REALTORS BACK DELGAUDIO

The Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® (DAAR) has endorsed your Sterling Supervisor, Eugene Delgaudio for re-election.

"Each of the candidates endorsed by our association has demonstrated an understanding of the issues confronting the county," Chairman Talbot said. "These candidates offer voters the opportunity to elect a Board of Supervisors willing to put the long-term interests of the county and its residents instead of the special interests of a very vocal minority. Our members look forward to working with the new Board of Supervisors to help ensure that Loudoun County maintains the highest possible quality of life for all its current and future residents."

Thank you, DAAR. Note: our former Planning Commissioner, the late A. Tim Page, was a member of the DAAR.
