Two candidates have filed to run against Republican incumbent Geary Higgins for Catoctin District Supervisor. The Supervisor has also filed for re-election.[read_more]
Dallas Nash, President of Raspberry Falls HOA, filed on Friday as an Independent. Two days later he had a conversion, became a Republican and filed to run as a Republican.
As everyone in Loudoun has heard, and heard, and heard, Raspberry Falls has had ongoing water problems which Supervisor Higgins has worked hard to resolve. Supervisor Higgins was successful in his efforts and Loudoun Water Board voted unanimously to fund a replacement water system that will support both the Raspberry Falls and Selma Estates communities. The majority of people in Raspberry Falls have been very appreciative of Supervisor Higgins efforts and the outcome that he facilitated. It seems Mr.Nash is the exception.
Republicans in Loudoun will attend a convention on May 2nd to nominate our candidates for office. Since Mr. Nash has been a Republican for such a short time, and has never been active in the party, it is extremely unlikely that he will prevail against the popular, conservative, Republican Supervisor Geary Higgins.
Also challenging the well liked Supervisor is democrat Craig Green, a member of the Hamilton Town council. Craig Green was well known around Hamilton in 2004 for his “Bush Lied” sign prominently on display in his front yard on Colonial Highway (business route 7), the main street of Hamilton. A successful write-in campaign in Hamilton in 2008 cost Green his election but he was successful in a write-in campaign in 2014. (A seat on the Town Council in Hamilton can be won with less than 40 votes. It’s a very small town.)
In 2011 candidate Higgins won every precinct in the Catoctin District. Since his election he has worked hard for the citizens of Catoctin district and he will work hard to represent us again. I have no doubt that he will be successful.
