Tom Bellanca of Aldie has entered the race for Chairman of the Board of Supervisors in Loudoun county as an Independent. Bellanca challenged incumbent Scott York in 2011 as a Democrat. Bellanca was raised as the son of a physician in Navy and is a well respected Democrat in Loudoun County. [read_more]
Also in this race is Democrat Phyllis Randall, a therapist in Loudoun. Randall has garnered some opposition in the Democrat party of Loudoun for her anti-immigration views.
Republicans have nominated well known local attorney Charles King to run for Chairman of the Board. King is well respected in Loudoun and has been active in Republican politics for decades.
The Republicans need to deal with their bad reputation. This board hired Leo Rogers, arrested for domestic assault and failed to call for Shawn Williams to resign after light was shone on his conduct. Rogers and Middaugh, two new county employees, hired by this board, have been personally slapped with a 75 million dollar RICO lawsuit. I would expect that the board was told that this RICO suit was forthcoming, but overlooked the circumstances and behavior leading to the suit.
