Dr. Politics: Debate/Form Prep

By Dwight Patel

Okay, 2018 candidates, right now I’ll bet you’re feeling a lot like I did after I signed up to run for office in 1994 and was looking forward to some no-holds barred debates against my opponents. In fact, I had saved up some great one liners for former Del. Henry Heller, Len Teitelbaum and newcomer Andria Mandel. Del. Petzold had moved up to run for State Senate that year. (Remind me sometime to tell you a great Del. Petzold story).


Why We Need More Republicans, and Republican Women, to Run for Office

By Liz Matory

When fellow Republican grassroots advocate Brigitta Mullican recently asked me if I knew anyone who wasn’t currently a candidate, who would be willing to give women advice about running for office at an upcoming event, I said I would be willing to do so.

In fact, I had reservations about re-entering potentially hostile territory, but I thought that my experience as a Democrat, independent and Republican candidate could be helpful for the women in our county.

According to Democratic Comptroller Peter Franchot’s report, over two million Marylanders will receive a Federal tax cut that averages $1,741 annually. Every Maryland Democrat voted against the legislation.


Opioid Crisis Response? MoCo Legislators Back State Sanctioned “Drug Dens”

By Mark Uncapher

Earlier this month, Brian Griffith broke the story in Red Maryland of “Democrats and Heroin Houses.”[1]  At issue is the favorable action of a Maryland State Senate Committee on legislation to allow so-called “Supervised Drug Consumption” facilities to “provide a place for the consumption of pre-obtained drugs, provide sterile needles, administer first aid as needed, and provide certain other services.” [2]

The proposed law’s protections for “pre-obtained drugs” is worth further explanation.  It protects the possession of illegal drugs from prosecution.
