I want to take this opportunity to congratulate our new chairman Mark Uncapher and his team on winning the election at the annual meeting. While we have different approaches on how to accomplish our goals, I firmly believe that our goals are the same: re-electing Governor Larry Hogan and electing Republicans in Montgomery County.

It is getting close to the candidates’ filing deadline date, which is Tuesday, February 27, 2018 by 9:00pm. So, please, if you haven’t done so already, go to the MD Board of Elections website and download the forms to file for the office you wish to run for. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about preparing for questions you will most likely get, and the right and wrong way of answering them.
By Patrick Spaulding, District 14 Chairman
As we prepare for the 2018 campaign season, the candidates in District 14 plan to kick off their “Fire Up 14” campaign initiative by looking for more direct interaction with the residents. Recently, they have created a new Facebook page titled “MoCo GOP – District 14” in order to reach out to more of the community on a social media platform. Through this page, candidate profiles, meetings, news and other related information is shared in order to help residents understand what’s going on in their community and give them an opportunity to voice their opinions. While the page is still in its early stages, its following has been steadily growing and more people have begun to take notice. Once the New Year rolls in, this tool is bound to become a key factor in keeping the residents informed about campaign progress! Click here to visit the page and remember to like & share with your friends and neighbors so we can continue to grow!
