Former Leesburg Mayor Dave Butler Backs Jennifer Boysko For Congress

Butler: “Jennifer understands the issues facing Leesburg and Loudoun County”

Sterling, VA – Today, former Mayor of Leesburg Dave Butler announced his endorsement of State Senator Jennifer Boysko for Congress in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. Butler highlighted Boysko’s deep knowledge of local issues from representing Leesburg and Loudoun County residents in the legislature.

“As a former Mayor, I know it’s critical for leaders to understand the challenges facing local communities,” said Butler. “Having served Loudoun in the General Assembly over the past eight years, Jennifer Boysko has seen firsthand the issues we face and will take that experience to Congress on day one.”

Butler said that Boysko’s understanding of local priorities makes her the clear choice for Loudoun families.

“Whether ensuring quality education, advancing transportation solutions, or supporting our economy, Jennifer has proven she knows Leesburg and Loudoun County,” Butler continued. “I enthusiastically endorse Jennifer Boysko and urge Loudoun County voters to send her much-needed local voice to Congress.”

Boysko thanked Butler for his backing. “I’m grateful to have the support of my friend Dave as we fight for Northern Virginia families,” she said. “Dave’s collaborative demeanor and can-do attitude are a good example for all elected officials and I plan to bring those traits to Washington.”

Dave Butler was first elected to the Leesburg Town Council in 2008, winning more votes than anyone else. He was appointed to serve as Mayor of Leesburg in 2016.


Boysko is a Virginia State Senator and the Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee. She is the only Northern Virginia Senator negotiating Virginia’s state budget where she is working to deliver $2.5 billion in new education funding, millions to save Metro, and important investments to improve mental health services and combat climate change. Senator Boysko represented as many as 200,000 residents in Loudoun County for 8 years in the General Assembly. Among her long and accomplished legislative record, this year she carried the constitutional amendment to ensure abortion access, collective bargaining, and paid family and medical leave.
