Editor: In the race to succeed Supervisor Geary Higgins, an official who has fought to preserve our rural countryside and ensure that Catoctin’s issues are resolved through common sense solutions, there is only one man who has showed that he is qualified to serve as Catoctin’s supervisor. That man is Caleb Kershner.
I’ve known Caleb for more than a decade and I sincerely believe that he is the best choice for Catoctin because his good judgement, common sense, and understanding of the issues equip him to make the decisions that most serve Catoctin and Loudoun County as a whole.
When the Board of Supervisors voted on the expansion of Route 15, Caleb used his experience, activism, and professionalism to protect Catoctin’s interests by addressing the Board and encouraging them to vote for Option B, which ultimately passed. This is the kind of official we want to represent us.
Throughout my friendship with Caleb, I’ve learned that his upbringing as a farm boy created who he has become today. That upbringing has given him his love of Loudoun’s countryside. This is why he addressed the Board of Supervisors in May about the Comprehensive Plan, urging them to preserve the balance between the rural west and the suburban east, and therefore preserve Loudoun’s beautiful farmlands.
The leadership that Caleb has displayed is the leadership that Catoctin deserves.
I’m voting for Caleb Kershner. I hope you will too.
