Loudoun Supervisors Say Goodbyes at Term’s Final Meeting

By STAFF REPORT, Loudoun Now

County supervisors reflected on their past four years of service during the final meeting of their term Dec. 17. Four of the nine supervisors will not be returning in 2020. County Chairwoman Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large) lifted the normal time limits to let those members say their public goodbyes. Most remarked on the cooperative spirit of the board, despite differences in political party. Vice Chairman Ralph M. Buona (R-Ashburn), who chose not to run again, had tallied approximately the number of meetings he attended as a county supervisor.

Democrat Phyllis J. Randall’s surprise victory four years ago — in an unusual three-way race — made her the first African American to chair Loudoun County’s Board of Supervisors. Now, Randall is working to build on that success and turn the country’s wealthiest county into a more active voice on issues such as gun violence, climate change and women’s rights, drawing on Loudoun’s growing diversity, frustration over recent racist incidents in schools and opposition to President Trump. Randall, 54, faces a tough reelection battle against Republican John C. Whitbeck.
