Guest Appearance by Phil Rusciolelli

"Some Signage is down right Discriminatory"

Two years ago The Board of Supervisors approved the placement of displays on the Loudoun County Court House Grounds. I respect a decision to allow citizens to petition and freely express their beliefs at the Court House particularly during periods that celebrate their beliefs. However, there appears to be an abuse of this policy in that some petitioners have through their displays and signs flagrantly discriminated against Christians and other Citizens of Faith. Would we allow signs that denigrate race, gender, or sexual preferences to be placed on our Court House lawn--.certainly not.

So why in the name of freedom of speech do we allow displays that mock a religious preference. This is not freedom of is nothing less than discrimination, and I implore the Board to immediately adjust an approval policy that permits discriminatory displays that mock a religion, and only seek to denigrate another's belief. These types of displays should not be approved since they appear unlawful and prejudicial against a religious group, and I would contend a vast majority of Citizens of Faith in this county. Thank you ---Phil Rusciolelli



This is why Comedy Central uses my materials for the past 20 years.

Robert sent this to me(!). Thank you Robert. " Verizon discontinued its dial-in time and weather services. However, Keith Allen, the meteorologist who ran the weather service, has found a new sponsor. You can access the service at 202-589-1212. I have an old telephone with speed-dial buttons." (I called it and it is quite refreshing)


A random letter from a grateful constituent. THANK YOU FOR THANKING ME.

Thank you very much for your efforts on our behalf. Specifically, I would like to thank you for any encouragement you gave the right people to fix the road/curb at the end of (NAME OF) Court in Sterling which has been an icy hazard in the winter because it didn't drain correctly. They came this month and fixed it. My husband had written you back in the spring and right away someone came to assess the problem and then promised that probably in the summer it would get done, so now the job is completed, right before the cold weather is upon us. Thanks again.
