Sterlingfest Saturday

>>>STERLING IS ORANGE

Thank you to the many houses with orange Delgaudio signs on their front yards. Thank you to those of you writing checks and sending them into me. The Democratic Machine is taking some of our signs but they are quickly replaced. If you see any of our signs being stolen please report the theft and get some new signs up right away.

Strangly, some in the media continue to attack the many proposals being passed or considered by the board as both unnecessary and hurtful and a complete waste of time and get this "not much". Their pages are filled listing the new policies, legislation and new ordinances. Their own reports seem to contradict them about the direction this county is going in. Loudoun county supervisors are now involved in foreign and national policy concerning illegal aliens.

And of course, citizens continue to enthusiastically support increased penalties for overcrowding, the deporting of alien criminals in our jails, and ending $50,000 in taxpayer payments to La Voz, the illegal alien lobby.

You want more leadership like this? Re-elect me and you will get it.

>>>>>STERLINGFEST THIS SATURDAY

Time: Saturday, October 6 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

After unfortunate, inclement weather issues that hindered the success of the last two years (2005 & 2006), SterlingFest 2007 is back this year.

This is the 20th anniversary of SterlingFest. The event, which first began in 1987, is held each year in the Fall and draws 5,000-8,000+ visitors, usually from Sterling Park community's families and businesses, as well as surrounding areas including, Herndon, Ashburn, Cascades, Sugarland Run and CountrySide.

The festival is located on Enterprise Street and Commerce Street in the heart of Sterling Park. The Friends of Delgaudio table will be at number 78 and will have pens, lapel stickers, fans, kit kat candy bars, yard signs and friendly volunteers.

I need you to wear an orange Delgaudio sticker. I need you to help me place a lapel sticker on supporters. I need you to hand out our literature. Or just stand with us and greet voters.

>>>>TAKE VIRGINIA BACK FROM THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS
Friday October 12, 2007

Please come and bring at least 20 dollars Friday, October 12 at the next Delgaudio fundraising event at SANTINI's New York Style Deli from 6 to 8 p.m. Thank you. Make your biggest donation ever. The Washington Post will be outraged. The liberal League of Women Liberals will huff and puff and steam up. Thank you again.

The liberals in the news media are pouring on the attacks. This represents millions of dollars in unreported assistance to my opponent. And the Washington, DC Post is driving activists from all over the region to oppose me. I can not match the millions being spent against me. I just need to get my winning message out. I only need $50,000 more to fund my budget to win. I have planned victory with your help 2 times before. This is the 3rd time and we can beat the Middleburg financed Scott York-dominated media machine.

What: Delgaudio Take Back Virginia Party with pizza, soda and salad

Who: You and 100 others

Where: Santini's Deli, Clocktower, Route 7 next to Burlington Coat Factory
