"A pro-Bush, lifelong county resident, I'm the only Republican candidate who's ever voted in a Montgomery County Republican primary or been elected to public office."
"Making government efficient. My certified November property tax ballot question compels local Democrats to enforce their own property tax limit. We've had large unnecessary Montgomery County income, energy, telephone and property tax increases. Van Hollen's call to reverse middle-income tax cuts will increase income, marriage, death and small-business taxes. I'd increase taxes as a last resort. I'd support U.S. troops in harm's way. Van Hollen voted to send soldiers to Iraq, then to eliminate their funding. End gridlock by building light rail between Bethesda and Silver Spring and to Germantown. Construct environmentally sensitive intercounty connector and new Potomac bridge."
