Debate Watch Party with the Baltimore City GOP
Wednesday September 27, 2023
Ropewalk Tavern in Federal Hill1209 S Charles St.
Please Join the Baltimore City Republican Central Committee as we meet in Ronald Reagan's favorite Baltimore taproom (The ROPEWALK TAVERN) to watch Republican presidential contenders in a vigorous debate to become the 2024 nominee.
Debate begins at 9 p.m. Come early (8 pm) and enjoy the Ropewalk's fine selection of beers and pub food!
August Central Committee Meeting Recap
The central committee met on Aug 17. We received a delegation from the Baltimore City Board of Elections who asked for help in two ways. First, to encourage Baltimoreans to register to vote. Second, a number of paid Election Judge positions must be filled each election, and we were asked to encourage our members and friends to consider this important role.
It takes many hands to run a political party, and even more when we're trying to undo the damage from decades of Democratic control. This month's newsletter features several ways you can help, plus a fun social event in a few days on 9-27.
If none of these fit your schedule, consider other ways to get involved -- attend City Council or School Board meetings, help organize and staff voter registration drives, write letters to the editor, help with social media, help organize a calendar of city government meetings, attend your neighborhood association meetings, etc., etc.
Meet us at the Debate Watch Party, our monthly meeting on the 3rd Thursday, or write to [email protected] with your ideas and we'll put you in touch with the appropriate central committee member.
Got a few free hours on the weekend? Curious about who Maryland Republicans are? Want to learn how to persuade a moderate to consider our side? Want to learn Republican talking points?
WE HAVE THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU....Come work our booth with us at the Pigtown Festival or the Fells Point Fun Fest. A Republican Party booth at festivals draws all kinds of people, both to work the booth and to visit the booth with comments or questions. Some of our people have been arguing with liberals for decades; others prefer to say "God Bless" and end the discussion. The more people we have under our banner, the more credibility for Republicanism and conservatism.
~ Pigtown Festival 2023: Saturday, September 30, noon-7pm, on Washington Blvd
~ Fells Point Fun Fest 2023: Saturday, October 7 11am-7pm and Sunday, October 8,11am-6pm

Tax Dollars Used to Spread Wokeness Beyond Baltimore
Not content with advancing a left-wing agenda within Baltimore City, the people who control our local government and institutions are fighting to spread their values to the rest of the state and beyond.
Parents in Carroll County asked that their schools not stock sexually explicit books. Hearing their constituents, Carroll County Schools announced plans to review how they make explicit books available in school libraries. In response, Enoc Pratt Library took out ads in the local news attacking the local schools and undermining parents' role in monitoring their children.
Legal abortion is under no threat in Maryland; it was explicitly guaranteed by referendum in 1992. But how can radicals show their commitment to abortion when it's not under threat? When you control other peoples' money, you can find a way. Mayor Scott in July announced grant funding for an "Abortion Protection Fund" to spend our tax dollars with grants from $8000 to $50,000 to support out-of-state travel to Baltimore to seek abortion.
What is "JICE"?
Jobs - Infrastructure - Crime - Education
This is the core of what we're about, and it'll be core of our messaging going into the 2024 election season.

Do you have ideas on how to solve the City's problems? Maybe you don't know what to do with those ideas? Maybe those ideas fall on deaf ears when you tell your councilmember? Here's a thought that might not have occurred to you: WHY DON'T YOU RUN FOR OFFICE YOURSELF? We can train you on how to do that: raise money, speak in public, understand public policy, account for campaign monies, etc. Have we piqued your interest?
