Purcellville Mayor Kwasi Fraser sees himself as a change agent and with two decisive victories in 2014 and 2016, it’s hard to argue.
“I am announcing that I am seeking a third term as Mayor,” Fraser states.
The Purcellville Town Election – for Mayor and three Town Council seats – will be held on Tuesday, May 1, 2018. The terms for Council Members Ted Greenly, Doug McCollum, and Karen Jimmerson will end on June 30, 2018.
“I am humbled by the outpouring of support I have received during my two terms as Mayor,” said Fraser. “I am committed to working with the Council majority to fulfill the vision for our Town and acting on the desires of our citizens.”
“In four short years, we have reduced our debt, eliminated double-digit water and sewer rate increases, created hundreds of thousands of dollars in non-tax revenue, and most recently saved taxpayers over a million dollars in yearly debt payment while retaining our stellar credit rating,” said Fraser. “I am committed to advancing our planned operational audit of current systems and processes to improve efficiencies… a first for our Town.”
With pressure to grow the Town by hundreds of acres via annexations, Fraser’s vision is to listen to the town’s citizens and refrain from transforming Purcellville into “anywhere USA.”
“We still have much to accomplish, and we have momentum on our side, and, with continued citizen engagement and support, committees of volunteers, and the strength of our local businesses, Purcellville will continue to be successful and attain greater heights,” said Fraser. “It is with these goals in mind that I am running for re-election and ask for your vote on May 1 for Mayor of the Town of Purcellville.”
