MEALS TAX DEAD FOR NOW

Thanks to you, the thousands of subscribers to Sterling American, the board reversed itself and voted against supporting the Meals Tax by a vote of six to three. Volpe, Reid, Delgaudio, Clarke, Higgins, Buona voted to oppose the Meals Tax Board position and three voted (again) yes to the Meals Tax position: York, Williams, and Letourneu.

Delgaudio, Del. Ramadan, Senators Herring and Black have said repeatedly they will not vote to give Loudoun authority for a meals tax for various reasons including 70 per cent of Sterling has voted three times against it.


The board voted to endorse asking Richmond for authority to impose the Meals Tax earlier. Now six supervisors have voted to not impose the Meals Tax. This is thanks many of you and to your efforts. Thank you.

Book Signing For Sterling's Author of Authors


Conservative Radio Host and Loudoun's Own Top Conservative Icon Mark Levine will be signing Ameritopia books (his new critique of socialism) at the Tysons Corner Barnes and Noble store from 12 noon to six p.m. today. Usually he stays until the last book is signed and last time he was there to 8 p.m.

"AMERITOPIA" is on the Times best selling list. Of course, I will be there for 2 hours as a salute to the many Sterling residents who always go.

1,000 Cheer FRANK WOLF BIRTHDAY

Local News Story: One Of Many About Wolf Hunger Reduction Program.

I call it the Frank Wolf Hunger Reduction Program. Frank Wolf together with Mark Gunderman and many other volunteers working to feed 4,000 hungry people in the Sterling-Herndon area. Using private funds and leftover food they have performed many deliveries of privately paid for food through LINK. I will be writing a lot about this fron now on.

A short report follows.

The Sunday Examiner ran an article on Congressman Frank Wolf that I thought you'd enjoy. Congressman Wolf was instrumental in passing legislation that specifically permitted schools to donate food to LINK and other food banks. Gundersman, a Loudoun Citizen of the Year (Sterling's Roger Zurn, Chaplain Charlie Grant and Gunderman share the titles)is meeting teachers at Armstrong Elementary School Wednesday morning to get the program rolling.
