Sam Kroiz for Catoctin Supervisor
I'm running for Supervisor for the Catoctin District because Loudoun County is a special place and I want to keep it that way. I'm the 8th generation of my family to live and work on our farm at Georges Mill, just NW of Lovettsville, and I don't intend to be the last. Change is not a bad thing, but 20-30yrs from now, when my kids are having kids, I want Loudoun to bear some semblance to what it is today. Loudoun is much changed from when I grew up, but it is still special and still has a great quality of life. You don't have to be an 8th generation Loudouner to deserve that your quality of life be preserved. We all deserve it. We are under no obligation to accommodate every new home that developers project they would be able to sell if we let them build, yet this concept is currently driving our Comprehensive Plan Review. County leaders should instead determine how many new residents we can accommodate while maintaining our high quality of life and getting our tax rate under control, and use this as the basis for development planning.
I'm running as an independent because both parties are distracted from this basic concept by other partisan issues and interests. Neither party has a monopoly on good or bad ideas, and my decisions will be solely based on what is best for my constituents. We are blessed to have the greatest system of government on the planet, but it only works when good people step up to serve, and seek out and listen to the diverse ideas and opinions of their constituents. The great thing about local politics is that the numbers are small enough that I could talk to every person in the Catoctin District between now and Election Day. Rather than relying on mystery money or party voter targeting algorithms, I will be campaigning the old-fashioned way, getting out into the community, meeting people, and creating a grassroots movement. Please visit my website and follow me on social media to find out where I will be and how you can help.
The fight for Loudoun and the Catoctin District's future must happen every day, not just during election season. As Supervisor, I will hold monthly community meetings around the district to listen and learn about issues and work together to find and enact solutions. The Catoctin Supervisor is only one member of a nine member board, but with an informed and enabled citizenry, we could be the most powerful district in the county. Win or lose, my campaign will help connect and empower citizens and lead to a brighter future for the Catoctin District and all of Loudoun County, please join today!
