Montclair community leader Douglas S. Taggart announced he will be filing paperwork to be a candidate for the Prince William County Board of Supervisors Potomac Magisterial District in 2019.
“The challenges and opportunities facing Prince William County are enormous,” said Taggart. “Our local government must be up to the challenge of modernizing our roads and transportation options, improving our schools, and facilitating job creation and growth in the private sector so Prince William residents do not have to commute to other counties to work. I hope to earn voters’ support to serve on the Board of Supervisors, because I believe that together we can meet these challenges and make this great place to live even better.”
A retired United States Coast Guard officer, Doug Taggart is the President of Overlook Systems Technologies, Inc. a small business providing professional engineering and technical services to the Department of Defense on the Global Positioning System (GPS).
