The Good Delegate Scott Lingamfelteron June 17th, 2012 at 12:38 PM
When I graduated high school I got into party politics in Prince William County, after playing a part in the Gilmore Gov. Election I was how you would say hooked. I met a lot of great folks in the beginning, and being welcomed into the Republican Party was somewhat shocking as I was told by others that blacks were not welcome into the GOP. I was pleasantly surprised. At the behest of at the time School board representative Lyle Beefelt I joined the PWC Committee where I met many of the players of Northern Virginia. I was more than star struck to meet everyone, from Congressman to Supervisors, and shortly after those running for Supervisor, many of who sit on the board to this day.
I dug in and made myself part of the team even running one of the campaigns of a candidate running for Supervisor which became a huge learning experience. During this campaign I got to know Delegate Scott Lingamfelter. Delegate Lingamfelter and I became instant friends and turns out our views are very much alike on several things, and frankly no one besides the candidate I was working for Scott Hirons, and Sean Connaughton made me feel at “home in the party” as much as Delegate Lingamfelter did. I want everyone to know from personal experience this is a man who loves his God, Served and loves his country and loves Virginia as much as I do. When I heard he was going to run for LT Gov for Virginia, after my initial shock, it turned into excitement, Excitement more so for Virginia and that two of my favorite people we running to take the Commonwealth even higher, A Ken Cuccinelli and Scott Lingamfelter ticket would be great and exciting for the future of Virginia.
On a personal note, I want everyone to know, no elected official has been so responsive and as much of a mentor to me as Delegate Lingamfelter. His sage advice is something I take with me to any political event, use in any political or life decision and I would encourage all of you to research and consider this Patriot, great human being and even greater American as your next LG – Terrence Boulden
