Letter: Mayor Kwasi Fraser, Purcellville

Editor: Last weekend we witnessed what vision, creativity, and coordination can produce. The success of the painted barrel project/auction is further validation that vision often precedes provision.

We thank Michael Oaks for his vision and strategic planning in advancing this project. With minimal taxpayers’ financing, this project raised over $35,000 in a single setting.

We thank the artists and the Purcellville Art Council for their selfless commitment in producing the finished products that promoted our businesses as well as Purcellville and western Loudoun county art.

We also thank the members of our Economic Development Advisory Committee for their coordination in successfully advancing this project. With this successful effort, EDAC has provided us with a model for creativity, visioning, planning, and implementation that we will utilize for future projects.

Mayor Kwasi Fraser, Purcellville
