You are town attorney for New Market and Dayton and county attorney for Shenandoah County. What sort of responsibilities do you have in those positions? Localities, like other entities, have contracts with others, sue and are sued, hire and fire employees, but also tax and pass laws.


I


am involved in all of that and in strategy sessions designed to obtain the best outcome possible in whatever the issue of the day is. I am also a litigator, which is helpful both in being able to perform that service for my municipal clients and in steering them clear of trouble.


What are the biggest problems facing small towns and rural counties? Recruiting and retaining talented employees. Small towns and rural counties have complicated challenges and have to follow many of the same rules as everyone else, but with less resources, and they compete for some of the same talented folks as larger localities do. Economic development is also a significant challenge given the general trend towards urbanization.
