The source of our problems in Maryland is obvious. Our legislators and governor have conspired to erode our liberties and infringe upon our constitutional protections. During Maryland General Assembly sessions, they legislate to plunder from the working class to enable wasteful government spending, they over-regulate businesses, and they do further damage to the rule of law and accountability in government. Like you, I have had enough. With more than 25 years of experience as an accomplished business leader and with a firm grasp of American history and an understanding of the original intent of our founders, I am confident that I can bring solutions to bear on solving Maryland’s challenges.
During recent legislative sessions, the citizens of Maryland, along with some very strong public representatives, came out in droves to stand against the numerous attacks on our rights and our wallets. Unfortunately, state conservatives lost. We lost, not because we did not work hard enough or because we did not have the weight of evidence on our side. We lost because we were outnumbered and failed to adequately address the declining culture in our state.
To win, we must take the fight to the strongholds of liberalism within our borders. We have some strong allies within these liberal strongholds, alongside conservative voices. We need to invest time with these people and exchange ideas that will bring forth positive results. Additionally, we need to bring conservative groups together to expand and develop a positive course of action while encouraging conservatives in those areas to run for office.
As your Senator, I plan to serve my state and my district by reducing the support for liberal ideology at its core and standing in defense of conservative ideals and actions. I will invest my time working for conservative causes across Maryland, expanding our voter base, and battling the cultural war where it will be most effective. I also intend to work during the off season to find ways to reduce the size and cost of government, to cut redundant and unnecessary agencies and departments, to improve our educational system, and to encourage alternative educational opportunities for our youth.
Since serving on the Cecil County Republican Central Committee several years ago, I have been burdened to run for public office again. Now that my children are grown, I am finally in a position to step away from my career and devote my time and energies to the cause at hand. I am committing myself to standing against everything that is harming my country and state. John Quincy Adams, speaking to his posterity said “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.” I am making a commitment to you to work tirelessly for all Maryland citizens and to make good on the sacrifices of our founding generation. I am an American Patriot and I will fight to restore our liberty. Will you join me?
