Roanoke County Attorney Paul Mahoney announced Monday that he will be retiring, effective December 1. Mahoney submitted his retirement letter to Board Chairman Jason Peters last week.
“I have enjoyed a long career serving in Roanoke County,” said Mahoney. “Over my 31 years here in the County, I have had the opportunity to work with many dedicated and skilled people. Together, we have accomplished many good things to make Roanoke a better place to live and work, and to improve the lives of our citizens.”
Chairman Peters added, “I am saddened to see Paul leave Roanoke County. Even though I have only worked with Paul since January 2013, I have come to appreciate and admire his love for his work, his family, and for Roanoke County. It is rare to find someone who is dedicated to a position for over 30 years.”
Prior to his move to Roanoke County in 1984, Mahoney served as County Attorney in Montgomery County from 1979-1984. Before that, he was in private practice in Falls Church, and also served as assistant city attorney in Falls Church after graduating from law school in 1975.
