    Letters to the Editor

    I want to thank the people of Leesburg who, over the last ten years, paid the taxes that went into rebuilding much of our storm drainage infrastructure. These storm drainage projects were never glamorous and were always inconvenient for the neighborhoods where the work was done. But when Hurricane Sandy hit us with 8 inches of rain in a 2 day period, the new drainage infrastructure kept most of the flooding away from most of Leesburg’s homes. I also want to thank those good neighbors who took the time to clear their neighborhood storm drain inlets before the hurricane got underway. When I drove through town yesterday morning, it was obvious that many of you took the time and your own rakes to clear the inlets. I couldn’t be prouder of this town and all of you who helped by alerting town staff to potential problems or by taking matters into your own hands.
