Loudoun, I'm having a wonderfully busy day as I just completed my second event of the day, the groundbreaking for the Sterling Community Center renovation. Sterling is one of Loudoun's oldest and beloved communities. I'm so pleased the much deserved renovations and revitalizations are coming to the Sterling Area.
Loudoun, please join me in congratulating the many Loudoun First Responders who serve in our Sheriff's Department on their promotions. Our First Responders are everyday heroes who deserve our respect and gratitude.
Loudoun, do you all have your power back?
If not, tell me where it's still out. Thanks

Funeral services for....

Middleburg, VA 20117
Loudoun, it's with a very heavy heart that I report that Mr. Albert Bland has passed away. Known as the "Mayor of St. Louis," Albert made a positive difference in the lives of so many, he will be missed. As details regarding services are made, I will share.
Loudoun, yesterday Vice Chair Koran Saines, County staff and Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) staff joined me in Richmond for the entire day. Meeting with our Loudoun GA Delegation as well as Assembly Leadership we advocated for Loudoun's Legislative Agenda. Such items included; Greenway Tolls, opposing local funding mandates and restoration of funds to (NVTA). As it relates to NVTA funding, unfortunately as it stands now any new money will be as a result of new taxes levied on Northern Virginians. I strongly oppose re-taxing NoVA residents and I'm requesting protective language as part of any new legislation. I will give a full readout including legislative history at our next BOS meeting. As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chair.
Loudoun, last night I was pleased to join the Mayor's from COLT (Coalition of Loudoun Towns) to discuss County/Town issues, how our Elected Bodies can together, work effectively and some of their concerns.
Thank you to Leesburg Mayor Kelly Burk, Purceville Mayor Kwasi Fraser, Middleburg Mayor Bridge Littleton, Lovettsville Mayor Nate Fontaine, Hamilton Mayor David Simpson, Round Hill Mayor Scott Ramsey and Hillsboro Mayor Roger Vance. I also appreciate Supervisors Mike Turner, Caleb Kershner and Kristen Umstattd for joining us.
Loudoun, please join me in thanking everyone who helped plan today's MLK march and program. I've been going to this march for over 15 years, I believe today's may have been the largest ever. Great job Tammy Carter and the full MLK Committee.
Good morning Loudoun, enjoy this day of service. As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chair.
Loudoun, as always the Annual Lift Every Voice Choir Festival honoring the legendary Dr. MLK was a wonderful event. Thank you to the Loudoun Chorale, and Festival Director Max Nolin for bringing the County together to make a joyful noise.
Loudoun, on a foggy morning I'm told headlights, but NOT bright lights should be on. Drive slower. Stay safe everyone.
Loudoun, this afternoon I attended such an important event "Learning While Black" consisted of panels of current and former LCPS Students. They discussed their experiences and difficulties being a black student in LCPS. The panels talked at length about the importance of their parents/families staying involved in their education. In addition, discussed were topics such as not having enough (or in some cases any) Black teachers or administrators, (students) being told they are "acting white" when they take upper level classes and teachers not calling on them in class when they know the answers.
Loudoun, please join me in Congratulating our two new State representatives, Senator John Bell and Delegate Suhas Subramanyum as they began their General Assembly session. Also, Virginia welcomes Eileen Filler Corn as Speaker of the House and my good friend Charniele Herring as Majority Leader and Todd Gilbert as Minority Leader.
Loudoun, LCPS are closed today. As I hear of untreated VDOT maintained roads, I will contact VDOT. However, many untreated neighborhoods roads are HOA maintained. Please drive with extreme caution.
Due to inclement weather, Loudoun County Employees will be on liberal leave beginning at 12:00 p.m on Tuesday January 7th. The Board of Supervisors will hold our meeting this evening at 5:00.
Pleased to witness the swearing in Ceremony for the new Loudoun County School Board.

Loudoun I look forward to working with new and returning School Board colleagues. Thank you all for your service.
Loudoun, let me say this, as a Christian, as an Elected Official and as a decent human being I'm standing strong with my brother's and sisters of the Jewish Faith.
To all who are observing, I wish you a happy and fruitful Kwanzaa

Loudoun, last night the 2016 Loudoun County Board of Supervisors held our last meeting of the term. We were not a perfect board, and I'm certainly not a perfect Chair; but we were a extremely productive, collegial body. I'm very proud of what, together, and with your input, we accomplished. Please join me in wishing my colleagues who are leaving all the best in their future endeavors and thank them for their service. As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chair.
Loudoun County Schools are closed today, Loudoun County Government is open. The roads are being treated, however please allow extra travel time and please be proceed carefully.
Loudoun, after checking various weather reports I admit I've no idea what's supposed to happen tomorrow. 🤷🏽♀️ It's possible we will get some inclement weather...act accordingly.
Loudoun, next year I will assume the role as Corporate President on the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG). I will provide monthly updates at our BOS meeting. As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chair
Loudoun, recently the BOS voted to add money to our district budgets. Currently the budget for the Office of the Chair is $198 thousand dollars. That amount covers the salaries of my 2 1/4 employees, travel (to include: plane fares, gas, tolls, etc.), office supplies, digital equipment, postage, copying and various other things. After January 1st my office budget will increase by $85 thousand dollars. The breakdown on that increase is as follows:
$50 Thousand...one new staff member, her title will be...Legislative Aid for Behavioral and Community Health
$25 Thousand...divided among my staff for pay increases and to cover my current 1/4 staff to become a 1/2 staff. Supervisor's staff do not receive automatic annual pay adjustments like County staff. In order for their pay to increase we have to increase our district budgets. My staff works hard, and often long hours. They are public servants and they should be fairly compensated. After January 1st I will have 3 1/2 members on my staff.
$7 Thousand...to refresh or purchase new computers equipment and cell phones for staff.
$3 Thousand...for increased staff cost (travel, copying, supplies etc.)
Having said that, Loudoun please help me welcome Sarah Tuggle to my staff. Her start day will be January 6th. And let's welcome back Jeanine Arnett as my returning Chief of Staff. Thank you
I love being Chair everyday, but some days I REALLY LOVE being Chair. His smile...❤
Reid said his sleep has improved significantly. He no longer has to wake up early to boil water, drop wood in the stove to keep the house warm or use the bathroom in an outhouse.
Living in a temporary accessory unit or trailer home isn't too common in affluent Loudoun County.
Loudoun, today I'm spending my day with hundreds of confident, beautiful, passionate, powerful women at the Virginia Women's Business Conference. The brain child of Tina Johnson, the VWBC is in its 11th year. This year's conference theme..."Imagine the Possibilities."
Loudoun, a Children's Science Center in Loudoun will be an enormous asset to not just our County, but the entire region. We are fortunate that so many have come together to make this vision a reality. We still have a long way to go but as of now we're on track to start design. The next step will be to discuss permanent exhibits. What better place for a new Children's Science Center to call home?
A planned science center in Northern Virginia is getting a $10 million donation to jump-start its construction.
Loudoun, I am recieving inquiries about a shooting in Lovettsville. What's important to know is that currently there is no ongoing danger to the public. I will post more information as I receive it. Thank you
