This November, five Leesburg residents will be vying for three town council seats. The Times-Mirror contacted each of them to get their views on current town issues and find out more about them as candidates.

Todd Cimino-Johnson, a program coordinator of business and economics at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, announced his run late last year. His platform rests on three major issues: increasing the tree canopy, developing a new business incubator in downtown Leesburg, and partnering with the county and state to encourage affordable housing, especially after last year’s threat to the low-income residents of Leesburg Mobile Park with a proposed, but ultimately canceled, sale of the park.

Hey Todd as a taxpayer I do not need you to subsidize someone's home with taxpayer dollars. Ever think if taxes were lower more people could afford to buy homes not just your selected group.


Is the virtual roundtable only for small business owners and Leesburg residents.


Democrats are scraping the bottom of the barrel this election cycle!
