Middleburg Town Councilman Bridge Littleton will be moving into a new chair in the town office starting July 1. He was elected mayor by a wide margin in a three-way race Tuesday.
Littleton, whose father was a long-time council member, got 193 votes. Vincent J. Bataol was second with 91 votes and Councilman Mark T. Snyder got 11 votes, according to the unofficial results.
In the Town Council race, Vice Mayor C. Darlene Kirk—also a second generation council member—got the most votes, 183. Incumbents Peter A. Leonard-Morgan (155) and Kevin P. Hazard (134) were re-elected. They’ll be joined by the town’s former economic development coordinator, Cindy Craun Pearson, who got 165 votes. Mimi Stein narrowly missed winning a council seat, garnering 129 votes.
Littleton will replace Betsy Davis, Loudoun’s longest tenured mayor who is retiring after serving six terms as mayor. She was first elected to the Town Council in 1998.
