CORN POP WAS A BAD DUDE

BUT AT LEAST HE DIDN'T EAT MY UNCLE!


REPUBLICAN HELP WANTED

When you walk down the sidewalk in Montgomery County every sixth person you pass is a Republican. Now imagine, with the elections forthcoming we have hundreds of polling places, days and days of early voting, and big rooms filled for weeks with dedicated citizens counting, sorting and even copying mail in ballots. In every case the Board of Elections tries to pair a Republican with a Democrat. If we don't step up and volunteer they will team up a Democrat with an Unaffiliated voter. 

To make sure EVERYONE feels the process is fair, valid and legal we need folks from ALL parties to step up to the plate.

If you're a registered Republican who can serve - even half a day - please send an email to our Party Secretary, Lori Jaffe at [email protected] with your contact information.

We'll pass it on to the Board of Elections with the thanks of a grateful Party and community.


LET'S RIGHT THIS SHIP

There wasn’t a dry eye in the room last Saturday. Tom Homan, former ICE Director was telling of his experiences at the southern border.

  • kids sold into the sex trade
  • kids who had died in trailers abandoned in the sun by smugglers
  • women and girls who had been sexually abused again and again

I looked around the table, around the room and folks could not believe the stories, that we were encouraging people to go though this at the southern border – the death and the suffering is inexcusable. Yet it goes on.

Director Homan was giving a report on his term as the Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and his relationship with former President Trump. He wanted us to know how important it is to return to the policies of welcoming immigrants through proper channels, and not through the arms of the criminal cartels.

It is important to return to apprehending and deporting criminal illegal aliens - instead of allowing "sanctuary counties" like Montgomery to not cooperate until other horrendous crimes have been committed by those we should have been deported many times.

This election is important. Illegal immigration is only one of the important issues. There is so much more we have to do to return to normalcy.

Primary voting has already started, they’re actually canvasing Primary ballots today in Germantown. Please take your vote seriously and once you’ve decided, cast your ballot. We encourage you to vote by mail. If not, early vote. If not, then make sure you vote by election day. Most votes are cast before then.

We need to right this ship. I know that by working together we will.

God Bless America

HONORING OUR POLICE - BACK THE BLUE

NEXT EVENT IS APRIL 30 IN GERMANTOWN

by Susan Baker

The first Back the Blue (BTB) event of 2024 was held on Tuesday, April 16, 2024. Being my first one, I learned that all the Republican Women’s Clubs (Chevy Chase, Potomac, Rural, and Upper County) and the MCGOP Republican Central Committee have actually been involved in this effort supporting our police for the past five years. I arrived at Police District 4 with several others and helped them set up, bringing food, drinks, snacks and signs of support for the police.  

Officers and staff came and went. Some stayed a bit, and we mingled and talked with them with happy spirits all around. I had an especially good conversation with three officers with whom I shared my experiences taking the MC Police Citizens’ Academy. They all said how pleased they were that I had attended, enjoyed, and learned so much about the work they do, and that I am an alumna of the Academy (I had my badge on). I shared an exciting conversation with one of the officers about community household security, the available systems, and the physical aspects. I learned a lot. I goofed and ate a cookie, and the Officer I was talking with said that it was OK that I had eaten their cookie… "It is a good thing" … as he patted his belly. 


MCGOP PROCLAMATION OF ELLA ENNIS DAY

The Montgomery County Federation of Republican Women held a Champagne Brunch to honor Ella Ennis for her leadership, vast knowledge of the legislative process and her achievements over many decades. Both the MCFRW and the MCGOP proclaimed April 18, 2024, as Ella Ennis Day. MCGOP Organization Chair Ann Hingston presented the MCGOP Proclamation and MCFRW President Anne Koutsoutis presented the MCFRW Proclamation.
