Campaign Update | October 5, 2021

October 4, 2021

As we roll in to fall, I want to take a moment to share what I have been up to on my campaign. This September, I continued to travel the state, meeting with Marylanders to discuss how I will continue to move our state in the right direction. The momentum continues to grow, and I am humbled by the outpouring of support.

I’ve traveled from Garrett County to the Eastern Shore to share my vision for our future: expanding opportunities for all Marylanders to find success for themselves and provide for their families.    Marylanders want good-paying jobs. We want to live in a state where it’s affordable to raise a family or build a business. And we need tax relief so our friends and neighbors can stay in the state they love.

We want to feel safe in our communities. Maryland needs a governor who fully supports and funds our police officers and is tough on violent crime. We must get violent repeat offenders off the streets and out of our communities.   

And we want our children to receive a world-class education. Teachers and parents agree we need to hold school systems accountable and make sure all available resources go directly to the classroom – and that our children are there too.

September was an exciting month, and I want to fill you in on some of the highlights.

I started the month with a visit to Calvert County to speak with the Calvert County Republican Central Committee. I also had a great visit with the Log Cabin Republicans in my hometown of Frederick. 

I was honored to speak at the Garrett County Lincoln Day Dinner, where we discussed the importance of the upcoming election, and how we must continue to move Maryland in the right direction.   

I was honored to join Pat Vincenti for a packed house in Harford County. We need strong leaders in all positions to have a positive impact on Maryland!

I had the time of my life at the Great Frederick Fair where I met with voters to discuss the concerns they’re facing. I even got to hold baby lambs! I followed up with a visit to the 29th Annual Poolesville Day Festival to see our Montgomery Republicans and made sure to stop by the American Legion tent. 

I spent more time on the Shore where I got to check out some beautiful cars when I attended the 10th Annual Ridgley Car and Motorcycle Show. Afterward, I headed to Easton for the Talbot County Skeet Shoot to discuss important topics I will address as governor.

I spoke to residents at Leisure World about the outrageously high retirement taxes that they and so many other Marylanders face, and I assured them I will fight for lower taxes every single year I’m in office, so they can state in the state they love.    In the last days of September, I attended the Middletown Heritage Festival and stopped by a growing local business, Fordham Lee. I can’t wait to be back! And I had a great time being joined by supporters at the Cavey Compound for a Fall Fest in Hampstead.

Our team of leaders with the shared commitment to keep moving Maryland in the right direction continues to grow. I am proud to call them friends and colleagues and am honored to have the endorsements of Delegate Wayne Hartman, Delegate Mike McKay, Delegate Wendell Beitzel, Delegate April Rose, Senator George Edwards, Commissioner Ed Rothstein, Senator Jack Bailey, Delegate Chris Adams, Delegate Kevin Hornberger, Senator Paul Corderman, Senator Justin Ready, Senator Ed Reilly, Delegate Susan Krebs, Senator Addie Eckardt, Delegate Brenda Thiam, Senator Mary Beth Carozza, Delegate Mike Griffith, and Delegate Kathy Szeliga.

Maryland is at a crossroads. We can either continue to move forward or we can go backward to the days of one-party rule. We cannot afford higher taxes, defunded police, and unions running our education systems. I am committed to standing with you to fight for Maryland’s future and hope you will join me today.

We are just getting started, and I look forward to working nonstop to earn the vote of each and every Marylander.

Thank you so much for your support.
