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 Angie Plowman gave notice in November of her intent to step down this month. She cited an 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 Administrator Martha Mason Semmes said four candidates have applied for consideration. She, Mayor Betsy Davis and Vice Mayor Darleen Kirk reviewed them over the weekend.
Davis said interviews would start at the beginning of the year so the new attorney would be in place by the end of the month, or early in February. The appointment will be made by a vote of the full Town Council.
Davis thanked Plowman for her service. “She worked hard, and we trusted her decisions and advice,” she said.
Semmes also praised Plowman. “She’s been a very effective advocate for the town, handling a wide variety of legal affairs for the town. She has always been very accessible and helpful.”
