Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

[UPDATE - Video just updated, new link]

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.

Bob Wertz, Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue, had a crowd of about 75 people at the magnificent Merriweather Manor near Leesburg last week for his official campaign kick off. (Thanks to owner Andrew Wright for the amazing venue!)

Having managed a business in Loudoun County for over 5 years, I can attest to the fact that our Commissioner of the Revenue office is a model of government effectiveness and efficiency – as I explained in this post. On top of that, Bob Wertz fully understands the importance of making Loudoun a business-friendly county, and his office is a pleasure to work with. As Bob states, “Besides cutting expenditures and accounting budget, expanding the commercial tax base is the only way we’re going to be able to reduce the taxes on people’s homes.” Hear, hear.

Bob does have a Democratic opponent in November, so if you want to ensure that the Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue office is run by someone who brings continuous improvement and understands the importance of economic development in the county, click here for Bob’s campaign Web site.

Below is the video of Bob explaining the duties of the Commissioner of the Revenue and what he has accomplished since first being elected in 2004. (Click here to watch the video at YouTube.)
