CUMBERLAND – On March 23, Lloyd Banks kicked off his campaign for District Two supervisor in Cumberland County, according to a press release received by The Herald. Banks is a lifelong resident of Virginia and made his home in Cumberland in 2008 after retiring from the federal government.

Banks says his interest in serving on the Board of Supervisors is motivated by the County's debt climbing to nearly $50 million and his desire to better control County costs and limit future tax increases imposed upon residents.

Banks said his commitments to his supporters include, “opposition to all future increases in County debt; opposition to any future tax increases to residents; (and) ensuring County expenses are below annual revenue.”
