Much like Jennifer Wexton and her allegiance to Team Joe, both Andrew Hoyler (LCPS Broad Run District) and Tom Marshall (LCPS Leesburg District) have had an allegiance to Team Ziegler. Hoyler and Marshall were not elected in 2021, they were appointed by current SB members over others that expressed interest. This year, Hoyler and Marshall will be candidates in the LCPS SB Special Election and will have to actually earn the votes to maintain their seat. Do they deserve to remain on the LCPS SB? Nope, and those details will be made abundantly clear in the coming weeks and months over and over and over again.
Let’s be clear, no one gives a rip what Andrew Hoyler’s sexual preference is. This has absolutely nothing to do with his inability as a SB member. In fact, we think Hoyler is a really nice guy, however being a former LCPS student from years ago is very different than having kids in LCPS today. This is a connection that Hoyler does not have, and his devout allegiance to Scott Ziegler is very questionable to say the least. Therefore, he has to go.
It’s no secret that Tom marshall is the oldest member of the LCPS SB. In fact, he makes it a point to remind everyone every chance he gets. Marshall displays great animosity towards parents, he is unable to stay awake during school board meetings, he is the Joe Biden of the SB, and his allegiance to Scott Ziegler is troublesome. Therefore, he has to go.
This is not just an LCPS SB member special election, this is a referendum on Ziegler and the rest of the school board. The rest of the SB will have to wait until 2023. The special election also falls in line with the midterm congressional race. Loudoun County will once again be in the national spotlight and Hoyler and Marshall will have to run on their pathetic records. This will not be your average school board special election.
