Leave those kids alone

On Saturday, 1/14/23, several Baltimore City Republican Party central committee members turned out to protest a drag show with children as spectators sponsored by an Enoch Pratt branch library. It was described as Drag Queen Story Hour.


Storytime, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Kids, whole family, Ages 3-5, Ages 5-7, Ages 7-9, Ages 9-12


Republicans support personal privacy. What happens in the privacy of a person's house between consenting adults is the business of those adults. 

But who thinks it is appropriate to drag children into this?  Who thinks it is appropriate to expose children to overtly sexual content

Our members did not and spoke out against it.

E Coli Press Release

The Baltimore City Government has been host to many dirty scandals this year. We have our dirty States Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who is being indicted for financial fraud. There is our dirty City Council President Nick Mosby, also still under investigation in connection to his financial dealings. There is our dirty Public Schools CEO Sonja Santelises who is being sued for allowing the BCPS to become a hotbed of corruption that fails our students. And now, we have dirty water contaminated by E.Coli virus in the West Baltimore neighborhood of Harlem Park. The area affected (as far as we know) is .31 Square miles but includes hundreds of homes and families who are suffering because of the incompetence and mismanagement out of City Hall.

Historically, this area of Baltimore has been ignored or exploited by city Democrats. Less than a mile southeast, residents of the West Baltimore neighborhood of Poppleton have been fighting an eminent domain declaration from City Hall in a bid to hand over the land to developers. And the infamous “highway to nowhere” which creates a huge divide between the north and south segments of West Baltimore is a result of Democrats like Barbra Mikulski stopping a huge interstate development project in time to leave their upscale neighborhood of Fells Point intact while leaving the West Baltimore Neighborhoods of Harlem Park and Franklin Square divided and robbed of economic opportunity. And of course, there are many more exploitations both major and minor. But allowing the drinking water of these neighborhoods to become infected with a potentially deadly virus like E.Coli is more than just an indignity, it is an outright crime.

While we encourage the residents of this neighborhood to demand answers and express their outrage to their elected officials (their names and contact info are listed on the second page of this press release), we also encourage residents in the affected neighborhood and surrounding areas to stay safe and take precautions to ensure your health and safety:


  1. Boil water before consumption. Bring the water to a rolling boil for 1 minute before you drink it or use it to make food. This includes water used for drinking, brushing teeth, washing produce, preparing food and formula, making ice, feeding pets, washing dishes, ect.
  2. Discard all ice, stored water, or drinks (kool-aid, tea, other drinks made from powders or mixes) that have been made recently.
  3. Wash your hands with water boiled on the stove. Boil the water separately using the same method described above, cool it down, then wash your hands as normal with soap and the now clean water.
  4. Try to purchase bottled water if possible for cooking and drinking.


If you or a family member are experiencing the symptoms of E.Coli (Diarrhea, Stomach Cramps, Nausea, or Vomiting), please immediately contact a doctor at a nearby urgent care. You can also take the following steps (found on the Mayo Clinics website) to speed up recovery and prevent complications:


  • Drink Clear Liquids including bottled water, clear sodas and seltzers, broths, gelatins, and juices except for apple and pear juice. Avoid Caffeinated and Alcoholic beverages
  • Avoid Dairy Products, High Fibre Foods, Fatty Foods, or highly seasoned foods that will worsen symptoms
  • Avoid Anti-Diarrheal Medicines and Anti-Biotics till you see your doctor. Anti-Diarreals prevent your body from getting rid of toxins while unprescribed antibiotics can increase the risk of serious complications (its easier of course to remember you should never start or stop taking any medication without consulting a doctor.)


This incident is another example of the unacceptable conditions created by one party rule. E.Coli in the water supply is an issue we expect to see in 3rd world countries, not in a major metropolitan city like Baltimore. As a city, we can do better and we deserve better. We want the Residents of Harlem Park to know we share your outrage and stand beside you in asking for accountability from our elected officials. And we will continue to fight for a city government that works for and is accountable to the people of Baltimore.


Please check the Mayo Clinic for more tips on handling E.Coli: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/e-coli/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20372064

Mar a Lago Raid Condemnation

Written by Amal Torres; edited by Tom Kennedy
Baltimore City Republican Central Committee Condemns Mar A Lago Raid
We join the 70% of the American electorate who are shocked and dismayed by the unlawful raid of President Donald Trump’s home on August 8th in Palm Beach, Florida. 
The raid -- authorized by an Obama-appointed Federal magistrate who once represented former employees of the deceased sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein -- purportedly intended to secure classified documents believed to be in the former president’s home.  
American justice once required that a crime be investigated for as long as it took until the responsible person is found.  These days, people are investigated as long as it takes until an appropriate crime is found.  The Biden Administration and the Radical Left, though we repeat ourselves, are weaponizing Federal agencies that once enjoyed the enthusiastic trust of the American people.  But with yet another hunting expedition in search of evidence against a political enemy (does the 30-month, $32,000,000 Mueller Investigation ring a bell?), Biden’s “Justice” Department is bastardizing the spirit of the Constitution’s 4th Amendment search and seizure protections.  
Much like their ideological forebears, Leftists show no compunction about intimidating or silencing people who openly oppose them.  Their actions are clearly reminiscent of the most dangerous authoritarian regimes of the 20th Century. 
As Americans who are proud to be American, we condemn the absurd notion the FBI needed 30 agents to raid a home to recover documents.  We reiterate our allegiance to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the constitutional protections we have enjoyed for two and a half centuries.   And we recommit ourselves to resisting authoritarians who arrogantly stand in the way of, or actively oppose, our freedoms.

Baltimore City Election Board Failure....Again

Once again, the Baltimore City Board of Elections under the leadership of Armstead Jones missed an opportunity to get it right.  Despite record low voter turnout, the ability to keep track of our votes seems to have eluded Mr. Jones and his team.  Until early evening a day after the 2022 Primary Election, thumb drives containing voting information from 12 voter precincts remained missing and unaccounted for.  While we rejoice the recovery of these thumb drives, we can only hope the numbers of votes reported from those drives are identical to the numbers they contained when they went missing a day earlier.
The lapse in procedure that led to the lost data might be overlooked if this had been a unique, one-of-a-kind occurrence.  However, in 2020, more votes were cast in some precincts than the number of registered voters.  Be suspicious anytime you hear "102% voter turnout."  And in 2016, after a lengthy delay in certifying the vote, the entire ballot was decertified, nearly causing Maryland Democrats and Republicans to forfeit the seating of their delegations at their respective national conventions. 
Three significant blunders in six years.  We demand that voting machine data be timely retrieved, that every legitimately cast vote be timely counted, and that no race be called until all lawfully cast votes are tabulated. To do anything less de-values and disenfranchises tens of thousands of city voters in our city. 


Three questions for the reader:

1) Are you satisfied with the property tax rate in Baltimore City (it is twice as high as other counties - 2.24% in the city vs 1.2% in other counties). Whether you own or rent, personal or business, you pay this tax in some form or another.

2) Are you satisfied with the services being provided by the city (public safety, public education, infrastructure, overall quality of life)

3) Do you want to pay less and get better services?

RenewBaltimore.org is a group of city leaders working now to get 10,000 signatures on 2 petitions. If they succeed, two measures will be placed on the general election ballot that we will be able to vote on.

The first lowers the property tax rate from 2.24% to 1.25% over a 6 year period.

The second strikes language from the city charter that stops this type of referendum.


Our own Jovani Patterson describes what Renew Baltimore is all about.


Please go to renewBaltimore.org for more details. You can also read the paper describing how this worked in San Francisco here.


We have about 2 weeks left to get 6,000 signatures. Let’s do it! Email Scott Graham at [email protected] or text me at 443 672 8194 if I can help.


Thank you!
