This coming January, some of us will be watching with heart-felt pride as legislators come together in the Maryland State House to be sworn into office. Article I, Section 9 of the Maryland State Constitution says that “Every person elected or appointed to any office of profit or trust, under this Constitution or under the Laws made pursuant thereto, shall before he enters upon the duties of such office, take and subscribe the following oath, or affirmation: “ I … do swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States; and that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the State of Maryland and support the Constitution and Laws thereof; and that I will, to the best of my skill and judgment, diligently and faithfully, without partiality or prejudice, execute the office of …….according to the Constitution and laws of this state…” A very solemn promise, to be sure.

Josephine Wang is waging an energetic campaign this fall, pushing for changes in Montgomery County. Her strong suit is education, and she is not only concerned about school safety but also promoting education funding for non-public schools that would give parents more of a choice about where their children go to school.

Its that time again when you can’t go a block or two without seeing a political yard sign. Here are some things to remember: we will see tons of illegal signs, signs in the median, in the right of way, along the beltway and other illegal locations. There are two things to remember: 1. Don’t get annoyed by seeing all the illegal Democrat signs. 2. Don’t complain about them – It’s just a sign of the season.
