RETURN OF MEALS TAX

November 2, 2009

Sterlingfest is this Saturday, October 10.

The Knights of Columbus and 1,000 other parade goers and participants march down Sterling Boulevard at 10 a.m. The parade assembles at Park View High School at 9 a.m. and then marches at 10.

The parade will end at the Barn at Holly Avenue. Sterlingfest is a collection of booths and rides for small children in front of the Community Center on Commerce Street and starts at 10 a.m. with the crowd arriving at 11 a.m. I will be there along with 20,000 other residents and visitors and probably the Democratic and Republican Party tickets for Governor, Lt. Gov. and Attorney General.

Visit me at my booth and I will give you an important quality of life petition (SEE BELOW) to sign and a rubber duck for your child.

Update: No Cars Parked On Lawns Petition

Sterling is has a few cars left on front lawns, back lawns and some homeowners are attempting to make their residential homes into parking lots.

I am starting a "No Cars Parked on Lawns" petition and ask you to sign it at Sterlingfest at my table

It asks the board of supervisors and planning commission to consider your signed support.

THE RETURN OF THE LOUDOUN COUNTY MEALS TAX

The board of supervisors voted to ask Richmond for the power to levy a MEALS TAX on Loudoun citizens by a majority vote of the board of supervisors. I reminded Supervisors that Sterling and every precinct voted "no" in 1998 and 2002 and last year.

Only 3 Supervisors including me, your Sterling represenative, voted NO. The Request to allow the Board to impose a meals tax now goes to Richmond where the legislature will consider it.
