When I was asked to run for County Commissioner, I thought it would be a great way to serve the community and also, personally, a new learning experience. It has certainly been that and more. What I’ve learned is that there are critical issues facing Calvert County and decisions that will be made that will affect citizens and their families for decades. I want to be part of that process because I want YOU to be part of that process. I want to connect and engage with the people that will be most affected and be your voice. But I need your help. I’ve learned what most people learn when they go through a campaign like this. It takes money and it takes people willing to participate and help. If you trust and believe in my message, please consider contributing to my campaign. You can help by selecting one (or more) of the options on my website.
1. Make a monetary donation. All of the materials and the TV spot you can now view on the website costs money. To get our message out to a wide audience is expensive.
2. Place a sign in your yard or on your property. I will personally bring it by. I really need places on major roads for the 4 X 8 signs as well as yard signs in communities everywhere. This is really important.
3. I have magnetized signs for vehicles if you’d be willing to drive around with my name and face on your car.
4. I also have bumper stickers, buttons, and pamphlets I will be happy to bring by to help advertise the campaign and my areas of focus.
5. I need volunteers to canvass and to man polling places. June 26th will be a very labor intensive day and if you could spare a couple of hours to be at a polling place it would be very helpful.
If you are interested in any of these ways to help, please CLICK HERE.
Anything you could do to help us across the finish line on June 26th would be greatly appreciated.
I would really like the opportunity to run against the District 1 incumbent in November.
Thank you very much!!
This weekend, I will be appearing at two events on Solomons Island.
Many of our citizens feel disconnected from those who make the very decisions that affect their lives every day. I want to change that. I want to engage all Calvert County citizens in finding that voice and being more directly involved in the political process, in influencing those who have a direct impact on the quality of their lives.
I am here to LISTEN!I said in an earlier post that I’ve been spending time talking and listening to several people with much more experience in local government affairs than I possess at this moment. Some of the best advice I have received was this; “Start with what you know.” Certainly, in my case, that would be education and, more specifically, educational leadership. I spent thirty of my forty-five years in the field as an administrator and the last ten teaching educational leadership in the graduate school of education for Towson University. As I mentioned in my bio, good leaders are good learners, and that has been my primary mission early in my campaign for commissioner.
In Africa, there is no more fabled and fearsome tribe than the mighty Masai warriors. One might be surprised to learn that their traditional greeting when meeting others in the tribe is translated into, “And how are the children?” The response, even if one had no children of their own was, “All the children are well.” This clearly depicts a society that values its children; that if the children were well, peace and safety prevailed.
I have written and spoken frequently about school safety and “logical and rational” responses to the critical issues we face in ensuring the safety of our children, especially in our schools. For whatever reason, our schools have become targets for shootings over the past 20 years. Even though the statistics still identify these incidents as extremely rare, if you are a parent one in a million does not provide sufficient comfort that this will not occur in your own school. For that reason I do support the placement of trained law enforcement officers in every school.
