Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot Visits Calvert County

On Tuesday April 23, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot paid a visit to the Calvert County Democratic Club meeting at Adam's Ribs in Prince Frederick. He spoke at length about his time serving the state of Maryland in various roles from the Maryland House of Delegates through his current position, including his strong support of union labor and protecting and supporting organized labor not just in Calvert County, but all of Maryland. He also explained a bit about how his office services Marylanders' tax questions and assists in getting our refunds back to us promptly.

He then took questions from those in attendance, and the group had a very informative and interesting discussion over a wide-ranging variety of issues. Calvert County Democrats thank Mr. Franchot for his visit and service to all Marylanders.

Dr. Maya Rockymoore Cummings Visits Calvert County

Prince Frederick, Maryland. February 26, 2019 - Dr. Maya Rockymoore Cummings Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party visited Calvert County to speak at the monthly meeting of the Calvert County Democratic Club. Dr. Cummings discussed her long-term plans for the upcoming 2020 elections and beyond.

 

At the meeting, held at Adam's Taphouse and Grille in Prince Frederick, Dr. Cummings shared the party’s vision for the future including a whole state strategy for Maryland Democrats to expand our base, advocate for Democratic policies, and achieve success across Maryland, including rural counties like Calvert. She gave assurances to Calvert Democrats that the state party will be working to include a diverse coalition of people and ideas to promote Democratic ideals and policy across the state of Maryland, without leaving anyone behind; as well as building a strong lineup of candidates to win seats across the state.

 

Dr. Cummings’ visit was met with optimism and and enthusiasm by the Calvert Democrats after a thoughtful question and answer session, where attendees brought ideas and concerns to the Chair on how Democrats can continue to expand their presence and influence in Calvert County.

 

Chair Cummings assured the attendees that this would not be her only visit to Calvert County, and that it would be part of a continual relationship between Maryland’s county parties and the state organization.

National Issues Discussion: Opioid Epidemic

CCDCC Opioid Epidemic

National Issues Forums (NIF) is a nonpartisan, nationwide network of locally sponsored public forums for the consideration of public policy issues. It is rooted in the simple notion that people need to come together to reason and talk to deliberate about common problems.

This National Issues Forum will present three options relating to the question: What Should We Do About the Opioid Epidemic? for deliberation. Each option is based on differing views about what we hold most valuable. Each represents a general direction and suggests a number of actions that can be carried out by different people or groups.

Check out a copy of the guidebook from the Library in advance, and come ready to discuss! Community Mediation Center of Calvert County will be facilitating the discussion. Calvert Library in partnership with Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse, Calvert County Behavioral Health Services, Andrew Rappaport Calvert County State's Attorney, and others.
This is a Choose Civility Southern Maryland event.

MD Dems Elect Maya Rockeymoore Cummings as Party Chair

by fseatonCCDCC Maya Rockeymoore Cummings

Annapolis, MD—Today, at a meeting of the Democratic State Central Committee of Maryland, Democratic central committee members elected Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings as Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party.  Rockeymoore Cummings issued the following statement thanking central committee members for electing her: 

“Our party is united, our party is strong, and we are going to hit the ground running. 

“This is a partnership. The central committees are filled with activists and organizers who believed in me, and I believe in them. In the years ahead, I will do everything I can to justify their trust, and continue to grow it.

“We are at our most effective when our elected officials and our party activists move in concert with one another, motivated by common ideals, and a shared belief in a Democratic Party that expands opportunity and lifts all communities. 

“Over the last couple of weeks, I promised Democrats across Maryland that I would listen to them, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. In the weeks ahead, I will continue reaching out to our committees, our elected officials, and our voters to develop my Go DEEP Plan, so that we enter the new year with a concrete plan of action, and begin making progress for Democratic victories across the state in 2020 and beyond!”

Matthews issued the following statement on thanking central committee members for two years of partnership:

“I ran for Democratic Party Chair 2 years ago after a divisive 2016 election because I was determined to serve, organize, unite our Maryland party, and win elections. After making gains up and down the ballot on Election Day 2018, Maryland Democrats have an opportunity to build on our progress to move Maryland forward.

“I stand ready to work with Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings to ensure that we double down on our progress to elect Democrats statewide and in every county in Maryland. I am also excited about the dozens of rising stars who have entered the race for party leadership. This is proof that the future of the Maryland Democratic Party has never been brighter.”

In addition to Rockeymoore Cummings, the party elected the following individuals to leadership roles in the party:

1st Vice-Chair
Senator-elect Cory McCray (Baltimore City)

2nd Vice-Chair
Allison Galbraith (Eastern Shore)

3rd Vice-Chair
Nicole Williams (Prince George’s County)

Secretary
Robbie Leonard (Baltimore County)

Deputy Secretary
Abena McAllister (Southern Maryland)

Treasurer 
Bob Kresslein (Western Maryland)

Deputy Treasurer
Jeffrey Slavin (Montgomery County)
