On behalf of the Frederick County Democratic Central Committee, I am writing to say how happy we are to see the county trending ever more blue, and to see how many of the recent letters to the editor are following that trend. We invite those letter writers (and anyone else who agrees with them) to connect with us, your local Democratic Party.

Our office at 1080 West Patrick St. (Suite E) will be opening at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 11. The maximum capacity for now is 10 people, and masks are required. We’ll have signs and other campaign materials for you; and depending on when you arrive, you may be able to meet one or more of the Board of Education candidates.

If you don’t feel ready to go out in public, visit frederickdemocrats.org, where you can sign up for our newsletter and volunteer to write postcards or call voters. Be sure to check our calendar for upcoming club meetings, too — now via Zoom, of course. See you soon.

Any Dems here proud of their so-called blue cities and how they are being managed? Any of the Dems happy with the rising crime rates in those cities? [ninja]

Voting blue, remaining Independent for better days to come.

How are those Blue cities such as Seattle, Chicago, and NYC working out?

awteam2000

Seattle, Chicago, and NYC all have established community organizations to address police reform and all have eliminated the “choke hold” as a legal means of apprehension. Was that the answer you were looking for?

bosco

How are the crime rates doing? Any increase in shootings? It is after all, as one mayor described it, the Summer of Love.

I guess when the anarchists are all done spraying their hate graffiti everywhere, the mayors will just need a can or two of "Goof Off" and cleanup will be a breeze.

You left off some stuff, two grand... All three cities -- along with a host of other inveterate Dem cities -- are experiencing rapidly rising crime rates. Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc. are also hotbeds of homelessness accompanied by copious quantities of icky stuff on their streets and sidewalks. Outlawing choke holds is the right thing to do, but it's also an easy thing to do. Rising crime rates, homelessness and sidewalk icky stuff are bigger and harder challenges and thus far the entrenched Democratic mayors and city councils in these cities seem disinclined and/or unable to effectively address these festering urban ills.

Amen..they are the worst managed cities, all of them are bankrupt or on the verge and they provide justice and opportunity to no one but themselves and their buddies ...yet the inner city folks keep voting them in so who is to blame for that ??

bosco

The Democratic mayors of these major cities are not upholding their oath of office and have given up the rule of law in favor of the rule of mob. When will their constituents wake up and figure out that the inmates are running the asylum.

Small wonder people with the means are moving out as are corporations. Would you want to live in anarchy?

Really, would you?

Why is Ms. Carter politicizing the BoE race?

awteam2000

Gabe, good point. The BoE race should be a bipartisan race, like wearing a mask. Unfortunately it’s not.

public-redux

Technically, it should be non-partisan rather than bipartisan.

As soon as y’all stop fawning over David Trone I’ll be right over
