First Deaf Truck Driver in Maryland Advocates for Deaf Community

By S. Alexandra Tuttle

I first met Charles “Chas” Wirick over two years ago when he came to a Legislative District 18 meeting.  During this event, I noticed that Chas had a device with him that recorded everything.  At first, I was taken aback as to why he was using it, but I quickly learned that he had been profoundly deaf since birth and could not read lips.   Most importantly, I soon discovered his reason for attending that meeting.


Gun Violence Week

By Bill Richbourg

During the week of May 5 – 12, there was a veritable explosion of gun control events in Montgomery County. First, there was an educational lecture aptly named Finding Common Ground followed by events sponsored by two local organizations, Moms Demand Action and The Interfaith Gun Violence Prevention Network. The next day we noticed that there was a Gun Violence Prevention Forum sponsored by Congressman David Trone, who represents western Montgomery County’s 6th District.


The Majority of Young People Are Marching Toward Socialism in America. Don’t Blame Me for That!

By Dennis Melby

These days, it appears that the majority of young people in America are marching toward socialism. But don’t blame me for that.  When I was in college, I was elected Student Body President at Montgomery College.  It was enlightening.  Like most students I was fairly liberal, but since I was a Republican, I was always suspect in many eyes.


Potomac Women’s Republican Club Celebrates Historic Milestone

By Julie Krieger, President

The Potomac Women's Republican Club (PWRC) turned 60 last year and wanted to celebrate this milestone in their history by giving back to the community in a meaningful way.  They decided to create the PWRC-Jean Roesser Scholarship, an annual award to be given to an area high school junior or senior for college expenses.  The PWRC thanks students at Churchill High School and Wootton High School for their outstanding submissions this year.  Participating students wrote a 400 to 600-word essay and addressed the prompt selected by the Scholarship Committee.

Montgomery County Council selects Kathy Gugulis and Christopher Danley to serve on the County Charter Review Commission for 2020

Rockville, MD 

Every two years, the County Charter Review Commission (CRC) completes a review and report suggesting potential Charter amendments.  This is critically important for upkeep and management of the Montgomery County Charter, created in 1968.  It also determines much of how local politics is governed.  The members of the Charter Review Commission are appointed to four year terms, by the County Council, and it is split between Republican and Democratic appointments, and a limit of 6 appointments may be made from the same political party.  The County Council made two new Republican appointments this season, Katherine Gugulis and Christopher Danley. 


Chairman’s Message, Can We Get to Work Now?

By Alexander A. Bush, Esq., Chairman, MCGOP

I'll Say it Again -- No Collusion!

Pundits on CNN & MSNBC may cry, but this is what you and I already knew: 19 lawyers, 40 FBI agents, 500 search warrants, thirty million dollars, and 500 witnesses ago.

A massive, two-year national distraction that weakened America’s standing on the international stage. Can this finally be over, and can we get to work now?


What to Expect from the New Minimum Wage Law in Maryland

By Patricia Fenati

In the 1980’s when my teenagers wanted spending money of their own, they found jobs after school and during the summers. They worked in our town in pizza shops, the local movie theater, vegetable stands and as life guards. Minimum wage in those days was under $5.00 an hour. 


How YOU Can Help Spread our Ideas

By Gail Weiss

A year ago, after the 2018 General Assembly session ended, where many others and I testified against horrible bills that would have, among other things, made Maryland a sanctuary state, I felt the desperate need to celebrate, socialize and simply be surrounded by fellow conservatives.  And today, I realize more than ever that I needed to counter the toxic barrage of living in Montgomery County among the pink-hat-wearing leftists.


Montgomery County District 14

My name is Pat Fenati. I am the Republican District Chair of District 14.

So much media attention is paid to the election of the federal offices of President and Congress that many voters don’t know much of anything about district where they live. Can you define the boundaries of your state district?
