Ram Venkatachalam, Chair of Loudoun’s Transit Advisory Board and a 14-year resident of Brambleton, has announced his run for the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to represent the new Little River District.
Little River was created this year following the decennial US Census and redistricting. It is mainly comprised of the eastern portion of what was Blue Ridge District – including the communities of Aldie, Brambleton, Willowsford, and greater Middleburg.
“The Supervisor from Little River should be representative not only of the district, but also the best interests of everyone in Loudoun County,” said Venkatachalam, “and I am that candidate.”
“I am committed to the core purposes of local government, including economic development, education, public safety, and transportation,” Venkatachalam said, “and to keeping taxes down while improving our quality of life.”
“Common sense solutions should be the focus of our local Board,” Venkatachalam said, “not getting wrapped up in divisive social issues and national agendas that have no place in Loudoun. I will have more to say about all of this, and expect Little River voters to have a clear choice next November.”
Venkatachalam will seek the Republican nomination which is likely to be decided next spring. No other candidate has announced as a Republican at this time, while two Democrats have already announced.
Venkatachalam, 42, works for Deloitte as an IT consultant. He and his wife, Seetha, have two children in public elementary school. His community service includes an appointment to the Transit Advisory Board 2017, and election as its chair in 2020. His past service to the community includes Resident Vice President and Director of the Brambleton HOA, and as a Loudoun County election officer.
