So that I don't "reinvent the wheel" too much, I'll refer you to what I already wrote on July 26th.
There are additional comments. I didn't elaborate enough on the Montgomery County Council in that previous post. All I said was that they needed to go. It turns out that two of the incumbents, Phil Andrews and Mike Knapp, aren't seeking reelection. Interestingly enough, they are the only two who did not vote for the pregnancy center strangulation legislation this past winter. Coincidence?
I went to a Candidates' Forum on August 25th, held at St Jane de Chantal. The candidates were all the "at-large" candidates for County Council. There were 14 candidates: 10 Democrats, 3 Republicans, 1 Green. No questions from the audience were accepted (can't have any input from those...those...tea partiers now, can we?). The predetermined questions focused on low-income housing and health care services. Of course topics along the lines of baby murder or gay lifestyle promotion were avoided like the plague. The Catholic "social justice" crowd didn't want to embarrass those who promote baby murder, I suppose. But I digress!
From other input that I've received, I feel comfortable recommending Robert Dyer. I don't know enough about the other Republicans to say anything, one way or the other.
I'll have more to say later, but I want to ask you all, particularly Marylanders, to review these links and above all, to get out the pro-life vote in Maryland.
