A huge cause for concern: the Board of Supervisors is looking at lowering our property tax rate from $1.205 to $1.16 or even $1.14. How can we maintain quality public education when our schools are continuing to increase enrollment?

We are concerned Loudoun taxpayers who believe that quality public education is vital to our community's interests. Specifically, we are concerned that our local elected officials are planning to equalize or cut the property tax rate in Loudoun County, which would cause a cut to our schools' budget of an estimated $40 million. We intend to voice our concerns in order to influence these officials to treat quality public education as the priority we believe it to be.
