Millions of Tax Dollars Spent on "Anonymous" Numbered Vendors
By Reardon Sullivan, P.E.
Many of us know “Anonymous” as an activist and hacker group that perpetrates cyberattacks against governments, government institutions and government agencies, that is unless you live in Montgomery County.
Here in Montgomery County, anonymous unknown vendors have received over 25,000 checks totaling almost $160 million dollars of taxpayer money. That is about $150 for every resident in the County.
As all organizations must do, the Montgomery County government maintains a register of all the checks they write to vendors, individuals and other business associates. Download the Montgomery County checkbook to see how many venders are listed with just a number and not a name. Download MoCo checkbook here
A quick look at the persons and groups that have received checks from the County will show over 25,000 checks totaling almost $160 million dollars were written to anonymous, numbered vendors with no name. When we asked who these anonymous vendors are, we were advised in writing that we could not be given that information because “ … the department doesn’t want the names disclosed because of the client privacy....” See the e-mail below.
Don’t we the taxpayers deserve to see where $160 million of our taxes are going?
Just think where $160 million dollars might come in handy in your community, maybe your schools, roads, or reduction of your taxes, just to name a few options.
I urge you to take a few minutes to download the Montgomery County checkbook and spend an hour seeing where your tax dollars are going. You will be surprised. Remember, your vote is “Anonymous” when you go to the ballot box.

Henry Kissinger, perhaps the most consequential U.S. diplomat of the 20th Century, was a frequent speaker at the National Press Club stretching from the 1970s into the 21st Century.
His death Wednesday, Nov. 29, at the age of 100, sparked renewed assessments of his controversial tenure as the top foreign policy strategist for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford and as an unofficial adviser to subsequent presidents.
As a member of the Club's speakers' committee during the 1990s, I arranged several luncheons featuring the former Secretary of State. His appearances were always sold out, often controversial and always colorful. Love him or hate him, there was no denying his "star" power at luncheons and numerous book events. READ MORE HERE>

The Montgomery County GOP Central Committee stands in firm support of Israel in its fight against Hamas-sponsored terrorism, plus the battle against anti-semitism here and abroad. Each week we will continue to remind our readers about the hostages held captive until they are all accounted for and safely returned home. Please keep them in your thoughts, conversations, and prayers. "Never again" is now.

Thank you for this opportunity to testify. My name is Amy Waychoff and I have lived in Montgomery County for 36 years.
I oppose Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) for many reasons. Just look at Arlington County’s experience during the primary election this year. They used RCV, but then abandoned it for the general election primarily because the process is so confusing. According to the Board’s Vice Chair,
“There are a whole lot of people where maybe their second votes never count,. . . Maybe I don’t completely understand it.”*
Opportunity for Your Teen (high schooler) to Co-Lead or Participate in a TPUSA Youth Group! United Against Racism in Education (UARE) is excited about forming a chapter of Turning Point USA (TPUSA ) in Montgomery County, MD. We have one teen leader, but need two more to co-lead this group. This is a fabulous leadership building experience for the right student who loves our country and her values! The TPUSA organization was founded by Charlie Kirk in 2012. This non-profit/non-partisan group empowers students through the pro-American values that make America special. Our chapter will bring together young people to have fun, bond with like-minded teens, develop leadership skills, and be educated about the importance of limited government, free markets, and freedom.
