Town Square: Annapolis political moves


Town Square is an opinion column to which readers can submit their views. As a true community newspaper, we’re always looking for ways to include local thought and pertinent viewpoints. This column is a way to share those thoughts. Civility and fair comment will always prevail.

Governor Larry Hogan last week announced the formation of a redistricting commission for the state’s congressional election districts. Of Maryland’s eight, seven are now represented by Democrats. BE FAIR: Well the best thing would be is if they could ignore politics and just simply concentrate on making a district of people, and let the chips fall where they may. Any other way is cheating.

FACE OFF: Time to confront our Democratic folks and either get their support or embarrass them.

Delegate Chris Adams (R-37B) was chosen last week to be the Republican Party’s House Minority Whip.

CONGRATULATIONS: I admire your tenacity and approach to resolving the most difficult conflicts. Best wishes in your future position, we need you in there.

LOOKING FORWARD: Hoping to see great things from you. Let’s get this redistricting done fairly.

ACROSS THE BAY: With all due respect, Republicans don’t have a chance in the state of Maryland. We are ruled by the western shore.
