DELGAUDIO'S THE ONE

October 19, 2003

I am the one. The one you chose to represent you to Leesburg.

Since I was first elected in 1999, I did not let you down.

I have kept my word and pledge. And I have kept up with you by phone, in person, on the internet or by written reports.

I am faithful and loyal and will not let you down.

I will work hard to deliver the services that Sterling needs. And will work hard with others who are equally committed to you and the principles that make Sterling the greatest community in America and the world.

I will stand against the forces at work to density pack development all in one place.

I will work for mass transit solutions that include and are not limited to quick government reaction, developer-funded transit solutions, and private-public partnerships that are building more road miles per day than ever before.

I will work to expose and eliminate millions of dollars in wasteful spending and to vote against tax increases.

I will work with you when you find projects, obstacles or even "just" fallen trees blocking your way.

Together, as Sterling United, we will stand and move to the future where our children and our families will be safe and prosperous.

I have been honored and privileged to be your Sterling Supervisor and will cherish every moment of my first 4 year term.

If this honor you have bestowed on me is to continue, it is up to you to renew my duties by voting for me on Tuesday, Nov. 4 for a new 4 year term. They will be better than the first 4 years, I promise you that.

What Needs to Be Done.

You can write a check. You can help put back up signs that are fallen down, knocked down or stolen by opponents. You can put up your own sign. You can help eat a bagel and drink some coffee at our "headquarters" at Jimmy Gs. You can write down the license plate of a suspicious car seen around our missing signs. You can tell a neighbor about your choice, Eugene Delgaudio, for Sterling Supervisor.

You can arrive prepared to do two hours of work and be part of the final push for victory.

Come to Jimmy G's Restaurant under the Clock tower opposite the Burlington coat factory this Saturday morning, October 25 at 10 a.m.

Saturday, Oct. 25, at 10 a.m. there will be bagels and coffee for you. NO CHARGE. FREE. I do have some campaign work if you can stay for that too. Thanks. If you just want to see some excitement, drop by.

NOT AVAILABLE SATURDAY?

And if you can NOT make it Saturday at 10 a.m. please consider meeting me Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 5p.m. and Thursday, Oct. 23 at 5 p.m. at Jimmy Gs for campaign work. Write me and tell me you can come.

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays

Yes, we will be working Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until Friday Oct. 31. Then we will meet daily at 10 a.m. November 1st, 2nd and 3rd. On Tuesday November 4, we need volunteers starting at 6:00 A.M. TO 7 P.M. That's Election Day!

MEMO REVEALS FREE SPENDING

ACTUAL MEMO CONCERNING BOONDOGGLE PAID FOR BY COUNTY FUNDS.

I have been critical of the millions of dollars going to travel boondoggles by this county government and by a majority of the Supervisors. Supervisor Mark Herring has been to Europe. Chairman York goes to Romania. Supervisor Chuck Harris mocks me every chance he gets whenever he mentions his trips to "Washington,D.C. -- that's a trip outside the county, Mr. Delgaudio".

Of course, Supervisor Harris knows I am critical of trips outside the area with overnight stays at top hotels. Not Washington. It won't break him to skip asking for reimbursements if we zero out the travel budget. Or what is he hiding? Maybe it would break him.

I believe the blanket endorsement, by the board majority, of excessive travel for all county employees is one of the most under-reported wastes of this current government. And Supervisor Harris and a majority see nothing wrong with it. I give credit to some reporters who find $3000.00 restaurant bills. How about all annual air-travel costs outside the county?

BRACE YOURSELF FOR WORLD CLASS WASTE.

Here is the actual text of a memo proving the large scale spending going on. It refers to ten surplus tickets to New Mexico. I received it and you can see for yourself how county funds are used for travel.

(Quote) "Loudoun County has 13 surplus Delta Airline tickets for sale. These tickets are valued at $366 and were written for a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico leaving Monday (10/7/02). To use the tickets for any other flight, the buyer must pay a $100 transfer fee per ticket to Delta. The tickets may be used for anywhere Delta flies and must be used by July 2003.

If you are awarded any number of these tickets, you will need to contact Delta Airline ticketing BEFORE midnight Sunday (10/6/02) to make your new travel arrangements and pay the $100 transfer fee. If you do not confirm new travel arrangements with Delta BEFORE Sunday night, you will forfeit your tickets and your bid amount to the County. If your new ticket price exceeds $366, you will be required to pay the difference. If your new ticket price is less than $366 you will NOT receive a refund for the remaining amount

If you would like to place a sealed bid for these tickets, please submit your written bid indicating your name, address and signature, the number of tickets you are bidding on, your bid price per ticket, and a check for the total amount bid for all tickets. Your bid must be submitted in a sealed envelope marked "Surplus Tickets Bid" to (Loudoun County) before NOON on Friday (10/4/02).

The County will award the tickets to the thirteen highest bids. If your bid is not accepted your check will be returned to you. " (unquote)

Good News

There is now a new curb opposite the McDonalds at the Sterling Park Shopping Center. It was installed in time for Sterlingfest and eliminiates the unsightly parking of cars on the area close to a busy exit and entrance right off Sterling Boulevard. Thanks goes to the owners, Gelman Properties for making a contribution to improving Sterling. ED
