Meet Stanley J                                                       

Stanley J. “Stan” Milan, Sr, is running for the November 8, 2022 Purcellville Town Mayor election.  Milan says his priorities reflect his values of civic service and commitment to family and community.  Milan’s focus as Mayor would be to use sound judgement based on facts, and what the citizens want. Milan has a track record of balanced reasoning in the face of tough decisions, and this quality reinforces his confidence that he would be an asset to the Purcellville Town Council.

While serving as First Class Missile Technician aboard the USS Alaska (SSBN 732) from 1990 to 1993, Milan held two positions, one as Leading Petty Officer supervising the maintenance, weapons readiness, training, advancement, and personal growth of the Weapons Department (Missile and Fire Control Technicians) of the United States Navy.  Milan also performed duties as First Lieutenant supervising the training, advancement, and personal growth of the Deck Division of the United States Navy. 

Milan also served as a career counselor and command financial counselor to his peers, and junior personnel in the Navy. Milan in 1985 received the distinction of Master Training Specialist at the TRIDENT Training Facility in Bangor, Washington.

Following three decades of military service to our country, Milan then served his Kitsap County, Washington community as a Reserve Deputy Sheriff, and later, in Fairfax County, Virginia, as a Fairfax County Sheriff Reserve Officer.  Milan honed the skill discipline of restraint under pressure while serving as a law enforcement officer. In addition, he cultivated character traits of collaborative problem solving and resiliency, while advancing the goal of serving and protecting the community.

Milan’s employers have included the top five defense contractors in the nation.  Milan’s positions as Information Security System Officer (ISSO) and Industrial Special Security Administrator (ISSA) included six-and nine-month deployments to Afghanistan.  

 In his free time, Milan studies yoga, and is a 5th degree Master Black Belt in Hapkido and a 4th degree black belt in Taekwondo.  He has taught self-defense classes at Loudoun Valley Yoga and is an instructor at a DoJang in Herndon, Virginia. 

 Milan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Education from Southern Illinois University.  He served as a High School Tutor Coordinator in Silverdale, Washington; an early STEM program in which military base sailors and government contractors, tutor local high school students in math and sciences. 

  Milan believes Purcellville needs his voice as Mayor, and will benefit from the wisdom he has gained from volunteer and professional positions held in a lifetime of service to our nation, and the communities in which he has lived.  

 “I am running to maintain our small town atmosphere and charm, which is why I moved here with my family.  I am committed to slow growth, transparent government, and finding innovative solutions for Purcellville. I look forward to meeting the citizens of Purcellville as I campaign.  My primary message to them is that I will keep my campaign promises,” said Milan.

 Milan is a father of six grown children and lives with his wife Jona in the Old Dominion neighborhood. He can be reached at
