In an announcement that came as a surprise to many in Loudoun County, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, Scott York, will run next year for his 5th term in office. Â It had been widely rumored that Scott York would not run for re-election.
In 2011 Scott York was endorsed by Loudoun Republicans by a razor thin margin of 47 votes against conservative Steve Stockman. Â York went on to easily beat democrat Thomas Bellanca, 64% to 35%. Â In his 3 prior runs for chairman, York ran as an independent. Â In 2015 York will need to run again as an Independent because it is highly unlikely he will be endorsed by Loudoun Republicans. Â With his push for metro, and his attacks on some of other republican board members, York has not been popular with Republicans in Loudoun. Â In 2015 there will be no hug for Scott York from Loudoun Republicans.
