County Chairwoman Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large) has been named to governor-elect Ralph Northam’s transition committee.
Northam made the announcement in Richmond on Tuesday. She joins Sen. Barbara A. Favola (D-31) as one of two Loudoun-elected officials on the transition committee. Its members make appointments and help the governor-elect make his cabinet appointments and craft the first policy positions for his time in office.
“This opportunity allows for priorities and concerns of Loudoun citizens to be brought to the forefront of the new Administration,” Randall said in a statement. “In Loudoun County we strive to maintain a high quality of life and create a place where residents are proud to live, work, learn and play. I will represent these values on the transition committee.”
“This bipartisan group of community leaders reflects the diversity that makes our Commonwealth a wonderful and inclusive place to live,” Northam said. “I am honored to have the help of such a great group of Virginians as we build an administration that reflects Virginia and takes our Commonwealth to the next level. We have a tremendous opportunity over the next four years to make a positive difference in the lives of Virginians, and to create opportunity for every Virginian, no matter who you are, no matter where you live. I look forward to hitting the ground running to do just that.”
