Be Informed and Connected
The Washington County Republican Club represents a large number of people who share your values for the common good. The Club stimulates discussion, creativity, leadership and activism on the social/political issues for which we are passionate. With policy briefings and updates by speakers and other leaders, every opinion is welcomed, debated, and in the end, better founded than before. You will not only be better informed about the issues, but also network with other involved, interesting people including elected officials, candidates and other community figures.
Be truly represented
In order for your values to be represented in public office, you vote for candidates who best represent your view. The Club works diligently to elect such candidates. Not only will you know more about officials, you will have opportunities to get to know them and learn who truly represents your view.
Maximize your voice
Joining with other Republicans to hold official’s feet to the fire, giving your input, and telling officials what you expect of them amplifies your voice. The WCRC promotes what matters. We speak respectfully, yet loudly, and we are heard.
Be part of the action between elections.
The real action happens in between elections. That’s when people need to be educated, supporting structures need to be built, and the candidates you helped to elect need your input and guidance. With a political arena looking increasingly like life down Alice’s rabbit hole, citizen participation is essential to ensure a rational path to the future. The Washington County Republican Club accepts the challenge.
No two Republican Clubs are alike and there are myriad ways to help in each community. Joining with like-minded, yet diverse friends brings out the best in one's interests and talents. There are lots of ways be involved. Did we say make a difference? Oh, yeah!
Assisted Suicide - The End-of-Life Option Act (Richard E. Israel and Roger "Pip" Moyer Act)
1:30 PM - Health and Gov't Operations Committee
The Oregon-based special interest group Compassion & Choices has once again introduced legislation (Senate Bill 311/House Bill 399) that would legalize physician-assisted suicide (PAS) here in Maryland. If you can go testify, great! You can also take action below.
This amendment would enshrine the "right" to kill your child at any time in pregnancy up until BIRTH. It would prevent enforcement of any laws protecting preborn people currently on the books and block any attempt to pass future legislation that would protect preborn children from being sliced and diced, etc. (For example, it would block legislation like the Pain Capable Bill or the Dismemberment Ban. )
There are two bills in the State Senate and two bills in the House of Delegates right now to make Maryland a sanctuary state.
SB 718 & HB 1165 would require that TAXPAYER FUNDED DOLLARS be spent covering some legal fees of people who are in our country illegally.
