Will Volpe Have Any Opposition?

By Loudoun Insider

Suzanne Volpe has finally put up a website, which is pretty bare bones – no specifics whatsoever.  As bad of a candidate that I think she’ll be, it looks like she’ll be unopposed for the LCRC Algonkian Supervisor nomination.  A couple of names were floated at one time, but let’s face it, with the Black Brigade in ascendency again at the helm of the LCRC, and it being centered in that district, no one in their right mind would challenge BB Queen Volpe for the nomination.  It’s a losing proposition.

No one has come forth for the Dems yet, and their bench there is razor thin.  School Board Chairman John Stevens was rumored to be considering it, but he seems to have his hands full with “his” Educate Loudoun PAC with  John Wood.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Wood convinced Stevens to stay out of the Supervisor race since he is backing a number of Republicans this year and having Stevens remain as School Board Chairman suits the PAC. 

 Interestingly enough, Suzanne Volpe gave $1,000 to Ralph Buona’s (Woods’ VP at Telos) campaign, who hardly needed the cash as the biggest supervisor fundraiser this past quarter.  Her fellow social warrior Eugene Delgaudio only got $250 from her, with no other local donations.  I didn’t realize Volpe had so much cash to give out this year, you would think she would be saving it for her own campaign.  The big donation to Buona is odd.

    I think she’s a great candidate. Her commitment to public service while represenating the ideals of efficient, limited government will make her a terrific Supervisor for the Algonkian District.

  • Looks pretty clear that Suzanne won’t have any opposition for the nomination. And your right, the Dem bench is weak, which is one reason why I think Volpe will win. The other reason is that she has the full LCRC machinery at her beck and call. Whatever she personally may lack as a candidate may well be made up for in the kind of campaign she can run. She has the contacts, and she can get the money and volunteers. In other words, she is, whether anyone wants to admit it or not, a formidable force.

    God help us all if Volpe wins. She is one the main reasons of the LCRC disfunction. Volpe is toxic and one manipulative screwed politico and I’m not being complimentary.

    Where are all those LCRC members who cannot stand Volpe and trash her all the time??? Cat got your tongues (or fingers I should say)? I guess that Volpe to Buona donation shut them all up for the duration of the campaign.

    With Buckley’s endorsement and assistance, a Dem should easily be able to win this district. I think the Dems have people who can beat Volpe … they are just not looking hard enough.
