Victory Thanks To YOU

June 15, 2005

Congratulations to you for your voting.

Thank you for helping Bob McDonnell for Attorney General and Bill
Bolling for Lt. Governor. They both won the Republican Nomination
Tuesday. Jerry Kilgore won the Republican nomination for Governor.

Two other Delegate Candidates won two seats previously occupied by
liberal Republicans who are now retired or defeated. Chris Craddock won
a overwhelming victory over entrenched incumbent Gary Reese. Michael
Golden won the spot vacated by big-tax and spend RINO Jim Dillard. Now,
Craddock and Golden must run for election as Delegates in the Fall as
Republican nominees in Republican-leaning districts.

Here are vote totals

C S Craddock* 2,611 66.15%
G A Reese 1,336 33.85%

M J Golden* 2,359 73.56%
W A Finerfrock 848 26.44%

*Winning candidates endorsed by Delgaudio and Sterling Americans

Chris Oprison ran a solid challenge but lost. Perhaps now Mr. May will
not vote again for a tax increase. Chris said "I congratulate Delegate
Joe May for his victory and wish him the best of luck in Richmond as our
representative."

Vote Totals
J T May 2,974 59.80%
C G Oprison 1,999 40.20%

Steve Chapman ran an uphill campaign against liberal Republican Harry
Parrish. Mr. Chapman shows promise, like Oprison, for the future when
the respective office holders vote to increase taxes again or retire.

Vote Totals
H J Parrish 1,936 54.84%
S H Chapman 1,594 45.16%

Together with your help Loudoun is on the road to adding one additional
conservative Delegate, Chris Craddock, to complement anti-Tax Delegates
Bob Marshall and Dick Black.

>>>>>SCHOOL BOARD ADOPTS NEW POLICY
>>>>> Unanimous Board Bans "Advocacy of Illegal Acts"

The school board unanimously passed a policy banning the advocacy of any
illegal acts. I attended the school board meeting as they worked until
midnight Tuesday night. 18 parents and young people spoke up in favor of
a strong policy and 8 political activists demanded "free speech" to
subvert traditional community values at will and without restriction.

Warren Guerin introduced several amendments. Some were defeated by one
vote margins. Two were strengthened, amended and passed. Other
pro-family amendments which were narrow were defeated by 1 or two votes.
All the amendments added additional restrictive language and guidance to
administrators and teachers on play policies.

In the end, the School Board directed the school system to conduct
themselves in the same manner that they conduct themselves in the
classroom as a matter of established policy, in the matter of theatrical
plays. This elevated the entire topic from the gutter and eliminates the
practice of allowing anti-family community disrupting outside forces
using the school system for their own purposes.

The school board needed a policy to prevent the abuse of the schools. A
bland and meaningless policy dealing with just one brand of illegality
would have been piecemeal and possibly open to challenge. By broadening
a prohibition against "advocacy of any illegal acts", it strengthens
enforcement and protects against legal challenge and addresses other
anti-family or anti-social topics besides the recent pro-homosexual play.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR MANY EMAILS. THANK YOU FOR GOING TO THE MEETINGS.
THANK YOU FOR THE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THANK YOU FOR STANDING FOR
STERLING. THANK YOU FOR STANDING FOR LOUDOUN.
