Why should voters elect you?

"Chris Driscoll will fight to clean up the terrible monopoly corruption eating away at our state government and economy. Send a watchdog to Annapolis."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Big business monopolies have corrupted Maryland's political system and distorted our free enterprise economy. These monopolies buy politicians with campaign contributions, and in return, they receive huge tax cuts, subsidies and preferential legislation harming all other business and all working families. This state-sponsored monopoly enterprise system is pushing working families to the brink. We need to cut taxes on the working and middle classes and restore workers' paychecks, our democracy and a level playing field for businesses. Every other problem we have is solvable once we remove the harmful influence of monopolies from our government and legislature."
