Stephens City Councilman Hollis seeks re-election

Joseph Hollis

Incumbent Joseph Hollis is running for re-election to one of three seats on Stephens City Town Council in November’s election.

Hollis has been a resident of the town for 50 years and lives in a house on Main Street with his wife Vickie. He retired from being president of BJ Sager Inc. in 2010 after 32 years of working for the Winchester-based Anheuser-Busch distributor. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Richmond.

That experience, he said, helps lend to his qualifications as a candidate. He said he aims to work to encourage a business-friendly environment in Stephens City and encourage improvements to water and sewer systems and town sidewalks.

Hollis has served on council for 14 years and served on the Stephens City Planning Commission for four years before his time as a councilman. He is chairman of the town’s finance committee

“My main priority would be to resolve the ongoing conflict with the Frederick County Sanitation Authority to guarantee reasonable and justifiable rates for water and sewer service,” he said.

“Having worked with the rest of Town Council on the renewal of the town’s agreement with the Sanitation Authority, I am uniquely qualified to bring it to a favorable resolution,” he added.
