John R. Feegel (R)

Age: 39.

Residence: Purcellville.

Education: BA, Holy Cross College; attends Georgetown University paralegal program.

Occupation: Former magistrate, 20th Judicial District, Supreme Court of Virginia; substitute public school teacher.

Elected offices/civic activities: Volunteer, Loudoun Abused Women's Shelter; volunteer, under-10 soccer coach; member, Knights of Columbus; member, Sons of the American Legion.

Family: Married; two children.

Why should the voters elect you?

"Loudoun voters must choose who will better administer Governor Gilmore's car tax phase-out plan (47.5 percent in 2000): a Republican or a Clinton Democrat. The governor trusts my judgment and intellect. A pro-family and pro-business public servant, I embrace fiscal conservativism and share citizens' desires to preserve Loudoun's natural beauty. November's choice is between an active revenue commissioner ready to provide friendly 'customer service' assistance to taxpayers or an incumbent bureaucrat dependent on Richmond to handle income-tax filings. I work for the taxpayers--not the government. The choice is clear. For Loudoun's future--vote John Feegel, Republican."

What would you like voters to know about you?

"Senator John Warner, governors Gilmore and Allen, Delegate Joe May, Senator Bill Mims and Congressman Frank Wolf all ask you to vote for John Feegel."
