All Night, Back to work

June 18, 2003

Congratulations to all the students who graduated Park View High School last night and especially to the parents as well.

Over 200 students registered and attended the all night Graudation Party at Park View High School which featured carnival style games, roulette wheels and card games with hundreds of prizes donated by area comunity-minded businesses. I enjoyed hosting the students at the prize table as I did last year and once again the decorations, food and festive atmosphere keeps a great tradition going for Sterling and the graduates of Park View Class of 2003.

The parents, grandparents, business leaders and citizens who volunteer time, money and effort to this effort deserve the gratitude of the community and on behalf of the people of Sterling, thank you all.

Young Person Asks About the Historic Meatball Rebellion

A young person came to me and asked me about the Meatball Rebellion and exactly where it took place. The young person had heard about and knew it was a very important event in the history of Sterling. For those of you who have heard about it and for those of you who need to pass it on accurately, the Meatball Rebellion occurred in October 1998 at That's Amore Restaurant in Sterling, Virginia and it was a popular uprising of citizens working against the Board of Supervisors proposal to tax prepared meals at the rate of 4 per cent. The meatball represented the symbol and the rallying point for residents tired of being force fed a diet of tax increases from Leesburg. 72 per cent of the Sterling District turned out against the meals tax.

Friends of Delgaudio Event Big Success

Need More Help

The scheduled Republican Unity Celebration went off extremely well at 6:30 p.m. at Jimmy Gs restaurant with Bob Gordon, candidate for chairman, and Republican nominees for Supervisor Bruce Tulloch. (Potomac District), Lori Waters, (Broad Run), Steve Snow (Dulles), Mick Staton (Sugarland Run) and for Commissioner of the Revenue, Bob Wertz present. Former Chairman candidate Larry Beerman was honored as well for his campaign efforts. Forty Sterling residents cheered the candidates as Supervisor Delgaudio, as master of ceremonies introduced each of them and then each of them made laudatory comments about Supervisor Delgaudio and gave updates on their own campaigns.

Other Republican Nominees or leaders who could not attend but have attended previous Delgaudio for Supervisor events earlier in the campaign season or have presented checks and written signed explicit endorsements include Republican National Committee member Morton Blackwell, Republican Central Committee members Debbie Taylor, Anne Keast and David Ray, Senator William Mims, Loudoun County Treasurer Roger Zurn, Delegates Richard Black, Bob Marshall, Tim Hugo, Gary Reese and Tom Rust and Republican-endorsed School Board members Tom Reed, John Andrews and Warren Guerin.

DEADLINE FOR REPORTING JUNE 30

Friends of Delgaudio collected $1500.00 from the event. Delgaudio announced a June 30 deadline for a financial report required by the board of elections. Please write your most generous check today and send it to Friends of Delgaudio, P.O. Box 1222 Sterling, Va. 20167 to improve that financial report and help make it possible to get our conservative anti-tax message out.

Channel Three TV news and other newspaper photographers came to the event and were welcome. The Washington Post again reported about my opponent's race against me in Monday's editions of the newspaper.

Thank you to all of you who have already sent money in the mail. And to those of you who will send money, thank you also. Please do it today. You can bet the LIBERALS will act against Sterling based on how little or how great our bank balance is.
