HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

>>>> DELGAUDIO RESOLUTION OPPOSING 7 TAXES PASSES

Today at the board meeting I condemned all the new taxes being imposed through traffic fines and legislation from Richmond.

I reminded my fellow members of the board of supervisors that at the last meeting they voted to impose a $250 million debt by endorsing and signing on with Metro rail. I said these new fines, taxes and debts would impact Sterling.

I introduced a resolution putting the Loudoun Board of Supervisors in opposition to these seven new taxes imposed by legislation passed in Richmond and signed by the Democratic Party Governor.

The resolution passed 9 YES, Zero Opposed.

Mick Staton introduced and I seconded another resolution asking the county attorney to be ready to join legal opposition when the first lawsuit is filed. It also passed unanimously.

Loudoun County stands against the seven taxes. These taxes can be imposed upon us without our permission, but at least you know the county supervisors have agreed to fight them.

>>> THANK YOU FOR SAYING HELLO

Great to see many of you this past weekend. I hope to see some of you Wendesday if possible.
