Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, and happy Passover, respectively. I know the many churches are packed. The deputies are helping direct traffic at some of the local churches. Last night I had to call deputies to remove a trailer truck unloading a new car at one church entrance.
>>State Troopers In Sterling

Over 1,000 ornamental pear trees are blooming and there are many other bright colors beginning to flower in Sterling.

I am hosting a Sterling Teen Job Fair Saturday May 2 at the Sterling Community Center from 1 p.m to 3 p.m. Please help me publicize it.

Teens are welcome, along with their parents.

The (first) Sterling Teen Job Fair is on Saturday May 2nd from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Sterling Community Center located at 120 Enterprise St, Sterling, Virginia 20164.

I am inviting you so that you can either refer a company or invite teens 15 years and older who want to work this summer or part time during the school year.

School will be out for the summer and the economy requires an extra effort to find qualified help with companies that are hiring for the summer or part time. And Sterling teens are special.  We want to equip them for the future.

Groups being invited are County Parks and Recreation, the Community Center, Sterling HOA pools, non-profits like Loudoun Youth Initiative, Loudoun business groups, large and small retail establishments and other job related opportunities.  Volunteer and non-profit groups are invited for those who want to volunteer.

You may know somebody that needs a job or a company that needs workers. Let Supervisor Delgaudio assistant Rachel know at 703-771-5819 if you wish to reserve a table. For the sake of security please tell us the name and contact information if you are sending a company representative to the Job Fair. There is a real limit on the tables. There is no charge for the table.

You may reach me by emailing me back and I will get it to Rachel in the Supervisor office. Teens do not have to reserve or call. Just come.
>>>Public Input Session on Selection of Next County Administrator

What kind of county administrator does Loudoun need? Sterling needs someone familiar with the quality of life issues like overcrowding, and cars parked on lawns. It is set for April 22. No more details yet.
>>Loudoun Sheriff's Office announces Women's Self-Defense Workshop is full.

I have heard from some who got into the Workshop as soon as I announced it. The workshop is now full.  
The agency usually holds the free workshops at least two times per year to educate women on sexual assault issues and rape awareness.  The sessions are an opportunity for all women (editor's note: "all" is actually 100 seats) to learn to be aware of their surroundings and how to protect themselves from becoming a victim.

In my opinion, they should hold 4 or as many times as necessary. I am sure Sheriff Steve Simpson would state quite enthusiastically "we don't have money or budget for that". Then Eugene Delgaudio would state "charge a fee". Thank you.

>>>Loudoun to Receive $2 Million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program Funds

Loudoun County has been awarded $2 million through the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) to purchase and rehabilitate foreclosed homes for resale in eastern Loudoun.

The Board of Supervisors has designated three neighborhoods - two sections of Sterling Park and a section of Sugarland Run -- to serve as the focus of the NSP. In addition to the $2 million grant announced by Virginia Governor Tim Kaine this week, the county plans to use $1.3 million of County Housing Funds to address the deterioration occurring in these neighborhoods due to the concentration of vacant, foreclosed properties.

At least one million dollars will be used in the next few weeks in a partnership with a non-profit to buy and renovate several townhouses and ranch style houses by Maple Avenue and South Dickenson Avenue areas of Sterling Park. These houses will then be sold to clients of the non-profit who are citizens of the USA and must live in the house they purchase for five years minimum.
