    Why is Sterling to DC the same price as Purcellville to DC? Why is the price for West Virginia residents the same price as Loudoun residents considering our tax dollars subsidize the service? Is it possible the BOS could spend some time on practical residential priorities for commuters instead of a statue that has been in Loudoun for around a century? 🙂 Where is the widening of Route 15 north of Leesburg? We had no traffic for the last 6 months yet no work was done! Where is the priority for residents?
