SENATOR DICK BLACK AND EUGENE DELGAUDIO, HISTORY TODAY

March 4, 2020

NOT AN ENDORSEMENT. JUST HISTORY TODAY.

SENATOR DICK BLACK AND EUGENE DELGAUDIO (2015)

As an 15 year elected official and 15 year Republican leader before that, for 30 years, I have never met a more principled national and international conservative leader like Richard Black who devotes his life to impacting legal issues, legislative issues and foreign policy as well in such a consistent conservative world view.

Five years ago about this time, I was honored to have him speak these words, in part, about my 15 years of service.

The video is posted on youtube and his kind words give a good summary by a keen authority who observed me closely for my entire public service. Thank you to Senator Dick Black for this testimony that cuts through the lies of the slander machine of the Washington Post for this tremendous historical account of my 15 years of service in just 13 minutes (less than a minute for each year)

At the Five Minute Mark:

SENATOR DICK BLACK:

STOPPING THE MEALS TAX IN LOUDOUN COUNTY

(quote) "WHEN EUGENE FIGHTS (AGAINST) TAXES HE FIGHTS FROM THE HEART.

AND WE STAND HERE, WE ARE DOING THIS GET TOGETHER IN A RESTAURANT, AND YOU WILL NOTICE THAT OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT EUGENE IS ALWAYS DOING HIS EVENTS IN A SMALL RESTAURANT.

AND THERE IS A REASON FOR THAT.

BECAUSE WERE IT NOT FOR EUGENE DELGAUDIO, WE WOULD HAVE A MEALS TAX.

HOW MANY TIMES, HAS IT BEEN, PROBABLY THREE TIMES THAT THE MEALS TAX HAS BEEN BROUGHT UP?

(DELGAUDIO, THREE TIMES)

YES, THREE TIMES...THREE TIMES THAT EUGENE HAS FACED THE MEALS TAX, HE'S DEFEATED IT. AND WERE IT NOT FOR HIM, YOU WOULD BE PAYING A MEALS TAX AND THIS RESTAURANT RIGHT HERE MIGHT BE CLOSED DOWN TODAY.

AND I APPRECIATE THAT EUGENE (APPLAUSE)

SAVING THE CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS AT THE COURTHOUSE IN LOUDOUN COUNTY

YOU KNOW, EUGENE HAS SOMETHING ELSE THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT. I THINK HE UNDERSTANDS THAT IF HE IS GOING TO RETAIN THE QUALITY OF THIS COMMUNITY, HE'S GOT TO DO IT BY MAINTAINING THE SENSE OF MORALITY AND DECENCY.

AND EUGENE HAS FOUGHT AND HE HAS FOUGHT CONSISTENTLY. HE'S A PRO-LIFE...SUPERVISOR...HE IS PRO-MARRIAGE LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE ALL APPRECIATE...SOME YEARS AGO THERE WAS A PUSH MADE TO ABOLISH THE ANCIENT TRADITION OF HAVING THE CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS ON THE COURTHOUSE YARD...NOBODY COULD EVEN REMEMBER WHEN THOSE DISPLAYS WERE NOT THERE.....THERE WAS NO ONE OLD ENOUGH IN LOUDOUN COUNTY TODAY TO EVEN REMEMBER.....MAYBE THEY HAD THEM 200 YEARS AGO....BUT THEY WANTED TO STOP THEM.

THEY WOULD HAVE STOPPED THEM. THEY VERY NEARLY DID. THERE WAS A COMMITTEE SET UP. IT WAS VERY SMOOTHLY RUN. THEY CAME UP WITH RECOMMENDATIONS. THEY WERE GOING TO DO AWAY WITH THE CHRISTMAS
TRADITION.

ONE PERSON. HELPED BY A MULTITUDE OF YOU. ONE PERSON TOOK THE LEAD AND BLOCKED THAT. AND THAT WAS EUGENE DELGAUDIO. AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT EUGENE. (APPLAUSE)

EUGENE HAS HELD THE FABRIC OF STERLING TOGETHER THROUGH ALL OF THE PRESSURES THAT HAVE AFFECTED US, HE HAS KEPT THE MORAL STANDARDS HIGH....." (unquote)

THANK YOU DICK BLACK FOR THESE VERY KIND WORDS. This kindness and loyalty to our common conservative beliefs are timeless and still fresh today, five years later and forever.
