Give Me Liberty Or.......

April 14, 2004

I want to invite you to my Spring Celebration on April 17. I am reminding you that I can not carry on this campaign without you.

I know it is raining today, but Easter was great and it will warm up again. I need your help to get our work done.

Call me at 703-421-4599 to be part of the fundraising event for my re-election campaign on Saturday, April 17, 2004 at 4 p.m. at Santini's (formerly Jimmy Gs).

PATRICK HENRY COLLEGE HONORED.

Few people know of my devotion to the early American patriots. As a fourteen year old I had a young conservative chapter named after Nathan Hale. And Paul Revere was another favorite (The Red Coats are coming!). But the 3 time governor of Virginia (before the one term limit) Patrick Henry ("....give me liberty or give me death.") is the most confrontational and is the name patriots most revere.

Delgaudio and Supervisor Waters have requested that staff prepare a Resolution of Appreciation for Patrick Henry College, which is preparing to graduate its first four year class.

Opening its doors in the fall of 2000, Patrick Henry College trains Christian men and women, both home-schooled, private schooled and public-schooled. According to the school's mission statement they "will lead our nation and shape our culture with timeless biblical values and fidelity to the spirit of the American founding."

Because of Patrick Henry College, students from across the United States come to Loudoun County to earn degrees in government, classical liberal arts, history and literature. Many of these Loudoun County residents will go on to serve with distinction in government.

Patrick Henry College will now graduate its first four year class of such leaders on May 15, 2004.

And the number one resolution for the board of supervisors on Tuesday, April 20th, at 9:30 a.m. sharp is a recognition of this 4 year colleges reaching the first four year class. President Mike Farris will accept the honor.

FOREST RIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS

Right now Eugene Delgaudio is trying to work with Washington Gas and the Loudoun County Public Schools on restoring the common lands around Forest Grove Elementary. The property was dug up during construction of the school to install utilities and has yet to be restored. Residents are complaining about the state of the property, standing water and flooding, so there is an effort to try to get the common lands restored.

Washington Gas has said that the part of the land they are responsible for is in the VDOT right-of-way, and they will do the improvements.

DELEGATE DICK BLACK TAKES A STAND AGAINST TAXES

In response to a writer asking Dick Black if he would betray him and vote for a tax increase, Delegate Dick Black said:

"I want you to know that I am with you, and that I will never betray you. Every day, I see men who compromise principle for personal advantage. This is particularly true in politics and especially so regarding the tax debate. But I will not compromise on principle. It is not in my character to do so.

When I was 21, I fought as a lieutenant in the 1st Marines. We held a ridgeline called Nui Loc Son. Most were killed or wounded defending the ridge. Every man was prepared to die in order to hold his position. Many did. That experience gave me a stoic, self-sacrificing perspective that is different from most. It taught me the kind of loyalty that doesn't end--even if you're the last man standing." WOW.

DELGAUDIO FUNDRAISING AGAIN?

WHERE WILL YOU BE?

Still eating Easter chocolate. It is time for variety in your diet and to dig into salad and pizza. Okay, maybe just take a short break from eating jelly beans, gummy bears, boiled eggs, malted balls, little marshmellow chicks, chocolate coins, eggs and bunnies.

Please visit April 17.

I need to catch up with you and maybe you can spare some time to help me do that.

To replace the money spent on two newsletters that have been sent to 12,000 voters (95 percent of my expenditures are in the newsletter) and to help pay for the next newsletter, my re-election campaign committee is hosting a Spring Celebration, Saturday, April 17 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Santini's Restaurant (formerly Jimmy Gs) in the community plaza shopping center under the Clock Tower.

The organized left in this Loudoun County has millions to spend. Their Middleburg accent fills the board room. "Remove Delgaudio" they shout with a refrain. Even now, today, they plot new measures to increase spending, taxes and regulations. They use taxpayer funds from a variety of sources including but not limited to federal, state and other "non-governmental" sources. Their slush funds make our penny jars look quaint by comparison.

THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF PIZZA, SALAD AND SODA FOR YOU AND YOURS ON APRIL 17.

The following major celebrities have announced their intention to show: former planning commissioner Dimitri Kesari, Northern Va. GOP anti-Tax Activist Jim Parmelee (most often quoted conservative) and several former Loudoun Supervisors and past and current office holders.

Please take the time to donate anything from $1,000, to $15, depending on your resources, and the intensity of your feelings that we need to preserve the interests of the residents of Loudoun County.

THE ADDRESS TO SEND CHECKS is Friends of Delgaudio, p.o. box 1222 Sterling, Va. 20167.

Of course, bring the check or mail it, it is a good time to get together since the last event in December was a lot of fun.
