There are myriad reasons to vote for Kelly Burk on November 6th. Here are four specific, concrete things she has done for Leesburg while on the Town Council.
I. Battlefield Parkway - Kelly was instrumental in getting the funding and planning done for the completion of Battlefield Parkway, in spite of many hurdles raised by the county, state and others. She saw a problem, and solved it from her position on the Town Council.
II. Town/County Water Rate Commission - While many have been grandstanding over the issue of water rates charged by the town to people just outside of town, Kelly Burk and the Town Council took the lead to look for a solution that would satisfy all parties. This is the kind of practical problem solving we need when dealing with issues like school construction.
III. Keep Leesburg Beautiful - This is the perfect example of a win-win. With this effort, Leesburg residents get out, get together and clean up the town. In doing so, ties to, and within, the community deepen without any extra expenditure of town money. In spearheading this effort Kelly Burk proved her excellent stewardship of the town and its money.
IV. Tuscarora Watershed Grant - Tuscarora Creek is a critical watershed for Leesburg. As Loudoun grows, the care and maintenance of our watersheds will be more and more important. On the Town Council, Kelly Burk has shown the long-term perspective on conservation issues necessary to manage Loudoun's scarce natural resources such as Goose Creek.
In her time on the Town Council, Kelly Burk has shown practical leadership on the issues important to the citizens. She has worked together with a variety of citizens, businesses and organizations to solve problems. This is the representation Leesburg deserves on the Board of Supervisors.
