    Janet Clarke won’t seek second term on Board of Supervisors

    Loudoun County Supervisor Janet Clarke will not seek re-election in 2015, Clarke announced at a private party Saturday.

    A first-term Republican supervisor, Clarke represents the Blue Ridge District, comprised mostly of western Loudoun and portions of Brambleton. Clarke's district spans the largest geographic area of the county's eight electoral districts. She defeated incumbent Supervisor Jim Burton, an independent, by 14 percent of the vote in 2011.

    Clarke, who said she wants to spend more time with her family, served as vice chairman on the board in 2012, before Supervisor Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run) took over that role in 2013 and 2014.

    "Janet had a birthday celebration tonight at Chrysalis Winery here on Champe Ford Road, and we all went expecting her to announce that she would run for reelection in November of 2015," said Billie Van Pay, a Times-Mirror community columnist who attended the party. "She announced instead that she would not run for re-election."

    Clarke also announced she's endorsing a relative newcomer to Loudoun County to replace her -- Tony Buffington, an ex-marine who lives in Brambleton and works for the federal government.

    None of Clarke's colleagues on the all-Republican Loudoun board have indicated they will not seek re-election. Board veterans Chairman Scott York (R-At Large) and Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) have publicly indicated they will seek another term.

    In a statement, Clarke said, “I have just over another year of service in this capacity and remain dedicated to fulfilling my duties to serve the community in this capacity. I am grateful and honored to have been able to serve Loudoun County."
