Fighting for Montgomery County, Md

News Corner

ANGRY DEMOCRATS

All week I've been getting phone calls and emails from angry Democrats. They're so upset that The Committee for Better Government has delivered the first set of petitions to limit the Montgomery County Executive to two terms. The first set with almost 13,000 signatures, with thousands more to come.

I calm them down, and tell them yes - there's still time for them to sign. After all, most of the signatures are from Democrats and Non-affiliated, but so many folks thought they'd lost their chance to sign.

No, there's still time. You'll see signature collectors at grocery stores, at community events and local fairs and festivals. Now's your chance to treat the County Exec like the US President and the MD Governor, and most of the other Maryland County Executives - two terms (2T).

But sign when you get a chance, you don't want to be left out of the list. And thanks for all the 2T Committee, their volunteers, collectors, neighbors and friends for making this happen!

THE REPUBLICAN HOLIDAY OF JUNETEENTH

On Wednesday we celebrate the great Republican holiday of Juneteenth.  

Our party was founded to put an end once and for all to slavery. We were opposed at every turn by the Democrats and ended up in the depths of a horrible civil war, costing more American lives than any other conflict, but we prevailed.

When President Lincoln put forth the Emancipation Proclamation it took the troops to put it into effect. Juneteenth was the last date that the last state got the word out about freedom. It wasn’t even realized right here in the Montgomery County area until about that time.

We’ve made such great strides since the Republican party started us down this road, but the battle isn’t over. There are folks that have expanded their hatred toward every skin color, race and religion - and we have to be vigilant.

But today we thank Lincoln, Douglass and so many Republican founders for setting us on this road. Happy Juneteenth!
