County Attorney Roberts announces retirement

Long-time Loudoun County Attorney John R. (Jack) Roberts has announced his retirement after nearly 30 years of service with the county.

Roberts has served as county attorney since 1989. His retirement will be effective July 1.

As county attorney, Roberts served as the chief legal counsel to the Board of Supervisors and county departments and agencies during an era of unprecedented growth and development in Loudoun County, according to Loudoun County's public information office

Roberts joined the Loudoun County government in 1985 as assistant county attorney. He had previously served as Assistant County Attorney for Fairfax County.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) has directed County Administrator Tim Hemstreet to develop options for the recruitment of the next county attorney for consideration by the board.


Perhaps this will open the way for a more transparent office. Currently certain members of the staff how questionable ethics. The citizens can only hope the new County Attorney will attempt to remove the bad elements from the office.

Mr. Roberts is a good guy who has served the county well.

Hope you enjoy a long and happy retirement, Jack!
