Attorney Announces Primary Challenge in Sterling District Board Race

Corporate attorney and former House of Delegates legislative aide Ibrahim Moiz has announced a primary challenge to Supervisor Koran T. Saines (D-Sterling).

Moiz, a native of Flint, MI, moved to Loudoun 2008 after graduating law school at Howard University, and is a partner at the NOVA Business Law Group. In 2009, he served as a legislative aide to then-Del. David E. Poisson (D-32). He is a member of the Virginia Real Estate Board and of the county’s Fiscal Impact Committee, to which Saines nominated him in 2016.

In a release announcing the challenge, Moiz pointed to ongoing work on the new comprehensive plan, which calls for more development.

“This growth must be done by prioritizing our environment,” Moiz stated. “We need to ensure that we have a proper plan that will continue to attract the best and brightest to Loudoun. But not just attract them, but to give them and our children a reason to stay here.”

Moiz, who has three daughters in the public school system, had previously announced plans to run for the School Board, but switched tracks to the supervisors race. He said as Loudoun continues to grow, “we, in Sterling, cannot continue to be ignored and left behind.”

“I believe more needs to be done for Sterling,” Moiz stated. “Credit must be given to the work that’s been done here by our current supervisor, but I see plenty of room for improvement and I am ready to serve in this role to see to those changes.”

    Could part of the reason our government is such a mess be that there is a abundance of attorneys elected?

    Just what Loudoun needs: Another out of state corporate cog who thinks they’re the smartest person in the room. Why not run for city council back in Flint? God knows they could use some help.

    Saines is doing fine.

    Supervisor Saines has just learned a hard lesson in local politics — never appoint a future opponent to a commission or anything else. I guess Saines and Moiz must have had a falling out, or, Moiz led Saines to believe he would be a loyal supporter if he got the fiscal impact committee slot, and is now gunning for his job. Moiz has more campaign cash, too. Never would have suspected there’d be a Democratic primary contest for this position.

    There could not be a more fine example of good ethics and leadership than David Poisson. Anyone David worked with is a stellar candidate.
