Today, Leesburg civic activist and former Treasurer candidate Evan Macbeth formally announced his intention to run for a seat on the Leesburg Town Council in November.
"Leesburg is a growing, diverse community that exemplifies where Loudoun, and America, is going. We are a destination for families and young adults and have a responsibility to ensure that our government is there for those that made Leesburg great, even as we welcome those new to our Town,” says Macbeth.
A husband and father of two, Macbeth and his wife both work for companies based here in Loudoun County. Their children attend Loudoun County public schools. Since moving to Leesburg in 2006, Evan has been active in the local community as a member, and former Chair, of the Loudoun Democrats and has served on the Virginia Joint Commission on Technology and Science as well as the Leesburg Technology and Communications Commission. Evan was an Elector for President Obama from Virginia's 10th Congressional District in 2012.
Evan holds a BA from The University of Virginia and an MA from The George Washington University. He has worked as an analyst, project manager, program manager, and department director at systems and technology companies here in northern Virginia.
“The work of Council is the work of the public, from improving our traffic on the Bypass, to ensuring that downtown development is handled with a keen eye towards the fundamental character of our town. We can and should work together to continue building our amazing community.”
“I look forward to talking to my neighbors on every street in Leesburg about who we are as a Town and where we should take our community in the future."
Friends of Evan Macbeth will host a campaign kickoff cookout and fundraiser at the Billy Cox Pavilion (adjacent to Rust Library) on Sunday, May 15th, starting at 3pm.
