    I hope one of the submissions will address the possible evictions at Mobile Home Park in Leesburg. This would be something tangible that needs to be accomplished in Loudoun. It’s very possible that 86 families won’t have homes in a year. That’s too dreadful to contemplate. Having a roof over one’s head is a primary need for everyone, along with proper clothing & nutrition. I would feel much better knowing there’s a relocation plan in place for these vulnerable families if need be.
