Final 8 hours of 2011
Dec. 31 2011

What a great year.

The old supervisors leave office at midnight tonight. Who were they? I salute them and bid them farewell and goodbye as we end the year.

Jim Burton, we had disagreements and when we agreed the earth shook and people fell out of their seats but it did happen a couple of times.

Sally Kurtz, had a party saluting her for her years Thursday night and was always direct. I sat with both Sally and Jim for the past four years and they helped me and Sterling.

Andrea McGimsey devoted herself to energy effeciency and bike and pedestrian paths among other concerns.

Kelly Burk recognized a community leader every meeting and was the most devoted to her job as supervisor of all supervisors.

Stevens Miller had energy and spoke very quickly at every meeting-- he might start out slow but quickly ramped up to hundreds of words a minute.

Susan Buckley was vice-chairman and balanced and fair most of the time.

All six liberals leave office tonight along with Lori Waters, a conservative Republican who leaves for Florida for a new opportunity with her family. Thats 7 experienced supervisors leaving tonight as their term ends.

On Tuesday we have our first meeting and Loudoun County will experience a great period of revitalization and a determined break with past liberal policies.
