For the third time this year, Front Royal resident Mark Egger addressed the Warren County Board of Supervisors Tuesday evening, imploring the panel to remove Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority Director Jennifer McDonald and the entire board for “the good of the community.”

Egger, the father of former Front Royal Town Councilwoman Bébhinn C. Egger, told the board that he believed, based upon transcripts of police interviews with McDonald and others, that lies were concocted to distract from questions asked by Ms. Egger regarding the IT Federal and workforce housing projects.

He also told the supervisors that, based upon transcripts of the police investigation files he obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, McDonald appeared to have staged the break-in and vandalism at the EDA office and attempted to set-up various community members, including the editor and a reporter of Royal Examiner.

Following the meeting, when asked about confidence in the current EDA board and its executive director, only Dan Murray was willing to go on the record and express that he was confident in the board as it is currently staffed.

When asked about his confidence in the board and its executive director, County Administrator Doug Stanley replied, “No comment.”

Incidentally, the board announced at Tuesday’s meeting that it had selected Edwin Daley to fill the seat vacancy created by the resignation of long-time treasurer Billy Biggs. Daley’s term runs until Feb. 29, 2020.
