Yes, Woodbridge Democrats, you get a primary, too. There’s Hilda Barg’s anointed successor Frank Principi. Then there’s George Delimba, a former PWCDC Chair much reviled for what he did to the local party when masquerading as it’s leader. The race between Frank Principi and George Delimba can pretty much be summed up in the warring letters to the editor in the Potomac News. From today, we have this letter about Principi as Hilda Barg’s sock puppet:
Frank Principi describes himself as a Conservative Democrat, but when you look at his voting record over the past six years it outlines that he is indeed a conservative — a conservative who has not voted in a single Democratic primary. Yet he does and has voted in the Republican primaries.
How can a man who in the past voted in Republican primaries suddenly call himself a Virginia Democrat?
The only thing Woodbridge will get from Frank Principi is Hilda Barg’s proxy vote in the supervisor seat. We, the residents of Woodbridge need a full abdication of Hilda Barg’s reign in Woodbridge.
Delimba comes to the race as a two time failure in his bid for the House of Delegates, having been crushed in 1995 and 1999. In 2003, as chairman of the PWCRC, Delimba was involved in a scandal where the slate of candidates was blatantly fixed for the Dumfries Town Council, and then whined in a letter to the editor in the Potomac News that those who loudly complained weren’t “true Democrats”. The infighting that resulted ensured at “Team Democrat” lost in the succeeding election by roughly a twenty point margin.
So Woodbridge Democrats, rejoice. You have a choice between someone who is going to pander to developers just as Hilda Barg has, or a power-hungry perennial loser with questionable ethics.
