Purcellville Town Council voted last week to appoint new councilwoman Mary Jane Williams as the town's vice mayor.
Williams recently retired as a teacher at Loudoun Valley High School and has lived in Purcellville since 2002. She was elected June 4 along with a slate that included Mayor Kwasi Fraser, Councilman Chris Bertaut and Councilman Stanley Milan.

Williams' term as vice mayor will end June 30, 2021.
Town Council also voted for committee appointments, which will run through June 2022.
Milan was appointed to the town's Planning Commission, Bertaut to the Economic Development Advisory Commission, Councilman Joel Grewe to the Tree and Environment Sustainability Committee, Williams to the Purcellville Arts Council, Councilman Ted Greenly to the Board of Architectural Review, Stinnette to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Fraser will represent the town on regional groups and bodies as well as the Train Station Advisory Board.
