Letter: Susanne Kahler, Leesburg

Editor: If our area politicians want to help struggling local restaurants, and prioritize safety when reopening, why don’t they look to the Europeans who dine outside most of the year? 

Shut down a couple roads and dedicate them to the restaurants who line those roads and let them expand their outdoor seating capacity and move tables outside.

You can do it in downtown Leesburg and places like the Village of Leesburg, Lansdowne Town Center, One Loudoun, etc.

It’s a start.

    I lived in Europe for many years and I don’t recall Europeans north of the Alps eating outside for most of the year. Maybe this is common in some southern areas but I didn’t spend much time in that part of Europe.

    But, at least we can all trust the “settled science” until we figure out it isn’t really quite that “settled” even after all this time.

    The governor and the BoS are really in over their heads on this. The governor has done incalculable harm to the residents of 90% of Virginia and I get the feeling he doesn’t really care. Virginians deserve better governance than we are getting.
