In case you missed it, Evan kicked off his campaign for Town Council this past Sunday with an old-fashioned cookout at Ida Lee Park. Local folks came out with their families to enjoy a hot dog and hear how Evan will work hard to make Leesburg even better once he’s elected to Town Council.
While the kids climbed trees, flew kites and played nearby, Evan shared his reasons to run for Leesburg Town Council.
“Leesburg is the hometown Abbe and I chose when we moved to northern Virginia 10 years ago. It's where we wanted to have a family and raise our kids. It's a hometown where people can be born, grow up, go to school, find a job, and retire, and we need to work to make it that way for everyone.”
It’s true, the hometown feeling and experience are what make Leesburg great. The challenge is to make this an opportunity for all residents. Evan believes that forging connections between neighbors and neighborhoods, especially those who might feel disconnected from their Town and community, is crucial to Leesburg’s continued success.
Senator Jennifer Wexton and Supervisor Kristen Umstattd were there to add their support and insight. Both expressed confidence in Evan as a local leader who will be an asset to Leesburg as a Town Council Member. Senator Wexton praised Evan’s energy and knowledge on local issues; Supervisor Umstattd showed appreciation for his concern with the Town’s financial strength and fiscal matters. Mayor Dave Butler, Vice Mayor Kelly Burk, School Board Member Tom Marshall, and Town Council Candidate Gwen Pangle were also in attendance.
