A trio of candidates is seeking the position of mayor for the Town of Herndon, typically a non-competitive race.
Councilmembers Sean Regan and Jasbinder Singh are running against current Mayor Sheila Olem to fill the seat for the upcoming 2023-2024 term.
Election Day is on Tuesday, Nov. 8, and polling locations correspond with locations for the national elections.
Regan says he wants to create a collaborative environment where diverse opinions are heard and welcome. His top priorities are housing, the redevelopment of downtown Herndon, and traffic and parking.
“We will disagree at times but we don’t have to be disagreeable. We can argue joyfully,” Regan said.
Olem said she hopes to continue leveraging her 12 years of experience as mayor and council member going forward.
“With the arrival of Metro, my goal is to keep the hometown feeling of community that brought many of us tot he Town of Herndon,” Olem wrote in a statement.
Singh did not immediately return a request for comment from FFXnow. In 2020, Olem faced Roland Taylor after longtime mayor Lisa Merkel stepped down.
On the side of the Herndon Town Council, nine candidates are running for six seats for the 2023-2024 term.
Current council members include Naila Alam, Cesar del Aguila, Pradip Dhakal and Signe Friedrichs. The other candidates are Clark Hedrick, Stevan Portr, Keven LeBlanc, Donielle Scherff and Roland Taylor.
The election is administered by Fairfax County.
