In a Tuesday, Feb. 16 statement, Vice Mayor Patrick McConville II said he has been busy in the community obtaining signatures for re-election this May. "I am encouraged by the positive feedback and support within the community. I do truly love this Town and all the amenities it has to offer," he said.
"We have a beautiful park in the middle of Town," he said, "where you can watch a summer wooden bat baseball league. We have many wineries and breweries as a place to get together with friends. We have many wonderful restaurants to feed your family and celebrate birthdays. We have community events such as the Wine and Food Festival, the Purcellville Music and Arts Festival and Loudoun Grown Expo. All of these provide entertainment opportunities, jobs for our residents, bring tourists and revenues to invest in our community. I have supported them in the past and will continue to do so in the future."
"In the future, we have many choices as a community to make in terms of increasing recreation opportunities, looking at water and sewer rates and finding both alternate and innovative ways to reduce the bills as well as addressing solutions in front of us today, and the potential for growth in and around Purcellville, " he said. "I welcome discussions as I am walking around over the next few months. Please feel free to speak to me if you see me in a grocery store or shop."
McConville is seeking another term to enhance Purcellville and create more opportunities for local businesses to thrive. "I can't wait to serve the people of Purcellville for another four years and welcome any support you give me," the statement read.
