Latest News:


The next meeting of the Washington County Republican Club will be on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 7 p.m. at the Funkstown American Legion (Ballroom entrance.) The Western MD Delegation will be our guests, informing the group on the latest legislative session. All are welcome, you do not need to be a member to attend. 




The  Washington County Board of Elections is looking to fill 12 positions  for Republican Election Judges in this year's election cycle. The  Washington County Republican Central Committee would like to see those  positions filled with conservative folks.

The  prospective judges will need reliable transportation, be able to stand  for long periods of time, and be willing to travel anywhere in the  county. The work day is about 16 hours, and election judges are not  permitted to leave the polling place except in case of emergency.

I  don’t say all that to scare anyone off, but it’s not for everybody. I  just want people to understand what they’re signing up for. Election  judges are paid $175 for election day, and $25 for training.

If  you would like to serve the citizens of Washington County, and make  sure that we have fair elections at our county polling locations, please  contact:

The 2018 legislative session ended on Monday.

Good news: Some good bills passed the Maryland General Assembly including a group of bills that targeted crime, calling for tougher penalties for repeat violent offenders. A bill to enhance school safety and Governor Hogan's bill to give tax relief to retired military and first responders also passed in the final days of session. 

Bad news: Democrats habits of abuse of power have continued. They overrode the Governor's veto on a bill that will hand over school funding to un-elected lobbyists. The bill was opposed by Governor Hogan, nearly every Republican in the Maryland General Assembly, and Democratic Comptroller Peter Franchot. Democrats in Annapolis also prevented further tax relief that was proposed by Republican legislators.

Beyond legislative session, Rushern Baker and Kevin Kamenetz continue to have problems with corruption in their school systems and Governor Hogan continues to have the 2nd highest approval rating of any Governor in the country. Governor Hogan's steady leadership will serve as a strong contrast to the ineptness of his opponent this November.

It will also be critical for all Republicans in Maryland to vote to elct more Republican Senators and Delegates to the General Assembly so they can sustain the Governor's vetoes on bad bills.

In the News...


We don't need Rushern Baker's version of leadership!

Despite mounting evidence against Prince George's County Schools CEO Kevin Maxwell, Gubernatorial candidate Rushern Baker continues to defend him.


For the fifth quarter in a row, America’s 10 most popular governors are all Republicans.

That’s according to the latest  edition of Morning Consult’s Governor Approval Rankings, compiled from  online surveys conducted with almost 275,000 registered voters from Jan.  1 through March 31. See our methodology here.

The top four in the rankings remain  unchanged from the fourth quarter of 2017, with Govs. Charlie Baker of  Massachusetts, Larry Hogan of Maryland, Kay Ivey of Alabama and Phil  Scott of Vermont enjoying support from at least 65 percent of their  constituents. New Hampshire’s Chris Sununu and North Dakota’s Doug  Burgum rejoin the top 10 in lieu of Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas and Greg  Abbott of Texas.

"Governor Larry Hogan will have an enormous financial advantage against whoever wins the Democratic nomination and the two parties could be at rough parity.

If Hogan wins, it’s reasonable to assume that the GOP will continue to raise as much or more in state-level money as the Democrats during his second term. That would be a nice boost for the next generation of Republicans looking to succeed him."


This is what happens when you replace a Republican Mayor with a Democrat 😡" target="_blank">https://mail.google.com/mail/e/1f621"/>

There's a reason he was nicknamed "Tax Man Gavin" during the campaign. This is the largest proposed tax increase in Annapolis in over 20 years and a broken campaign promise that he would not raise taxes. 


Governor Larry Hogan:

"During my campaign for governor I pledged to work hard to provide well-deserved tax relief for our state's retirees. I said that I wanted to eventually reach the point where we could do away with income taxes on all retirement income, just as many other states have done - that is still our goal. And I pledged to start heading toward that goal by repealing taxes on the pensions of our brave men and women who risked their lives for us."
