>>>COUNTY PASSES RESOLUTIONS TO HONOR REAGAN

The Board of Supervisors unanimously passed resolutions that I prepared for
consideration honoring Ronald Reagan. A Resolution set a Public Hearing for
July 13 to consider naming a Loudoun county building, school, road, park or
other facility in honor of the former President and the third resolution
commemorates February 6th, Reagan's birthdate, as a special day in Loudoun.

Letters have been published or circulated attacking the idea that Loudoun
County should
join in the national honoring of this conservative hero. Others have writen
in asking for their local school or park to be named after Ronald Reagan.
If you agree it is a good thing to honor Reagan this way please write
bos@loudoun.gov today. Or go to the public hearing on
Tuesday, July 13.

>>>>>>New Anti-Crowding Codes

The Board of Supervisors voted 9 to 0 to send new building code regulations
to the
July 13 Public Hearing in Leesburg at 6:30 p.m.

These anti-crowding regulations limit the number of people per square foot
in residential structures. It is important to note, as published in several
interviews (see below) all me to point out that these new rules DO NOT
DEFINE FAMILY and do not limit families in any way. A copy of the rules are
available online at

http://inetdocs.loudoun.gov/bos/docs/businessmeeting_/2004_/060104_/item09cproposed/office2k/office2k.htm

The technical title follows: (quote) Land Use Committee Report:
> > Propossed Amendment to Chapter 1410 of the Codified Ordinances of
> > Loudoun County, Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code to adopt
> > Section 404 of the International Property Maintenance Code to enable the
> > enforcement of occupancy limitations in dwelling units. (unquote)

For several years, I have worked for community support and team work on a
range of new laws dealing with parking and crowding. Last year, the new
residential parking regulations cover 15 new descriptions of violations.
The crackdown on large commercial trucks in residential areas have resulted
in this problem disappearing. Now, this new Building Code will attempt to
address another component of the problems we are facing in Loudoun and I
ask for your support in the form of letters, comment or feedback.

Send letters to me for testimony at eugenedelgaudio@erols.com or write all
nine of the supervisors at bos@loudoun.gov (note: new address:
bos@loudoun.gov reaches all supervisors)

>>>PART-TIME JOB FOR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ANNOUNCED
>>>Officers of Election Needed, $100 Is Yours

I recently found out that there is a real shortage of Republican Party
representatives at the polling places. Virginia law requires one
representative from each party in equal numbers at the polling places. So
if you can, your county and the Republican party needs you. Anyone can
apply but there is a real shortage of Republicans.

The Electoral Board is charged with conducting the elections in Loudoun
County. As such, they need 600 Officers of Election for each election in
this county, about 20 more in Sterling alone. The Presidential General and
Special election is scheduled for November 2, 2004.

You must be a US citizen and registered to vote in Virginia.

The polls open at 6:00 AM and close at 7:00 PM and as an Officer of
Election you must be there from 5:00 AM until the polls close, the results
called in and all equipment packed and ready to return to the Office of the
General Registrar.

The pay for the day is $100.00 for the entire day, $50 for a half day (see
online for details on that) plus $15.00 for the training session. The
training session deals with both general knowledge and setting up and using
the machines in an election. All officers are expected to attend a
training session prior to the November election.

If you have any questions, please contact Dianna Price, Secretary of the
Electoral Board at 703-777-0548 or by e-mail at dprice@loudoun.gov.

AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN DO THIS.

>>ANIMAL SHELTER HAS NEW NAVY
>>PURCHASES BOAT?

There was a great deal of discussion regarding the purchase of a BOAT for
the Shelter Staff at the last Citizens Advisory Meeting. A citizen member
says " I get the impression there are probably some bass fisherman who are
behind this(sic). The rationale is that it could be used for water rescue
of animals who fall through pond ice, and similar situations. The various
reasons for this purchase (seem to be) very contrived and vague. No one
apparently has any water rescue training. No one seems to know how the
boat is to get off its trailer and into a farm pond which has no ramp."

The Citizen member writes "The project is a boondoggle, and I look for the
boat to be declared surplus....it was explained that the boat was in the
approved budget, and was to be purchased ASAP anyway. I think they were
looking for some support for an insupportable project." (Citizens provide
oversight and their observations are critically important.)

Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling), chairman of the
Finance/Government Services Committee said the following "The joint meeting
following the regular meeting of the board of supervisors on Tuesday, June
15 was extremely productive as the first item was "Sheriff's Auxiliary
Unit/Report". We were fully briefed on this program, as I requested.
And there was agreement and direction given by myself and other Board
members to expand the Sheriff's Auxiliary and to prepare a change in the
charter to allow that as soon as possible. My goal is that there should be
no waiting period for anyone wishing to volunteer," said Delgaudio.
