Editor: Last night Congregation Sha’are Shalom was honored to host the League of Women Voters Loudoun County’s School Board Candidates Forum. We wish to thank the League for the opportunity to host the event, the gracious presence and participation of the candidates, and the nearly 200 Loudoun neighbors and friends who filled the sanctuary.
Last night showcased Loudoun at its best. It was our privilege to host this event and thrilling to see the wide array of Loudoun County represented by those present. Further, the conversations on and off the dais reflected the best of what civic engagement should be: diverse values, viewpoints, and priorities all presented, sometimes passionately, and always respectfully. I invite the rest of our Loudoun County community to embrace this approach as we take to heart the message of the evening’s event: Think Global, Vote Local.
