School Board Vice Chairwoman Will Seek Second Term

© Leesburg Today - 05/27/2015

Jill Turgeon, the Loudoun County School Board's vice chairwoman, will seek re-election this November.

Turgeon, a former elementary school teacher, has represented the Blue Ridge District on the board since 2012. She is running unopposed, for now. The deadline for candidates to qualify for the ballot is June 9.

In a statement announcing her campaign run, she listed several initiatives she helped set in motion during her first term, many of which she said she wants to continue working on for at least another four years.

She had a hand in selecting the county's new school superintendent, Eric Williams, and she said she, ""looks forward to continuing to work with him in developing responsible budgets and ensuring that the needs of the school system are adequately met.""

Turgeon also was appointed by the Virginia's secretary of education to serve on a select committee to develop the SOL Reform Bill, which was made law last year.

She served on several School Board committees, including the Charter Committee, Personnel Committee and the Academies of Loudoun Ad Hoc Committee. She chairs the board's Curriculum and Instruction Committee.

The 44-year-old is married to a Loudoun middle school teacher. They have two grown daughters and a son who will graduate from Woodgrove High School next month.

Turgeon will hold a campaign kickoff event from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Train Station, 200 N. 21st St. in Purcellville. A $25 donation is suggested but not required to attend the event. RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

She also has a campaign page on Facebook: ""Jill Turgeon, Loudoun County School Board.""
