I support Tom Rust for Delegate. I have policy differences with Delegate Rust. But he responds to Sterling's needs. His opponent, Stevens Miller, tells Sterling residents to ignore illegal aliens, protests when citizens ask for new arrivals to keep up standards and votes to raise taxes, spending and regulations. Mr. Miller charged that bigotry was a motivator and condemned "bigotry" on the part of Sterling's most devoted citizens. Please answer him on election day.

Mr. Rust has paid strict attention to the crime issues and the illegal alien problem. He has also been generous with his charitable and corporate donations to Sterling-based efforts.

I support Bob McDonnell for Governor and helped him gain statewide office as early as 1988. I am sure no one is surprised he is intelligent, dedicated and hard working. He frequently visits Sterling. Bill Bolling has been capable Lt. Gov. Sen. Ken Cuccinelli has been a tornado force for conservative values since taking office as a Senator. He has defended conservative values in the courtroom, in the Senate and in the public forum with a tremendous and robust energy.

In October 2008, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Crime Prevention Unit took to refocus their existing Neighborhood Watch Program. The new program focused on preventative education, access to timely crime information, and empowering the public to become involved in their community. The goal of the unit was to take the existing 22 watch programs and grow the overall number of watches to at least 100 by the one year anniversary, October 2009.
