County Executive Elrich's Political Stunt Makes 
Montgomery County Less Safe

Rockville, MD

The Montgomery County Republican Party believes County Executive Elrich has just made the County less safe by issuing an executive order yesterday preventing county agencies from cooperating with ICE. 

County Party Chairman, Alexander Bush, said, "If you take politics out of the decision, it quickly becomes apparent that one government agency refusing to share relevant information about law enforcement activities with another government agency makes no sense." ICE has made clear that their enforcement operations are prioritized to focus on criminals, not peaceful undocumented individuals.

So long as enforcement does not include targeted courthouse arrests of crime victims, a policy of cooperation will only make Montgomery County safer.  In fact, President Obama stated in a 2014 address on immigration that he had increased the deportation of criminal immigrants by 80%.  Viewed in this light, Chairman Bush noted, "Elrich’s political stunt is all about opposing a President he hates, even at the risk of the safety of Montgomery County residents."

Montgomery County Council selects Kathy Gugulis and Christopher Danley to serve on the County Charter Review Commission for 2020

Rockville, MD 

Every two years, the County Charter Review Commission (CRC) completes a review and report suggesting potential Charter amendments.  This is critically important for upkeep and management of the Montgomery County Charter, created in 1968.  It also determines much of how local politics is governed.  The members of the Charter Review Commission are appointed to four year terms, by the County Council, and it is split between Republican and Democratic appointments, and a limit of 6 appointments may be made from the same political party.  The County Council made two new Republican appointments this season, Katherine Gugulis and Christopher Danley.
