Randall Gets Office Budget Increase

The office of the county chair-at-large will get a budget boost of $45,000 per year after a vote by the Board of Supervisors on Sept. 8.

The money for this year will come out of the $1.7 million that was left unallocated at the end of the Fiscal Year 2022 budget process—revenues that the county expects to make this fiscal year, but which is not yet dedicated to another expense. It increases Chair Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large)’s office budget from $290,182 to $335,182.

That money is separate from the salary Randall makes, which in 2022 is $84,376.44.

According to a meeting item prepared by her office, Randall asked for the office budget increase to hire a new staff member who will focus on constituent services and her work on regional, state and national bodies.

Supervisors voted 8-0-1 to approve the budget increase, with Supervisor Caleb E. Kershner (R-Catoctin) absent.

    This BoS will spend EVERY SINGLE PENNY they can find. ANd then issue debt to cover the rest.

    Zero relief for Loudoun’s taxpayers. We’re just here to fund the fantasies of these lunatics.

    “Randall asked for the office budget increase to hire a new staff member who will focus on constituent services and her work on regional, state and national bodies.”

    And why are Loudoun taxpayers paying for Randall’s work on regional, state, and national bodies? We pay Randall and her staff to work on LOUDOUN’s issues.

    I hope voters remember where Randall devotes her time, because it isn’t with us.

      I think it’s within the purview of supervisors to liaise with regional and state bodies, at least. Kind of odd that you don’t think that’s related to her job.

    If it takes another staff member to create a priority list of what the BOS will focus on other than taking down statues, changing street names and updating 70 year old plaques it is well worth it. 🙂

    Is that your hand in my pocket or are you just happy to see me. Which friend/family member will be hired?

    Why don’t the BOS use the money and relocate the residents in the trailer park that are about to get booted??

    The BOS and LCPS are NOT here to represent Loudoun taxpayers. We know that. They are here for themselves and pet projects.

    Pathetic.

    Phyllis doesn’t care about Loudoun County. It’s all about her getting to play politician. This “work” she claims is so important on “regional, state and national bodies — what has it produced for the benefit of Loudoun? I’ll settle for just one example. Ten times out of ten, they’re junkets, dinners, trips, parties, networking with fellow governmental leeches to figure out ways to waste more tax money.

    Wake up taxpayers. These people are not your friends. Privately, they despise us.

    A smart, aggressive, young reporter should do some journalist stuff and list all of these “bodies” and the tangible benefits to the county.
