Convention Delegation from our County

So many of our fellow Republicans worked hard to support our Republican Party’s Presidential nominee at the GOP Convention this year. Whether their names appeared on the 2020 Primary Election ballot or as Central Committee members at our MDGOP 2020 virtual convention they were chosen for the great duty and honor of confirming incumbent President Donald J. Trump’s second election nomination.  They are:

David Bossie, National Committeeman

CD3 - Alternate Delegate, Anne Koutsoutis, MCGOP Central Committee

CD8 - Delegates Ruth Melson and Mark Uncapher

Alternate Delegate, Pat Fenati, MCGOP Central Committee

At-Large Delegates:

Marcus Alzona, MCGOP Central Committee

Amie Hoeber, former CD6 GOP Congressional candidate

Maria Sofia, President of MD Young Republicans (MDYRs)

Josephine Wang, MCGOP Central Committee

At-Large Alternate Delegates:

Michael Higgs, MCGOP Central Committee

Dwight Patel, MCGOP Central Committee

Gail Weiss, MCGOP Central Committee, President Potomac Women’s Republican Club

Although many of us voted for them they’re not able to attend the Convention. Out of an abundance of caution the Party has cancelled the in-person part, scaled it way back because of the Covid 19 crisis we’re all fighting. They’ll probably be doing “virtual” support. We do thank them though, for being in the arena, and willing to take on that big commitment of travel and treasure.  Thank you to the Montgomery County GOP Delegation.


A COVID Election

By Chairman Alexander Bush

Few years in history will be as defined by just a handful of events as 2020. It will be remembered as the year of pandemic, economic devastation, and the 2020 Presidential Election. And if the June Primary Election is any indication of what the November General Election will be like, then we should be very worried.


June 12th Deadline: Apply to Fill Central Committee Vacancies

The Montgomery County Republican Central Committee (MCGOP) is currently recruiting qualified applicants to fill Committee vacancies: one vacancy for Legislative District 19 (Colesville, Leisure World, and parts of Olney), two vacancies for Legislative District 17 (Rockville), and two vacancies for Legislative District 20 (Silver Spring).

Pandemic Lessons Learned

By J. Alexandra Tuttle

During this pandemic, our nation has had nearly three months to reflect on many policies inherited from previous administrations. We have been forced to adhere to draconian ‘stay at home’ orders after our Constitution and Bill of Rights were cast aside. 


I Am Not A Feminist

By Jackie Sackstein

I am NOT a feminist. That does not mean that I think women should be paid less than men or always be in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant.

The Supreme Court Must End Congress's Attack on the Presidency

By Hessie Harris

According to The Washington Post (May 13, 2020), Congress’ alleged reason for seeking President Trump’s tax returns is that they have a responsibility to investigate potential wrongdoing and propose legislation to prevent it.
