Supervisor Matt Letourneau was elected to represent the Dulles District on the Board of Supervisors in November 2011 and re-elected in 2015, receiving over 70 percent of the vote - the largest margin of victory of any elected official in Loudoun County with a contested race.
Supervisor Letourneau led the effort to expand and restructure Loudoun County Economic Development and implement a new international business development strategy, which resulted in a major increase in commercial business development. He also has been a strong advocate for transportation projects, such as the widening of Route 606, the expansion of Loudoun County Parkway, and the Metro Silver Line extension to Loudoun. He also has fought for more services in Dulles South, and obtained funding to open the Gum Spring Library and construct the Dulles South Multipurpose Center Indoor Recreation Center and Senior Center.
Supervisor Letourneau serves as Chairman of the Board's Finance, Government Operations and Economic Development Committee, which oversees county services, finances, and economic development efforts.
In 2018, he was elected Chairman of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Board of Directors (COG), becoming the first person from Loudoun to chair the COG board since 1983. The board governs the independent, nonprofit association that brings area leaders from 24 jurisdictions in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia together to address major regional issues. Supervisor Letourneau has been a member of the COG Board since 2012, and served as Corporate President in 2014 and was elected vice president of the Board of Directors in 2016. He also serves on the COG Region Forward committee.
Supervisor Letourneau represents Loudoun on the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC), which oversees public transit. In January 2018, he was selected to serve as vice chairman of the commission. This followed his election in 2017 as secretary-treasurer of the commission, the first Loudoun County Supervisor to serve as an officer of the NVTC. He also represents Loudoun on the Route 28 Transportation Improvement District Commission.
In his professional capacity, he serves as Senior Director of Communications and Media for the Institute for 21st Century Energy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Prior to joining the Chamber, he was the Republican Communications Director for the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, and Press Secretary to U.S. Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico.
Supervisor Letourneau is originally from central Massachusetts, which explains his love for Boston’s sports teams. He was a cum laude graduate of The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C., where he met his wife Margaret. They have four children – Patrick, Emily, Brendan, and Caitlin, reside in Little River Commons in Chantilly, and attend Corpus Christi Catholic Parish in Stone Ridge.
