DELGAUDIO VOTES NO ON TAX INCREASE

Follow up and correction

There were four separate votes on my motion. This is a routine parlimentary separation that is favored by traditional conservatives in Loudoun County and most of the continental United States.

The first vote was on the budget, i.e. the items we would spend money on this coming fiscal year. Supervisor Buona voted no. That was Buona, Delgaudio, Volpe "no".


The second vote was to set the tax rate, which is necessary to collect the money, which is used to pay for the budget that had just been approved in the first vote.

The vote on the tax rate of $1.20.5 was 4 to 4, which was a tie. (Delgaudio, Volpe, Buona, Reid "NO")

You cannot have a tie. So, Supervisor Buona changed his vote to an abstention, which then made it 4 to 3, which meant the tax rate was approved. (Delgaudio, Volpe and Reid were recorded as "No", not Higgins)

I have posted the official record of all 4 votes here at this link

I need YOU to help me pass out flyers in Sterling walking door-to-door. But first let me get some breakfast with you. Eating first is always fun.

Please let me know by return email at eugenedelgaudio@erols.com if you can join me for breakfast. Thank you.

This electronic newsletter is just one way we get the word of liberty out to our fellow Americans. Not everybody is on this e-mail list (contrary to legend).

The Liberty message is that we shall not allow Sterling to be a target for any one who want to tear us down and that is why we are visiting our neighbors.

Too often the good news of Sterling is ignored by some liberals in Sterling, in Loudoun and the Washington region. We get a brief plug. Thank you.

On the other hand, the major news media JUMPS on "Sterling" bad news if it is ANYWHERE NEAR STERLING, Virginia. Even if its a "former Sterling resident". I will not allow this to go unchallenged.

But I need your help. Don't let the liberal Sterling-hating slanderers get away with their wrongdoing and libel against our peaceful and loving community.

Here are the details:
