Grim May Leave Purcellville Council

Purcellville Councilwoman Kelli Grim announced Tuesday that she may have to step down at the end of the month.

“Our family is faced with the situation of a job reassignment … that will likely result in our relocating out of state,” she said. “I would believe that at the end of this month may be the end of my term here in Purcellville.”

Grim made the announcement at the end of Tuesday night’s council meeting, catching Mayor Kwasi Fraser off guard.

“That is a painful surprise,” Fraser said.

Grim said she would keep her colleagues and the town staff apprised of her situation.

“I’ve tried to do all the good I could while I was here,” she said. “I’ll give you my to-do list before I go – it’s a big one.”

After years of citizen advocacy, Grim was elected to town council in a special election to fill a vacant seat in May 2016. Her term expires June 30, 2018.

    This is good news for Purcellville. She has been the most divisive wacko on that council, just as wacked out as Karen Jimmerson. Both of them instigated the firing of Bob Lohr, which led to Danny Davis leaving and now the police chief has been fired. For years, she and that Valerie Joyner ran the Blue Ridge Leader as opposition to Bob Lazaro, Janet Clark and others they did not like. Hope for the citizens of your new home town that you do not run for office there. Good riddance!
