The Loudoun County Board of supervisors last week unanimously adopted a resolution of appreciation for longtime Middleburg Mayor Betsy Davis, commending her “lifelong devotion and service to the Town of Middleburg and Loudoun County community.”
Davis has served on the dais continuously since 1998, when she joined the Town Council. In 2006, she was elected mayor, only leaving the post when she decided not to run again this year after six terms. She is Loudoun’s longest-tenured mayor.
Davis has also served on the Middleburg Volunteer Fire & Rescue’s Board of Directors, the Coalition of Loudoun Towns, the Towns Association of Northern Virginia, the Leadership Council of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground, the Middleburg Community Center Board, the Hill School Alumni Board, and the Middleburg Tennis Club Board. She was the 2017 Loudoun Laurels Honoree.
Davis will hand the gavel off to Middleburg Councilman Bridge Littleton on July 1. Littleton, the son of another longtime council member, was elected by a wide margin in a three-way race.
