Suzanne Volpe, Republican candidate for Algonkian District Supervisor, held her campaign kickoff event on May 12, 2011 with Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as the featured speaker. AG Cuccinelli noted that Ms. Volpe’s was the only local campaign he had personally made an appearance at this year, thanking her for the work she has done for numerous candidates over the years and saying “I hope you think you are getting a good return on your investment” for all of work she has done for him. He gave an informative progress report on his various efforts to curtail the encroachments on liberty by the Obama Administration and Democrats in Congress (this will be a separate video, I hope one day soon).

With a crowd of at least 150 people on hand and possibly many more – the property was segmented so there was no way you could count everyone from one spot (someone from the campaign can chime in in the comments and I will update the number) – Ms. Volpe pointed out the problems caused by the county’s poor business development policies, with results such as Northrup Grumman’s decision to locate across the border to Fairfax County, and the resulting tax pressure this is putting on residents. She spoke of some of the county’s egregious misuses of taxpayers’ money and her personal philosophy of government that it should be less intrusive and more responsive to the citizens.

Video is at the top of the post, or click here to watch. There are only a few photos because this was the final event affected by camera problems and I lost over 40 pictures (hover cursor for a partial listing of who is in each and click on each for a larger version) – but as far as I could tell every local Republican elected official and candidate was present. It was a massive crowd for a local campaign kickoff, with excellent speeches by our attorney general and by Ms. Volpe- and truly an honor to have Ken Cuccinelli in a local backyard giving an up to the minute report on the battle against the Democrat power grab.

As you can see from the video, if determination, clarity of vision and ability to articulate that vision count in the upcoming campaign, Ms. Volpe is going to be tough to beat for the Algonkian Supervisor position.

Jim Plowman kicked off his campaign for a third term as Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Monday evening in Leesburg. The event packed the back half of the Green Turtle restaurant with a large crowd of enthusiastic supporters, as well as numerous elected officials and Republican candidates.

Jennifer Wexton, former Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney, will be Mr. Plowman’s Democratic challenger in the November, 2011 election.

Mr. Plowman is president of the Virginia Association of Local Elected Constitutional Officers and is a past president of the Loudoun County Bar Association.

Because of the size of the audience at the Green Turtle, estimated at over 100 people, this blogger got nowhere near enough to hear Mr. Plowman’s speech, although later in the evening at the Loudoun County Republican Committee meeting Mr. Plowman stated he would be running a positive campaign.

This is as close as your intrepid local blogger could get to Jim Plowman's speech

I actually did manage to squeeze through the crowd and stick the camera in the air for proof that Mr. Plowman was in fact speaking

On Thursday, March 24, Eugene Delgaudio held a “100th Birthday Party” for Ronald Reagan, featuring guest speaker Pat Nolan, who was a longtime political worker on Reagan’s campaigns and overall a very interesting guy who now works for Prison Fellowship Ministries.

Nearly 110 people had crowded into Santini’s New York Deli in Sterling by the time I left about halfway through the event – I am told quite a lot of people showed up later bringing the total to 150 (many apparently came over after the Dick Black fundraiser the same evening which reportedly had over 270 attendees to hear Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli).

There were a lot of elected officials, candidates and local political figures present; some are in the photos. It was way too crowded to get decent shots of everyone there.
