While county leaders wait to see what, if anything, results from the work of a special prosecutor and reports of a recently empanelled grand jury probing allegations of misconduct by Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R), Loudoun Democrats are helping to mount a recall campaign to unseat the four-term Sterling District representative.

Delgaudio has been the subject of a special investigation since October, after a former aide provided information to The Washington Post that she was told to call political donors and set up meetings with Delgaudio. The work allegedly was done while the aide was in the county government center in Leesburg and on county—and taxpayer—time. She filed a complaint with the county’s Human Resources department, including allegations of a hostile work environment. This week, the Post reported that two individuals had confirmed they were summoned to the courthouse Feb. 5 when a special grand jury was formed to review evidence in the case along with Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos, who was appointed in November as a special prosecutor.

A group called Sterling Deserves Better yesterday announced plans to hold a meeting Saturday at the Sterling Library to launch a Circuit Court petition seeking a recall election. The announcement describes the new organization as “a group of concerned citizens in Eugene Delgaudio’s Sterling district.”

The message was sent out by a member of the Loudoun County Democratic Committee and the newly created www.sterlingdeservesbetter.com website is registered to LCDC Communications Chairman Andrew Wexton, of Leesburg.

LCDC Chairman Evan MacBeth said the movement is not a party initiative, but said his organization is helping.

“The people of Sterling are the ones who decided we need to recall him. We as the LCDC are providing support to them. This is a decision that was made by the people in Sterling. It is a group that is organically grown out of Sterling,” MacBeth said today. “I think it is going to be an inspiring event for the people of Sterling to have their voices heard."

MacBeth said an important factor in the recall effort was the Board of Supervisors’ vote in January to strip Delgaudio of his committee assignments.

"What happened is that the people who live in Sterling have decided it is not acceptable for Eugene Delgaudio to continue as their supervisor because he is not representing them,” MacBeth said.

The town hall meeting will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at the Sterling Library on Enterprise Street.

Welcome to the discussion.

    If Ca Stamos does not get a felony conviction then all the hyperbole is just that. I'd love to see Stevens Miller run against Eugene think of the fun that would be.

    I almost wish I lived in his district so I could vote against him. Freedom and Liberty for ALL seems to have fallen out of fashion in his camp.
