Ed Elswick Announces for Windsor District

Ed Elswick Announces for Windsor District

Ed Elswick announced Tursday that he is running for Roanoke County Board of Supervisor in the Windsor Hills District of Roanoke County.

He will challenge Joe McNamara in the June 9th Republican primary.

Elswick has lived on Bent Mountain in the Windsor Hills District of Roanoke County for 25 years and is retired from GE as finance quality assurance manager.

He is a former school teacher with a BA from Berea College with a masters from Ball State University.

Elswick considers a supervisor’s role as one of being a manager of taxpayers funding of County services. He believes Supervisors position should not be a political one, but more emphasizes should be placed on insuring that citizens desires are met without excessive spending. Elswick in his press release says, “the citizens of Roanoke County should approve any excessive expenditure on major projects” and thinks the County has gone too far with expensive projects that do not represent citizen’s desires. This seriously impacts future tax rates in the county, said Elswick.

In his press release he states that he wants a more fiscally responsive County Administration with a concentration on serving citizens, containing expenditures and promoting all the positive aspects of the area to interested future employers.

He advocates a citizen advisory group through a Countywide Civic Organization. This will promote cooperation, citizen input, and communication channels with the County Board and Roanoke county Citizens.

Elswick currently serves as Bent Mountain Civic league president and says he will promote strong ties to the entire Roanoke Valley educational institutions from public schools to private Colleges and State universities.

Thank you Ed Elswick, for running as a fiscal conservative, in the upcoming Board of Supervisors Republican Primary on June 9th, in Roanoke County. That is what we have needed in Roanoke County for a long time.

You should be respected and admired, to step up” to the plate”, and finally make a welcomed change to the excessive spending that Roanoke County has continually burdened our citizens with, through extremely high taxes.

Good Luck!
