Fighting for Montgomery County, Md

News Corner


By Dennis Melby

Today, Monday April 15 is the Day. Write the check and mail it in – the government thanks you.

If you pay taxes, do you think they’re spent well?

  • Public Education
  • Public Safety
  • Military Defense
  • Social Services
  • Debt Service
  • Salaries of those we elect

Lots of folks don’t think we get the bang for the buck. In this county most of our money goes to funding public education, yet our professionals always tout that next year will be better, next year we’ll spend more money and finally get great teachers and more great administrators who’ll be able to close the forever gap between poor performing kids and those who excel (a gap that doesn’t exist in non-government schools).

Another big pot goes to public safety. Yet people don’t want to be Cops. Many in the government don’t support them – and government officials are torn between defunding the police and paying premiums and signing bonuses to attract people to work for a non-supportive government. Quite a quandary.

You've Waited All Year to Hear Tom Homan

Tom Homan, former ICE Director

Montgomery County unfortunately seems to be the epicenter of serious crimes by illegal immigrants, a sanctuary County which was determined not to turn lawbreakers over to ICE. Former ICE Director Tom Homan will share his opinions on solutions and how we got into this mess to begin with. MoCo is in the news for all the wrong reasons - he'll tell us how to right the boat.

Mid MoCo Muster - April 2024

Surely with divine guidance, our Founding Fathers created this grand experiment in representative self-government. But they had no illusions about how profoundly difficult it would be to maintain.

Threats and intimidations, the hallmark of totalitarian regimes throughout history are in evidence today at all levels of our government and society.

We will catalogue some of these instances and discuss ways of fending off the tyranny. As part of that discussion we will of course talk about specific election year tasks at hand.

As usual, we hope you can arrive in the 6 O’clock hour and order some food and/or drink. We will begin the formal presentations at 7pm.

Please join us on third Thursday evening, April 18th, from 6-9pm, in the private side room at:

La Mexicana, 16143 Shady Grove Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20877
