Bill Serves ALL Residents of Herndon

It is truly amazing that my first term is coming to an end.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve on Town Council and I hope in that time I have proven myself to be not only effective but also open to listening to anyone and everyone to better understand and serve the people of Herndon.

I am choosing to run for re-election because the work I set out to do is not done.  Each one of my accomplishments below is clickable to show you what was done.  I have kept my campaign promises which included:

1)  Downtown Development 

2)  Improvements to Infrastructure 

3)  Worked with majority of Town Council NOT raise tax rate for FY2019 on businesses or residents

4)  As a true advocate of our children, Created Herndon Youth Advisory Council so young adults concerns can be heard

5) As a true advocate of senior citizens, I am a board member of the Herndon Village Network, and will continue to work hard for our senior community for affordable housing, transportation and support networks so they can age in place

6) Proactive on social media regarding events, need to knows and emergencies within the Town Of Herndon

7)  Continuing to Work with Staff, Local, County, State and Federal Leaders to move the Metro Silver Line forward

8)  Worked with Mayor Lisa Merkel, Council and Staff to save thousands in tax payer dollars with my expert knowledge of retirement and benefits packages 

9)  Worked with Mayor and Council to preserve historic sites within the Town of Herndon recognizing the town's unique culture and history (i.e. The Carroll House)

10)  Worked with Mayor Lisa Merkel and Council to secure New Town Manager for seamless transition for citizens and staff 

11)  Selected by my peers statewide to serve on General Laws Committee of the Virginia Municipal League. 

12)  When things looked in doubt, I worked with Wayne Kidwell American Legion Post 184, Mayor Lisa Merkel, Town Staff, Fairfax County Fire, Jimmy's Old Town Tavern, Richard Sawkins and many good people in Herndon to continue to honor our nations bravest, our veterans, Memorial Day Weekend this year.

I call Herndon, "4.2 Square Miles of Endless Possibilities" because I truly believe we live in a special and amazing place.  I hope to earn your vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

One of the unique aspects in the downtown area is the 1949 Class 8 center style cupola caboose, brought to the Town of Herndon by the Herndon Historical Society and was dedicated in a ceremony on April 21, 1990. A plaque honoring resident George Moore's efforts was placed in his honor on the caboose in 2003
