Please put this on your calendar -- to join fellow Republicans at the county party's annual convention on Saturday, March 25 at the Rockville Hilton.
The convention will be from 8:30 am to 3 pm with a VIP lunch at 12:15 pm. Our VIP Luncheon speaker is Congressman Bill Posey of Florida who was instrumental in reforming Florida's election laws that made the recent Red Wave there possible.
Admission is $25 for both the morning and afternoon sessions and $100 for the VIP lunch, a major fundraising effort for the party. Admission for sessions and lunch together is $125. We strongly advise everyone to sign up for both in advance at mcgop.com.
What to expect at the morning session: After you arrive and check in, make your way to the hall and look for the sign for your Legislative District. That is where you should sit. Your convention badge should show the number of your LD.
Our speakers will focus on "Defending Freedom" nationally and locally with Master of Ceremonies Larry O'Connor of WMAL invited; Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch; Yukong "Mike" Zhao of Asian American Coalition for Education; Maryland Republican Party Vice Chairwoman Nicole Bennet, and a special panel.

Romper Room and Ranked Choice Voting
Romper Room and a Primer on Ranked Choice Voting (“RCV”)
By Stacey Sauter
(This is the first article in a periodic series to be explored on this topic)
Does anyone out there remember the nationally-syndicated TV show Romper Room? I certainly do. And if I could momentarily borrow Miss Nancy’s “Magic Mirror” and ask which one of you “Do Bees” fully understands “ranked choice voting,” I imagine the hands I’d immediately see popping up are among voters in the People’s Republic of Takoma Park – presently the only jurisdiction in Maryland to use it. Is it any surprise that Takoma Park’s favorite son, socialist County Executive Marc Elrich and his merry band of Democrat Do Bees, are pushing our state legislature to adopt RCV, or alternatively an “approval method” of voting throughout Montgomery County?
Working for a Congressman
I cannot explain the amazing privilege I feel every day working in Congress. Not only do I have a job where I can provide for myself, but one with perks completely like no other. I have a 24/7 badge that allows me to admire the beauty and craftsmanship of our Capitol and I give tours to my boss’s constituents so they too can marvel at the history and architecture.

All Central Committee members are expected to attend in-person at MCGOP HQ
