative review-eligible projects on the basis of the fact that the proposed height of any wireless support structure, wireless facility, or wireless support structure with attached wireless facilities exceeds 200 feet above ground level. Current law sets the limit at 50 feet above ground level.

Analysis: locality would not be able to deny a zoning approval for a wireless telecom facility if space is offered to public safety or the facility is 4 miles away from another facility. These factors may be considered but are not true land use considerations. The governing body would be required to approve such facilities even if it was contrary to its Comp Plan and Zoning. The legislation does not consider community opposition. This bill neglects the other aspects of these structures that that should be taken into consideration. Focusing solely on the added capacity for first responders and distance to nearest tower will limit the control of the localities to consider other problematic issues that might be grounds for disapproval. Item 1.A.12 could easily be be argued that all cellular sites could be used for F&R services. Item1.A.13 relates to the coverage of the network, which in Item 1.A.1 already states that the County cannot deny applications based on network coverage. Both Item 12 and 13 do not add any substance to the previously approved language.

Loudoun, despite being really cold, we were so pleased to cut the ribbon on the Leesburg bypass improvement project. This was a 4.4 million dollar project of which Loudoun contributed 3 million.

Decreasing traffic congestion improves the quality of life for Loudoun's citizens. I love ribbon cuttings. 😁

Today, we celebrated the completion of the Leesburg Bypass Improvement Project! We’d like to extend a thank you to everyone who attended to show their support, and to our CEO Renée N. Hamilton, Mayor Kelly Burk, Leesburg, Leesburg, Leesburg, Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chair Phyllis J. Randall, and Leesburg District Supervisor Kristen Umstattd, Leesburg, Leesburg for the wonderful remarks. Loudoun County Government Town of Leesburg, Virginia

Loudoun, seven years ago I talked first with my God, next with my husband and finally with my family. Together, we made the decision to seek the office of Chair at Large.

In my 7th year in office I still wake up thrilled to be Loudoun's Chair at Large. The office is humbling, challenging, interesting and awe inspiring. I feel so blessed to serve in this capacity.

Loudoun, as always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your County Chair.

Loudoun, I'm sure you're all aware we are expecting some wintery precipitation starting in the early morning hours. I've already been in contact with VDOT, they are ready to respond. Also, LCPS is on a two hour delay tomorrow morning.

I honestly can't recall hardly any snow last winter. This may be the first snow in quite a while. Be safe everyone.

Loudoun, over the past year I have discussed what I'm now calling "the second pandemic." I believe we have yet to see the mental health toll COVID will have on our Country, Commonwealth and County.

Going forward many will disagree about how COVID was politically handled. I believe Historians and Medical Ethicist will debate these issues for many years to come. However, today...right now we should prepare for the Mental/Behavior Heath impacts of COVID on Loudoun. Toward that end, additional Mental Health Fist Aid class dates have been scheduled throughout January. These classes cover topics such as:

》Adverse Childhood Experiences
》Mental health first
》Substance Use Disorders & Overdose
》Suicide Prevention.

The next virtual workshop will be held next Wednesday and Thursday, January 5 and 6, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. All programs are free, but registration is required, and seats are limited. To learn more about these training programs, view a complete schedule of upcoming sessions, and to register, visit: loudoun.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=7223&.
Thanks everyone

Loudoun, I have a request from our hospitals. If you are asymptomatic and have not been exposed to a person with COVID, please do not go to the hospital Emergency Room (ER) to get a COVID test. Of course continue to go to the ER for other medical issues/emergencies,
We are working on getting more test in Loudoun and will have another testing event on Thursday. Thanks everyone.

Loudoun, our COVID news is mixed. First, the bad news. Like the rest of the Commonwealth and Nation, Loudoun's COVID positivity number is much higher than we would like. In fact, yesterday's rate was almost 15%. In addition, Loudoun's level of community transmission is rated "high".

However, our vaccinations rates are also high. And although our emergency departments are full with people wanting COVID test, most are not being admitted. That is good news.

I am still waiting to receive current COVID hospitalizations numbers, from INOVA Loudoun and Stone Springs Hospitals. Stone Springs did send their COVID test numbers. Stone Springs reported a sharp increase in ER visits but not hospitalizations. Over the last 3 days they've done over 140 Covid tests, at least 60 were positive."

I will post current hospitalizations numbers as soon as I receive them.

Loudoun, well this is an interesting twist. Seems there were two time capsules buried in the base of the Confederate monument in Richmond. Another time capsule was found yesterday. This one is said to be the one historians were actually looking for. The one found last week was unexpected. The theory is the time capsule first located (last week) was placed there by people working to erect the monument, while the one found yesterday was actually the original time capsule.

The new capsule will be opened today at 1:00. It was already x-rayed by historians and curators. The historian rumor mill believes there is an original picture of Abraham Lincoln in this time capsule. We shall see.

To help address an increased demand for COVID-19 testing, #Loudoun County has added a second free testing event this week. The drive-thru testing events will be held Tuesday, December 28 and Thursday, December 30, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., at Philip A. Bolen Memorial Park in Leesburg. Details here: https://bit.ly/3mEbmLd
