We Are Making Progress

June 23, 2008

I give you all credit. You are standing with me and saying it loud and clear. Elected officials and the news media are reporting the elected leaders responding to you.

Many of you wrote and came out to the community meetings in May demanding action. Things got WORSE in June and supervisors supported my  call for action and supported legislation in response. Even Sheriff Steve Simpson responded to a worsening situation.

And the board of supervisors is getting progress reports at upcoming meetings on specific legislative actions (abandoned cars, commercial vehicles, high grass, overcrowding)  with July 15 as the legislative deadline set by the Board of Supervisors.

>>> SAVE THE DATE JULY 22

You need to set aside Tuesday July 22 for the community meeting at Park View High School at 6:30p.m. where the county staff tells the public what other recommendations they suggest to the board. I am asking Chairman York to allow for the staff reports, allow for citizen comments, and then allow for supervisor responses just like a regular public meeting!

Loudoun Supervisor Says County In Danger Of Becoming 'Cesspool'
Delgaudio Defends Illegal Immigration Crackdown

Sterling Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio said Loudoun is joining other counties that have begun to check the citizenship of major offenders. Delgaudio told WAMU Radio that the quality of life in Loudoun County is at stake.

"This is a cesspool. People are coming from outside of this culture, and they are dumping their crap on the streets of our town, and our town is outraged that they don't get with the program," he said. "We don't care what language they speak. Sterling Park is highly diverse, highly diverse. Every country is represented in Sterling Park, and that does not mean you treat it like a garbage dump."

Delgaudio said the county sheriff has worked out an agreement with federal officials to pick up illegal immigrants who are
detained.

Tuesday, county supervisors voted to move forward with a plan to allow citizen volunteers to come onto the foreclosed properties and cut the grass.

"I've cut part of it already, so I might do it," said Sherwood.

County Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio said she's already prepared, "I have volunteers standing by, and we have volunteers that have gone out and cut grass for their neighbors."

DELGAUDIO HAILED IN LETTER TO BOARD OF SUPERS
In a letter sent tonight after the NBC News Broadcast tonight, this Ashburn citizen writes:

I applaud your remarks on WAMU, based on the short snippet I heard on NBC4.   The passion you showed is all too rare in this debate, and I support you 100%.  Please keep up the good fight!!  Don't let the race-baiters deter you from making your valid points.  It is not about race, it's about culture and our ability to accommodate this mass of people.
Thanks,  Chris F. of Ashburn

>>> THANK YOU FOR YOUR CANDID COMMENTS

In another letter another supporter says:
Thank you Supervisor Delgaudio for your candid comments today regarding illegal aliens trashing Loudoun County. I too have seen first-hand what these thugs have done to the once proud community of Sterling Park.

It is the unprecedented cowardliness of the Loudoun Board of Supervisors over the last twenty years that has stood-by and allowed the county and the community to be over-run with people that have an absolute contempt for the rule-of-law in our country.

It is high time your peers on the current BOS stand-up for the LEGAL citizens of Loudoun County. My family has the inalienable right to reside in a country/state/county/community of LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS. ---- Mr. B.


>>> MARK KNOWLES OF STERLING HAILED IN LETTER
>>> MOWS NEIGHBORS LAWNS (we know there are more out there)

In a letter to the Homeowners Association, a former Sterling Park homeowner salutes Mark Knowles, "Two years ago my husband and I sold our home in Forest Ridge and moved........We recently learned that the wonderful home on Applegate Dr. that we sold is now vacant and in foreclosure .....

We also learned that our former neighbor Mark Knowles is weekly mowing the lawn of that property, and that of another house on the street. ...  he is taking the time and going to the expense to mow 2 extra yards.  I know that Mark is doing this to maintain the quality of life for him and his family, while helping to maintain the community.  I think he deserves a thank you from the community and the county for saving both the expense of caring for additional vacant properties."  FROM L G formerly of Sterling Park, OK so here it is THANK YOU MARK KNOWLES, YOU ARE A HERO.

>>> RESTON LIBERAL SALUTES DELGAUDIO?

(Quote) While I don't agree with a lot of what Supervisor Delgaudio has to say, I have to say that he is spot on with his remarks on this topic. (unquote)  Vickie of Reston, VA along with 18 other favorable comments posted on the NBC TV News website.

On Sunday night about 11:40 p.m. the Sheriff's office is reporting this: Loitering: Loudoun Deputies responded to the area for a large crowd in the parking lot at the listed location. Loudoun Deputies then contacted the Office of the Fire Marshal for possible overcrowding violations at Pepe's Place restaurant.

The business was cited for overcrowding and placed on a temporary restriction of their business license by the Office of the Fire Marshal. The business will be closed for approximately two weeks. Agents from the Virginia Department of Alcohol Beverage Control were contacted for further investigation of possible alcohol violations.
