Common Sense Voices for Montgomery County

Pledge to Bring Balance to County Government

Five County Council candidates who won the July Republican primary have banded together to advance commonsense policies to improve the lives of all Montgomery County residents.  The Republican nominees are running to represent the newly designed Council Districts 2,4,5,6,7 and are calling themselves “Common Sense Voices for Montgomery County.”  

They are busy listening to residents’ stories about schools, children and livelihoods that have suffered from the consequences of bad policy decisions, especially during the COVID pandemic, made by County Executive Elrich and the County Council. In many cases county officials have advanced extreme national policies instead of good governance practices and improving the delivery of pubic services, such as water, sanitation, traffic and roads, and jobs to help families and workers. 

Common Sense Voices for Montgomery County pledge to:

  • Improve public safety by supporting the police in neighborhoods and in schools;
  • Support parents’ rights in education and programs that help working families finance new homes;
  • Promote green spaces and oppose the Master Plan Thrive 2050 as written; 
  • Recognize that the county operates within a system of regional competition so to attract investment and good jobs the county must improve its reputation as anti-business and cut taxes and regulations.
  • Grow the small business economy, maintain school buildings, and work with regional partners to minimize traffic congestion. 

Each has pledged to manage county resources according to the county’s motto “Gardez Bien” (Guard Well) which has been ignored in recent years.

District 2 Nominee: Dan Cuda

District 4 Nominee: Cheryl Riley

District 5 Nominee: Kate Woody

District 6 Nominee: Viet Doan

District 7 Nominee: Harold C. Maldonado

Labor day 2022 Message

Ronald Reagan said “On this occasion, let us also remember the freedoms and the sacrifices that have made our abundance possible. We are heirs to a precious legacy, one that has taken centuries to build, and we must forever recognize that its preservation and increase are our glad task and solemn responsibility,” 

 Enjoy the day with friends and family, the end of summer is here before you know it.

But remember, our National, State and local governments need a change in leadership. We've got great candidates and the incumbents are doing poorly. They're relying on the registration stats to pull them through one more time. But single party government hasn't served us well.

Four more years of a decline in public safety, a decline in reading and math scores, a decline in civility of both sides makes it harder to recover from inflation, international upheaval and domestic unrest.

You have hope, contact one or our great candidates and volunteer to do what you can. They need you, we need you and our once thriving community needs you.

Its Labor Day Lets go to work!

Republicans back the police

Republicans Show Up to Support our Police

Martha Hale, Sandy Tuttle and Patsy Dillingham coordinated a great turnout for our Back the Blue celebration of the officers of the 2nd District in Bethesda. We're so supportive of the job they do for our community and they deserve our thanks and respect. We plan to thank all the local Districts again this year, like we did throughout the pandemic and the previous 2 years. Check this space to join in our commitment of thankful celebration of our law enforcement officers and staff.


Keep the Momentum Going!
