Editor:   When I first ran for Sterling Supervisor, I ran a clean campaign that was focused on bringing real representation back to Sterling District. Sterling is my home, and our community rallied behind our shared commitment to create real, meaningful change—and we won. Since then, we’ve secured major investments in our community’s schools and in transportation, and I’ve fought bad community developments to ensure smart, equitable growth. Now, I’m running for re-election because we need to keep Sterling moving forward. I’m the only candidate in the race who’s a graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools, and I’ve worked to deliver real results for our education system. I’ve secured $166,000 for after-school programs for Sterling Middle School, and I worked to improve teacher pay so we can recruit and retain the best teachers. Nothing predicts the future than the past, and I have a proven record on delivering real results for our school district. Developing our infrastructure, and making sure that we have safe roads is a priority of mine on the Board of Supervisors. Augusta Drive, Jennings Farm Road, and West Poplar Road have improved safety for motorists and pedestrians, and we secured $7.8 million for the W&OD trail bridge in the County Capital Improvement Program. I have a proven record on transportation and have shown that I can work across party lines to improve the quality of life and safety of everyone in Sterling. I stood up to storage centers and fought against unwanted projects in Sterling. I advocated for Sterling to be designated an Opportunity Zone to promote quality economic growth. As Supervisor, I fought to secure funding for a neighborhood park, which will include a pool, for Sterling Park residents. We’ve made great strides, but we still have miles to go. I know I can continue to deliver results for Sterling, and that’s why I’m asking you to join me in this fight and support my re-election campaign. Together, we can keep Sterling moving forward.
