Loudoun County is the richest county in America. We have a higher median income than even New York City or Los Angeles. What we don’t need is a tax rate that matches that distinction. Now that state and local deductions have been capped for our federal taxes, it is more important than ever that we keep tight control of our property tax rate, so that the citizens of Ashburn don’t see higher tax bill at both the local and Federal level.
During his time on the Board of Supervisors, Mick was one of the strongest voices for fiscal restraint, looking to maximize efficiency and cut unnecessary spending. He will continue to fight for lower taxes as your Supervisor.
Bringing more high paying jobs to Loudoun County will be a top priority. By attracting more jobs to locate where our citizens live, we can reduce traffic congestion, cut commute times, and increase our commercial tax base.
Mick is also a strong proponent of telecommuting, and will work to enhance those policies, along with a push for high speed internet infrastructure for Western Loudoun.
Mick has experience in providing effective transportation solutions for Loudoun County. As the Transportation Committee Chairman, and then the first ever Chairman of the combined Transportation and Land Use Committee, Mick has delivered numerous transportation improvements throughout the county.
Whether it is corridor improvements on Route 7, widening of Belmont Ridge Road, new sidewalks and bike paths in Lowes Island, or new interchanges on Route 7, Mick has the experience and the dedication to make sure you can get home from work faster and spend more time with your family and less time sitting in traffic.
Mick has always been a strong proponent for our Sheriff’s Deputies and our Firefighters. As the Ashburn District Supervisor, Mick will continue to support our first-responders to make sure our neighborhoods are safe and kid-friendly.
Quality of Life
All of Loudoun’s vibrant neighborhoods deserve protection. The issue that drove Mick to first run for Supervisor in 2003 was the desire to protect the existing suburban neighborhoods in Sterling and Sugarland run from being the targets of redevelopment into high density town centers.
With the coming of metro to Loudoun County, Mick will fight to make sure that we preserve the high quality of life we have here for the existing neighborhoods of Ashburn.
