Campaign Update | December 8, 2021

December 8, 2021

With the leaves changing colors, the temperature beginning to drop, and Thanksgiving officially behind us, we’re heading into winter and our campaign for governor continues to heat up!

This past month on the campaign trail was wonderful! I enjoyed traveling the state and seeing many old friends while making new ones, as I shared my positive vision for the future with Marylanders from all walks of life.

What I can tell you, is that our message is certainly resonating – the momentum behind our campaign is building and I’m humbled by the support we are receiving.

Whether I am talking with a small business owner in Easton or a working mom in Montgomery County, Marylanders are hopeful and optimistic about the future of this state. They want to build upon the successes that we’ve had over the last seven years, and that’s exactly what I will do as your governor.

Our campaign is focused on ensuring that all Marylanders are afforded every possibility to succeed and pursue their own dreams. The issues that we’re talking about; growing the economy, making sure our children receive an excellent education and keeping our communities safe, are the issues that most Marylanders I speak with are passionate about.

Like you, I love this state and when I’m your governor, I’ll fight every day to continue to make Maryland more affordable and a better state for individuals to raise a family, start a business and retire.

I wanted to take a moment to fill you in on some exciting highlights from November. It was certainly a busy month on the trail, but I really enjoyed spending time out and about in our beautiful state.

We kicked off the month with a visit to Baltimore to speak at the Baltimore City GOP’s inaugural Lincoln-Reagan-Douglass-Dinner. There was a great turnout at this event, and it was exciting to see so many people engaged, I wish the club much-continued success.

We had a great time honoring the brave men and women who have served our country by partaking in the Brunswick Veterans Day parade, which is one of the oldest of its kind in America.

I was also honored to speak at the Maryland Federation of Republican Women’s Fall Meeting, this is an organization that means so much to me, and really fueled a passion for public service within me. It’s great to see that the MFRW continues to inspire women to partake in the political process. 

It’s always great to be able to spend some time on the Eastern Shore. And last month we attended the Talbot County Lincoln-Reagan Dinner and the iconic Waterfowl Festival.

The festival is a great way to celebrate our state’s natural beauty and wildlife, and I enjoyed meeting so many Marylanders, visiting with local businesses, and exploring some really interesting exhibits. 

I was thrilled to be in Howard County to join my friend, Alan Kittleman as he begins his campaign for county executive, I wish him the best of luck.

I love being surrounded by my family during this time of year and I really enjoyed spending time with my grandson, for his first Thanksgiving! After a busy and challenging year for all of us, I am humbled and thankful for so much.

The holiday season has truly made its way to Maryland. I had the opportunity to join friends in Owings Mills and Baltimore City to celebrate Hanukkah and participate in a menorah lighting ceremony. It truly is the most festive time of the year, and I’m looking forward to continuing to celebrate the season and attending Christmas parties across the state. 

I really appreciate that you took the time out to read our campaign update, we had a great month! In December we’ll continue to crisscross the state and work hard to earn the support of every Marylander – I hope to see you out on the campaign trail.

Thank you for your continued support, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
