Meet Forest Hayes

Forest Hayes for Catoctin Supervisor

Get To Know
The Next Loudon County Representative

James Forest Hayes

James Forest Hayes was raised in St. John Baptist Church in Gary, Indiana and he can trace his heritage back as far as a family farm near Green Grove Baptist Church in Whitesville, TN and the cotton fields of Mississippi. As the son of a US Postal Worker and the grandson of US Steel factory worker, young “Jimmy” learned the meaning of hard work and the concept that life would be “hard but fair,” at a very early age. As a man, Forest Hayes draws upon his working class background and deep faith for strength as he seeks to provide a “fair shot” for all Americans.

These are the Issues
Facing Loudon County

  • Route 15

    Catoctin is demanding safer roads, especially Route 15. Our scenic byway has now become congested with daily traffic and deadly accidents.

  • Land Preservation

    I fiercely believe that land preservation is an ideal worth fighting for, and I will demand that the county’s Conservation Easement Program be fully funded for eligible landowners.

  • Small Western School Modernization

    My two children, Ella and Brayden, attend Loudoun County Public Schools. So unlike some other candidates, I have skin in the game when it comes to fighting for our small schools.

  • Workforce Housing

    Loudoun County desperately needs an affordable housing and development strategy.

  • Rural Broadband

    The richest county in America should not have worse internet access than that of many third-world countries.
