LCPS is Loudoun County’s largest employer. That is just plain scary. This means the single largest “product” of Loudoun County is the student population. Our productivity goes toward what cannot pay for itself (education needs other income as the source for the money to pay for it). It is no wonder that taxes are high in order to support such a structure. Not only that, but if LCPS is the largest employer, the rest of the county employees must make Loudoun even more government heavy. Government jobs need productive jobs (real productivity jobs, not service jobs) to support them. What industry does Loudoun provide?
We must attract and keep industry to Loudoun. Didn’t anybody study macro economics in school? What do we teach these adults in college these days!
