Dear Fellow Republicans,
Maryland has been weakened. You know it, and I know it. What we’ve seen from O’Malley and the Democrats in the last eight years has put Maryland in a dangerous position:
It is clear the Democrat tax and spend agenda isn’t working:
Since 2007 Maryland has lost more than 40,000 jobs, and more than 6,500 small businesses have left the state to move to more tax-friendly states.
The O’Malley/Brown administration and the Democrat General Assembly in Annapolis have passed 40+ taxes over the past four years.
Anthony Brown wasted 250 million dollars on a failed healthcare website.
Now Comptroller Peter Franchot has announced “I’m estimating that we will have to raise the state property tax by 67% to pay for the debt we owe over the next five years. The bill has to be paid.”(http://hogn.co/cn)
Frederick County is 1 of 10 counties faced with the rain tax, another Democrat tax from Annapolis. Should the new County Executive support this unfair piece of legislation? Once fully implemented, the Rain Tax would cost you another two hundred to five hundred dollars added to your property tax bill.
48% of the Frederick County budget goes to Education. We must stop Common Core, retain local control, and support our teachers and students by electing fiscally responsible candidates.
The residents of Maryland and Frederick County can’t afford the Democrats or O’Malley’s handpicked successors’ tax and spend agenda any longer.
I believe we can turn things around, but only if we elect more conservatives. That’s why I’m personally asking that you join me in supporting our Republican Slate in any way you can. With only 28 days until the election, your contribution will be used immediately to bolster the ground game. Or, you might volunteer to help us knock on doors, make phone calls, or join us at our headquarters to help with mailings.
