Leesburg Director of Finance announces retirement

Norman Butts, chief financial officer for the Town of Leesburg, has announced his resignation.

The move is effective June 20.

Butts was tapped May 21 by Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones as the chief financial officer and deputy chief administrative officer for the City of Richmond. He will officially begin his new position June 23, where he will be responsible for the city's Departments of Finance, Budget and Strategic Planning, Procurement, Human Resources and Information Technology.

Butts has been with the town since 2004, where he helped garner the town a triple-A bond rating. Prior to joining Leesburg, he worked as the first inspector general in Montgomery County, Maryland. He also worked as an auditor in Concord, N.H. and as a debt manager in the Virginia Treasurer's Office under Gerald Baliles, who served as governor from 1986 to 1990.

An advertisement to replace Butts as director of finance in Leesburg has been posted and will close June 27. The search is external.


Interesting that this story was out in the public domain 5/21/14, yet there was no word from the Mayor or Town Manager (s). Transparency is what the Mayor and all of her underlings (Council) promote, yet their was silence out of Town Hall for two weeks!  In an election year that many expect will yield many tight races, who is running scared? Seems like the Mayor might be.

An upbeat article.  Geeeeeeeeee, what does this say about the angry little man comments we keep getting from Ton Dunn about the state of the Town of Leesburg.  Things look great to me, and all without the help of Tom Dunn, who votes no on everything and attacks everything.  Good job to the Town, and to Mayor Umstattd and those on Council who know that working together gets great results, and leaves Tom Dunn just looking bad.
