Attorney Pollack seeks Edinburg council seat
Attorney Brad Pollack is running for one of three seats open on Edinburg Town Council in the May 3 election.
Pollack has a law degree from the University of Richmond and is a graduate of The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg. He also has a diploma from the Naval War College. A retired Marine Corps reserve lieutenant colonel, Pollack owns a law practice in Woodstock.
Originally from Rhode Island, Pollack moved to Edinburg in 2011. He said he wants to make an impact on the town.
“I’m proud to be a relatively new member of Edinburg,” Pollack said. “It’s not easy managing a small town. We’ve got big challenges with the water and sewer systems and I’d just like to help. We don’t have a lot of money to throw around, so when we do spend, we need to spend wisely.”
Pollack says that his work as a lawyer has prepared him very well for Town Council.
“The practice of law involves a lot of areas of governmental concern,” he said. “A lot of the things that are on the town council’s agenda each month are actually things that interest me quite a bit. I have been a practicing attorney for many years, so I’m familiar with the law and how things operate. I’m quite ready.”
Pollack has a history of working in government. He worked in the governor’s office in Richmond in the early 1990s as well as in the office of the secretary of the navy.
Pollack and his wife, Deborah, live in Edinburg with their son, Harrison, 17.
