Loudoun County Seeks Input from the Ashburn Community

Loudoun County wants to hear from residents and business owners in the Ashburn Community about their perceptions of living and working in the community.  The boundaries of the Ashburn Community include the Potomac River to the north, the Broad Run to the east, the Goose Creek and Beaverdam Reservoir to the west, and Ryan Road to the south. 

To take one or both surveys, please visit the project’s webpage at www.loudoun.gov/ashburn-outreach.  If you are not a resident of the Ashburn Community, your participation in the survey is still valued and welcome.  Surveys will be collected through the end of August and the results will be released in the fall.

Loudoun Circuit Court Clerk Announces Changes to Management Team

Gary M. Clemens, clerk of the circuit court, has announced some recent changes to his  management team.  Several deputy clerks were recently promoted to management-level  positions.

Kimberly Walker was promoted to the position of manager of the civil case management division.  The civil case management division is responsible for the receipt of new  lawsuits, issuance of subpoenas, the retention of civil court files, filing of all legal pleadings,  assisting the public with requests related to civil cases and many other responsibilities.   Walker has worked in the clerk’s office for the past six years starting in the file room as a team  leader and most recently as the criminal division manager.  This position is very challenging as  the volume of civil court cases has increased by 18% in the past year.

In this regard, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s recent fall from grace should serve as an object lesson for anyone who has a job...and especially for anyone who is seeking a job.
