Board of Supervisors won’t hold Nov. 20 meeting for Delgaudio case
The Loudoun Board of Supervisors will not hold a special meeting Nov. 20 to discuss the ongoing investigation of Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling).
Board Chairman Scott York (R-At Large), however, will lead a “Chairman’s Town Hall” meeting Nov. 20 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. York said he will have a brief opening statement and take questions from the public regarding any topic at that time.
On Nov. 12, York told the Times-Mirror he would call a special meeting Nov. 20 to discuss the process moving forward in the Delgaudio probe. In early October, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to initiate an investigation into allegations that Delgaudio directed staff aides to conduct political fundraising while being paid by the county.
According to a statement from York today, the chairman said he consulted with County Attorney Jack Roberts, who advised that “no action be taken on the Delgaudio matter” until the Arlington commonwealth’s attorney conclude her review.
Arlington Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos was appointed last week by the circuit court to investigate the accusations against Delgaudio from a criminal standpoint; this after the county’s own administrative review was halted, in part because the name of one of the investigators hired appeared on one of Delgaudio’s fundraising lists.
York today stated that, given the current status of the case, he’s asked Roberts to address the following questions: “What is the estimated timeline for the special prosecutor to conduct the investigation? If we move forward with the internal investigation after the special prosecutor investigation, what is the cost of a very thorough investigation and associated timeline to conduct such investigation?”
