FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 29, 2020 – Arlington, VA
The Libertarian Party of Northern Virginia (LPNOVA) proudly endorses Mr. Stevan Porter (51) for Herndon Town Council. The Herndon Town Council is a seven-member council with a Mayor and six councilmembers. The council functions include establishing local policy, acting on resolutions and ordinances, setting tax rates and approving the annual budget, and appointing town board members. Mr. Porter is seeking one of six at-large seats on the council with elections scheduled for November 3, 2020.
Porter’s campaign priorities of responsible government spending and protecting individual freedoms are rooted in the same belief system of LPNOVA. These include objectives that promote government accountability, protect individual and property rights, and make responsible changes to criminal justice and police programming. He also is strongly committed to community engagement and finding new ways to better involve the entire community – residents, businesses, and non-profits – to implement practical and cost effective solutions that are not primarily reliant on government provided resources.
Porter has previously represented the Libertarian Party as the 2018 U.S. House candidate in Virginia’s 11th District. He has also served in local Libertarian roles, most recently as LPNOVA’s Secretary during 2018-2019. Porter has been engaged in the community through the Herndon Rotary Club, Knights of Columbus, St. Joseph Catholic Church, and his work as a volunteer paramedic and company officer with the Loudoun County Volunteer Rescue Squad. Porter is also a full time IT professional with 25 years of experience in the field.
Recently, LPNOVA Chair Adam Theo gave praise to Porter’s campaign and his dedication to principle. “Steve will be an incredible addition to the Town of Herndon’s governing council. He brings a fresh perspective, dedication to pursuing needed change, and openness in all of his dealings that people naturally trust.” noted Theo. “He showed complete dedication to transparency and pragmatism towards our organization’s governance during his appointment as LPNOVA’s Secretary. Steve has always displayed a strong sense of fairness and respect by talking through issues with anyone – rare qualities in politics right now, sadly. We can change that state of politics by electing Stevan Porter to help in Herndon’s Town Council.”
