Frederick County Republicans,
The primary election is over and the good news is we have a reprieve from receiving mailers, so many we could wall paper a room. Once again answer the phone, and most of the signs that cluttered our lawns and streets will come down for the summer.
The bad news is voter turnout for the primary was very disappointing. With a week of early voting and three locations in Frederick County this year, of the 149,393 registered voters, 36,041 cast ballots June 24, yielding a 24.12 percent turnout overall. This means that one out of four voters are making decisions for all of us.
New legislative districts? Confusion with the new charter government (county council) districts? 83 candidates running for office in our county, each of them competing for your vote. How does one wade through so much literature and evaluate each candidate? Weren't all those candidates overwhelming?
The winners of the primary have been decided. Now the party must unite and elect strong conservative Republicans to end Maryland’s one party rule, repeal bad legislation, and lower the extreme tax burden causing Maryland residents and businesses to flee our great state.
We face an entrenched foe who will continuously move our county, state, and country further to the left. The GOP needs your help. Please volunteer to make calls, door knock with a buddy, stuff envelopes, join a campaign, or make a donation, but most important VOTE on November 4th.
Early voting begins Thursday, October 23rd through Thursday, October 30th, 10 am until 8 pm.
Please remember if you do not vote Republican, you are effectively voting for the Democrat candidate.
