Fighting for Montgomery County, Md

News Corner


Yesterday's assassination attempt on President Trump was a horrible reminder that our social fabric is fraying. LIke you, when I first heard of the shooting I prayed for his safety.  Our prayers were answered.

He is a strong man, he is a fighter, and someone we're about to nominate to retake the White House in November. Our GOP Convention in Milwaukee will change, not the great party we've been looking forward to but a more somber and serious effort to rescue this country from the chaos and divisiveness of the last four years.

In sadness there is hope. We grieve for those killed and injured.

We still pray.  We pray for the energy to make change happen, the ability to support our great candidates who will carry out the change, and the resourcefulness to convince our fellow Marylanders, and fellow Americans, to join us in our efforts to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

God bless America.

The Montgomery County Council continues its efforts to ignore what its constituents believe are the best policies for our county. Two issues of concern will have a hearing on Tuesday, July 16, at 1:30

  • Term Limits. We are close to getting the necessary 10,000 signatures certified for the 2T petition. This amendment would change from three to two the number of consecutive terms that a County Executive can serve. The Charter Review Commission recommended a counter proposal that thus far has not been taken up by the Council, but the session is not quite over so we need to be vigilant. We will have several people speaking IN FAVOR of the term limits petition.
  • Property Taxes. Currently increases in property taxes can only occur with a unanimous vote by the Council. However, the Council will be discussing a proposal to lower the requirement to two-thirds, or eight out of the 11 members of the Council. We will have several people testifying AGAINST this proposal.

Please come to the County Council to lend your support for those testifying on the 2T petition and the property taxes proposal. The hearing is at 1:30 pm on Tuesday, July 16, at:

Council Hearing Room (Third Floor)

100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville, Maryland 20850

Here is a link to the agenda for that day, since these two items will not be discussed right at 1:30pm:
