Letter to the Editor: Just Cause Evictions Ill-Advised

By Harvey Jacobs Candidate for State Delegate, District 15

We are writing in response to the Local Opinions Dated August 19, 2018 entitled “Landlords in Montgomery should have to give just cause for evictions” by Matthew Losak.

The legislation Mr. Losak refers to (House Bill 995) was withdrawn by the Montgomery County Delegation last March as an Ill-advised usurpation of private property rights, among other deficiencies.  This bill, sponsored by the all-Democrat Montgomery County Delegation, would have prohibited landlords from non-renewing residential leases, absent a showing in court of “Just Cause.” The bill enumerated 11 vague circumstances that would constitute “Just Cause,” allowing a landlord to either evict or refuse to renew a lease at the end of its stated term. 


My Political Life

By Patricia Fenati Candidate for State Delegate in District 14

It was not typical for a woman to major in math in the 1960s, nor was it typical for a woman to serve president of the student body at a co-ed college. But there I was, the first female Student Government President at Jacksonville University graduating with a BS in Mathematics … And there I was again in New York City, working in the burgeoning computer industry, where I was usually one of only a handful of women in the room. But I loved what I was doing, which throughout my career included programming, consulting, sales, teaching and network simulation for large businesses, military and government agencies.


Dr. Politics: What You Need to Know About Events

By Dwight Patel

Just because you send out an email to 1,000 people about your fundraiser doesn’t mean they will actually show up.  In this issue of Dr. Politics, we’ll do a recap on the topic of Events.

When you’re having a fundraiser, you need to do a couple of things in the era of modern campaigning.  One is to send out email invitations to prospective attendees. But don’t stop there.  Take your event to the next level by creating a FB event and inviting your FB friends.  You aren’t done yet – Just keep going.  You’ll tweet out your event to your followers as well and have them re-tweet your event.  Contact your party organization to email your invitation to their lists in your district. 


Sometimes It Takes a Mom

By Martha Schaerr Candidate for State Delegate, District 19

In raising seven children, I’ve thought about principles and have created rules that Annapolis needs to apply to make government work better for everyone.  I’m running to help Annapolis—and especially Governor Hogan—move Maryland in that direction.

One of these principles is fairness.  Our family rule that “the person who cuts the pie gets the last piece” prompted very careful cutting and equal-sized pieces.  In Annapolis, however, a few pie-eaters cut and choose their pieces first.

Ben Jealous Has Finally Jumped the Shark with his Sales Tax Proposal

By Mark Uncapher, MCGOP Chairman

Those with a good political memory will recall Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry’s claim that: “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it."    The comment captured in amber a politician’s cynicism in trying to evade the truth and in trying to have it both ways on an issue.

Image Building at the Montgomery County Liquor Control Department

By Patricia A. Fenati, Candidate for State Delegate, District 14

An August 5th article by Jennifer Barrios in The Washington Post states that Montgomery County is planning to introduce a bill in the 2019 Maryland General Assembly to change the name of Montgomery County’s Liquor Control Department to the Beverage Services Department. Changing the name is thought to better indicate the new focus of the department and hopefully improve its image. The change in focus is the key direction of the new director of the department, Robert Dorfman, who was appointed to this position in late 2016.


Blowing Smoke: Ben Jealous’ “Pot for Pre-K” Numbers Don’t Add Up

By Mark Uncapher, MCGOP Chairman

While running to be Maryland’s governor, Democrat Ben Jealous has regularly promised:

When I am governor, I will finally pass universal pre-K in Maryland. How will we pay for it? By legalizing, regulating and taxing cannabis for adult use.”

Both on the stump,[1]on his website[2]and as recently as an August 20 press call,[3]Jealous has repeatedly made this “Pot for Pre-K” campaign promise.
