Council Member Mary Jane Williams


Mary Jane Williams has been a resident of Purcellville since 2002 and is the proud wife of Karl and mother of Kolby. Kolby is a 2017 graduate of Loudoun Valley High School and a 2020 graduate of the College of William and Mary.

Her focus in serving the Citizens of Purcellville revolve around the basic concerns voiced by many: maintaining our small town character, managing economic growth that helps keep taxes low and our infrastructure sound plus listening to the voices of the citizens.

One of her desires is to bring the “voice of the people”, especially the younger adults in our community into the decision making process whether through “community chats” or “citizen input” during the Town Council meetings. She would like to focus on the voice of the youth in helping shape the future of our Town. Our citizens want to be a part of the system, but need the open invitation to allow them to speak.

Mrs. Williams was a Social Science and Global Studies teacher for over 30 years, with the past 20 years being spent in Loudoun County. Upon retirement in June of 2020, Mrs. Williams was teaching at Loudoun Valley High School along with serving as Department Chair and Activities Coordinator. Throughout her career she served as a teacher of government and economics plus was the Debate Coach at Stone Bridge High School, the Model Judiciary Sponsor at both Stone Bridge High School and Loudoun Valley along with being a senior class sponsor. As a teacher, she made a point of reminding students of their civic responsibilities including voting, jury duty and sharing their opinions with others. Thus, with her own advice, she decided to run for Town Council and become a truly active member of the community; hopefully one that the citizens will share their ideas with.

Mary Jane graduated in May 1985 from SUNY Potsdam with a BA in History along with 7-12 Certification in Social Studies. In May 1986, she graduated from the University of Virginia with a Masters in Education degree. Throughout her teaching career, she has been a life long learner in the social sciences, including political science, law and economics
