Image Building at the Montgomery County Liquor Control Department

By Patricia A. Fenati, Candidate for State Delegate, District 14

An August 5th article by Jennifer Barrios in The Washington Post states that Montgomery County is planning to introduce a bill in the 2019 Maryland General Assembly to change the name of Montgomery County’s Liquor Control Department to the Beverage Services Department. Changing the name is thought to better indicate the new focus of the department and hopefully improve its image. The change in focus is the key direction of the new director of the department, Robert Dorfman, who was appointed to this position in late 2016.


Blowing Smoke: Ben Jealous’ “Pot for Pre-K” Numbers Don’t Add Up

By Mark Uncapher, MCGOP Chairman

While running to be Maryland’s governor, Democrat Ben Jealous has regularly promised:

When I am governor, I will finally pass universal pre-K in Maryland. How will we pay for it? By legalizing, regulating and taxing cannabis for adult use.”

Both on the stump,[1]on his website[2]and as recently as an August 20 press call,[3]Jealous has repeatedly made this “Pot for Pre-K” campaign promise.

The Odd Couple

Quasi-socialist Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous skipped last weekend’s Maryland Association of Counties meeting in Ocean City, one of the “must show” days on the political calendar, to be in Frederick where multi- millionaire congressional candidate David Trone was handing out campaign funds, specifically, promising that he was “…stepping up financially to work with everybody in all our races.”


Our Volunteering Experience at the GOP Booth at the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair

By Yin Zheng

On our first day serving at the GOP booth at the fair, my daughter encountered two little sisters. They ran by and one said, “Look, the GOP table!“  The other girl responded, “Run, they are going to kill you!” 

This is how political freedom has been taught to our children in modern times. Isn’t it true that the beauty of America is that we can have different views, and people can choose to support their chosen party to promote checks and balances for the benefit of our people and country? No wonder I had a hard time convincing my daughter to wear a volunteer t-shirt with the MCGOP logo on it.

A Paradigm Shift in Montgomery County Politics

By Ryan Gniadek*

In Maryland at-large, the upcoming election will be the most consequential in half a century. The opportunity to re-elect a Republican governor for the first time since Theodore McKeldin in 1954, directly prior to the redistricting process no less, will have an impact far beyond Maryland. Above all, the implementation of fairly drawn congressional districts will likely give Republicans 2-3 extra seats in the House of Representatives, which could prove pivotal to maintaining future control of the House.


Brian Frosh Abuses Maryland Attorney General Office with Subpoenas of Political Opponents

By Mark Uncapher MCGOP Chairman

As Maryland’s attorney general, Brian Frosh has used his office’s investigative powers to advance his own personal, ideological agenda.  While Attorney General Frosh is certainly entitled to his own personal opinions, he abuses his office’s power by directing its considerable prosecutorial authority at specifically targeting those he disagrees with politically.
