Middleburg Seeks New Town Attorney

The Middleburg Town Council is reviewing candidates to fill the town attorney post that will fall vacant at the end of the year.

Town Attorney Angela Plowman gave notice in November of her intention to leave the town’s employment this month. She cited increasing workload with her private sector clients and the need to spend more time outside Loudoun County.

Plowman, the wife of Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman, has served as Middleburg’s town attorney since 2012.

Town Manager Martha Mason Semmes said four proposals have been received and she, Mayor Betsy Davis and Vice Mayor Darleen Kirk will be reviewing them over the weekend. The appointment will be made by a vote of the full Town Council.

“We would hope to have someone on board by the end of January or early February,” she said.

Semmes said Plowman served the town well during her tenure.

“She’s been a very effective advocate for the town, handling a wide variety of legal affairs for the town, as well as contractual issues. She has always been very accessible and helpful,” she said.
