Statement by Sharon L. Cohen to the
Montgomery County Council Regarding the Charter Review Commission’s 2018
Recommendation and the Minority Report Recommendation
July 10, 2018
Good afternoon. I am Sharon Cohen, a life long resident of Montgomery County Maryland. I serve on the Executive Board of the Montgomery County Republican Central Committee, but I speak solely on my own behalf today and in strong support of the Minority’s Report recommendation that, “now is the time to consider changing the make up the County Council by having more smaller and more responsive council districts.” Yes, now is the time to eliminate all At-Large County Council seats and then redraw the nine Councilmatic seats to represent contiguous, smaller, similar and like-minded communities.

Maryland’s Democratic nominee for Governor Ben Jealous’ signature issue has been imposing a single-payer health plan on the state. Unfortunately, the media and his fellow Democrats largely avoided addressing the staggering price tag of “Jealous Care” during the primary. However, the more they hear about Ben Jealous' extreme and risky proposal, the less likely his candidacy will play well with everyday Marylanders.

Don’t want to say I told you so, but in light of the official Socialist takeover of the Democrat Party once again, Republicans must fight (metaphorically and politically) to conserve our constitutional republic.
Happy Independence Day, Patriots! But at the rate this country is going, this may be the last 4th of July we can all celebrate without feeling like it’s racist or bigoted just for celebrating this great nation. Over the past few years, we have seen an amazing degradation of not only political discourse and rhetoric, but also the diminished knowledge and appreciation for what it means to be an American citizen.

After eight days of early voting and the final contest on June 26, the primaries in Montgomery County have ended. The massive number of campaign yard signs at polling stations was unprecedented and impressive. For County Council At Large alone, there were 33 Democratic candidates. It's astonishing how many people at the early polling stations appeared to be canvassing more votes than voting, and the panorama was extraordinary.

When a local news magazine reported on June 27th, "This is not the year of the woman in Montgomery County,” here is what Gail Weiss wrote in response to that well-known Bethesda publication.
Yes, on the Democrat side it apparently was not the Year of the Woman in Montgomery County!

We had our primaries in Maryland this past Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Although most of the candidates didn’t have a primary in Montgomery County, we did have a few and there were even more across the state. It sucks to lose, but we need to be a unified force and stand together with our nominees. Remember, the most important thing in 2018 is that we RE-ELECT GOVERNOR LARRY HOGAN to an historic second term as a Republican governor of the Great State of Maryland and help ensure the success of the Drive for Five initiative by the MDGOP. This isn’t about YOU. You need to reach out – this goes for the winners too – all of you need to make an effort to reach out to your opponents’ supporters and make them feel welcome in your camp.
Thank You All
What once was an Election Day sprint has turned into a marathon with the introduction of early voting. Our MCGOP and Republican campaign volunteers rose to the occasion and deserve praise and recognition for getting our Republican message of common sense government out during this primary season.
We could not have had the resources to do so without the help of many individuals and organizations:

Any Montgomery County voter looking for traffic relief will not get much hope from the transportation manifestos of Montgomery County’s “progressive” Democrats this primary season. Collectively, they all try to outdo each other in their opposition to anything involving spending for roads.
