MichaelHiggsI am so excited about our Montgomery County Convention coming up on Saturday, February 8 at the Gaithersburg Hilton from 8am – 12:30pm.

We have several fabulous speakers lined up, and it’s going to be a great event.  The Convention is free to attend, so please invite your friends and neighbors to join us as we receive legislative updates from Annapolis, a thought-provoking keynote from Commissioner Rothschild, reports on the activities of the Central Committee, and more!  This is a wonderful opportunity to network with fellow Republicans from your community during the District Caucuses.

This is also a great opportunity to meet many of our wonderful Republican candidates.  In attendance will be several candidates for Governor, Congress, State Senator and Delegate, and County Council.

In addition to the free Convention events, we are pleased to welcome Sheriff Jenkins from Fredrick County for a VIP Breakfast  and an enlightening discussion of law enforcement and immigration issues facing our state.  We are also pleased to host a VIP Luncheon following the Convention featuring RNC Committeewoman Ambrose, Commissioner Rothschild and more; the intimate setting is certain to make for great conversation.

There is still time to register as a candidate for office for the November elections.  The deadline for registration is February 25.  If you are considering a run, please send me an email; I would love to meet with you to talk about the resources available to assist with your campaign.

For any potential candidates, campaign managers and treasurers, the Central Committee will be holding our second Candidate’s Forum at the MCGOP headquarters on Saturday, February 22 from 11am to 2pm.  Our last Candidates Forum attracted several candidates for the Senate, House, County Council, and even Congress, and was well reviewed by all in attendance.

2014 is shaping up to be a big year for Republicans across the country, and we need your help to make it a big year here in Montgomery County as well.  I look forward to meeting with as many of you as I can over the coming weeks and months as we work to end the Democrat’s stranglehold on power.  Thank you, and God Bless.

Michael Higgs,

Montgomery County Republican Chairman
