Biden Rally Report

I Attended Biden's "I HATE REPUBLICANS" Rally

By Brigitta Mullican

It was August 25, 2022, when I attended the President Joe Biden Rally in Rockville.  I received an earlier email about this rally. I registered to attend. the rally because as an alumnus of Richard Montgomery High School I was very curious about what would be said.  The Democratic National Committee (DNC) rented the high school for the event and being the open-minded Republican that I am, I decided to attend.  I wanted to hear how the President planned to unite the country

During his speech, President Biden referred to me and other Republicans as “MAGA” (Make America Great Again) Republicans” in an offhanded derogatory way.  The President discussed his party and their “values,” and how MAGA Republicans don’t share those values.  I have noticed that he and others in the Democratic leadership often will talk about the “will of the people,” and the importance of the Constitution.  Their actions shows something else. 

 


Candidate Support!

By Dennis Melby

The November general election is less than two months away and efforts are really ramping up for the candidates, including the need for donations and volunteers!  Anyone with Facebook or Twitter has seen the various campaigns posting pictures of their supporters knocking on doors, waving signs and greeting voters at recent parades, county fairs and so on. 

With that in mind, I was struck by a welcome development in what was otherwise a contentious July primary election season.  One of the few exceptions to acrimony was the primary for Congress in the redrawn 6th District, between Washington County State Delegate Neil Parrott and Montgomery County's very own investigative journalist Matthew Foldi.  They were among the few candidates to actually embrace Ronald Reagan's famous 11th commandment - Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican - especially their opponent.  For the most part this was as respectable - dare I say "adult" - campaign as we have seen in many years, with each focusing on the issues and the Democratic incumbent - and not each other.

Meet Missy Carr

Candidate for State Senate LD18

(Silver Spring, Wheaton, Kensington, Garrett Park, Chevy Chase)

I am Missy Carr - an entrepreneur with 25 years of small business ownership, a mom, a wife and a lifelong resident of Montgomery County. I am a proud GOP candidate for the Maryland State Senate in Legislative District 18. 

Montgomery County has not had a Republican representative in either the County Council or State Legislature in 20 years.

It's time to end one party rule!

The Progressive Democrats radical policies have resulted in higher taxes, declining schools (with and emphasis on destructive CRT & Gender/Sexuality curriculums), increased crime, fewer police, and the removal of SRO's from our schools. Montgomery County, known to be "not business friendly"  lags behind neighboring jurisdictions in attracting businesses to the County. This in turn puts the bulk of the tax burden on small businesses and residents. This is the result of policies not being challenged by commonsense. I believe I can bring that commonsense to legislating. 


Common Sense Voices

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.

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!


Open next Saturday

Spotlight on Dan Cuda

Expanding our Party - It’s Our Time

By Dan Cuda

Nobody is happy where Montgomery County is headed.  Even the down county politicians around Takoma Park recognize we’ve stagnated over the last twenty years.  Even if they’ve run the county for fifty years, they take no responsibility,  and offer no accountability for flat economic growth, declining schools and rising crime.

When did these politicians believe they could demoralize our police and not pay a price?  When did Montgomery County schools start believing they could raise children better than their parents.  Why did Amazon not even give Montgomery County a second look?   Why did Clark Construction move its headquarters to Virginia?  Why did Discovery Channel leave Silver Spring?  

For our flat economy,  the reason why is this - it costs too much money to bring and sustain jobs to Montgomery County.  Down-county politicians add to these costs with their special interest priorities and pay only lip service to economic growth. 

We all want a clean planet, but when their down-county priorities add costs to business that Virginia or the District don’t add, jobs go elsewhere.  It affects all of us.  That’s why I want to be a new voice on the County Council from District 2 – the up-county. 

I want to challenge the assumptions and priorities of the last twenty years.  I stand for the accountability and transparency of Montgomery County government and schools to parents and families for their curriculum and priorities.   I want to build an up-county voting coalition that can provide new leadership for our County.

My district is built around Clarksburg,  Germantown,  Poolesville and North Potomac.  If you are in Montgomery Council District 2,   I ask for your vote this Fall.
