WHY I'M RUNNING
PAUL SIKER - WHO I AM
I’m a seasoned entrepreneur, small business owner, engaged community volunteer and non-profit board member. I’m running for the House of Delegates (HOD) District 33 seat because residents in Western Loudoun, Clarke, and Frederick Counties deserve significantly better representation in the General Assembly. The formula for my personal and professional success is simple: I listen, collaborate, build consensus, and get things done. I will bring this skill mix and a spirit of servant leadership to the role of delegate. I am a fiscal conservative and social moderate who has profound respect for our democratic institutions and freedoms. I believe in principled, transparent, and character-based leadership.
I have served on the boards of the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS), and the Community Foundation of Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. I am also engaged in other philanthropic efforts via Catoctin Presbyterian Church in Waterford, where I am an Elder.
The 33rd District is a special place in the Commonwealth. We live in one of the most beautiful and vibrant areas of the country. Yet, there are pressing issues that are being ignored and that call for creative solutions. My priorities include expanding the district’s rural economy; incenting preservation initiatives; addressing key transportation issues (such as the Dulles Greenway, and Rt.15 corridor); assuring social equity, sustaining our top-tier public schools; investing in rural broadband infrastructure, and appropriately pursuing green energy initiatives and environmental solutions.
