Members of the Maryland House Republican Caucus have announced a four-point list of their legislative priorities for the 2019 General Assembly. This initiative reflects the caucus’s determination to not just react to the proposals of others but advance its own agenda.
House Minority Leader Nik Kipke (R-Anne Arundel) explained that his caucus wants to ensure that the issues of concern to the nearly 2 million Maryland residents it represents are heard in the Democratic-controlled legislature.
Josephine Wang and I went to the Governor’s Lunar New Year party last week and we were able to give our congratulations to him and his lovely wife Yumi on being chosen by the voters to spend four more years in Annapolis. I’m quite proud of him. I hope you have a chance to send him your congratulations on our attached ‘Congratulate the Governor’ page Click Here. He loves getting notes and encouragement.
This January is momentous in Maryland
It’s been almost 60 years since we celebrated the
Re-election of a Republican Governor!
Larry Hogan and Boyd Rutherford were rewarded for four years of hard work and success with an overwhelming mandate for another 4 years, and we could not be happier. We often rail about the lack of empathy, the lack of cooperation, and the pettiness of so many of our elected officials.
Governor Hogan has shown a different way. Governor Hogan has proven that you can arrive at common ground, you can disagree without being disagreeable, and you can bring voters from all parts of our very diverse state together for our common good.

Abraham Lincoln famously defined a hypocrite as the man “who murdered his parents, and then pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan.” What then are Montgomery County residents to make of their County Council’s latest lamentations over the affordable housing shortage?
The Future of Schools and Roads Dominate Political Discussion at the Committee for Montgomery’s Annual Legislative Breakfast
By Linda Willard
Dennis Melby, Alex Bush and I attended the Committee for Montgomery’s Annual Legislative Breakfast on December 13, 2018. Key speakers included Senator Chris Van Hollen, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro, State Senator Craig Zucker and Delegate Mark Korman (LD-16).
On January 16, 2019, Governor Lawrence J. Hogan will preside over the inaugural events that mark the beginning of his second four-year term as governor of Maryland. He was overwhelmingly re-elected to a second four-year term on November 6, 2018, receiving the most votes of any Maryland gubernatorial candidate, and becoming only the second Republican governor to be re-elected in the 242-year history of the state.
Happy New Year!
I look forward to working with you all as we face the challenges and opportunities of a new year. The Republican Party in Montgomery County is 130,000 strong and together we can accomplish great things. While the challenges that lie ahead are daunting, they are by no means insurmountable. We are in the midst of revamping our organizational efforts and re-connecting with other groups that have similar goals. So, with your help, we will be ready to seize these opportunities and face these challenges as they come.
