Members of the community met at the Montclair Community Library over the weekend to celebrate the dedication of a reading room to Potomac Supervisor Maureen Caddigan.
According to a release, the room was named the ‘Maureen S. Caddigan Reading Room’ following a unanimous vote from the Prince William Public Library’s Board of Trustees.
“I am very, very touched and I’m touched with what I’ve heard up here today…I’ve lived in this community a long time…and I was here, you know, when the site for this library was proffered, over 30 years ago…never, never in a million years did I ever dream that you would be honoring me in such a special way,” said Caddigan.
Caddian has been serving on the Prince William Board of County Supervisors since the 90s and previously served on the Prince William County School Board.
“So Maureen Caddigan – I don’t know exactly what to say except ‘you never mess with Maureen’…she’s always been very, very helpful, very insightful. She’s got a great political ear, she knows where the community is. Maureen really understands not just for the Potomac District but really for the whole county,” said Chairman Corey Stewart.
During the room naming ceremony, there was a special surprise, as Stewart announced that he would be requesting that the Board of Supervisors name the entire library in Caddigan’s honor.
“It’s my intention on Tuesday, to request the Board of Supervisors to request the Library Board to name this library after you – the Maureen S. Caddigan Community Library. There’s nobody on our Board of Supervisors that has done more than you for this district,” said Stewart.
