Why should voters elect you?
"Being the second-ranking Republican leader in the House, I am proud that Republicans led the successful fight for cutting income taxes. Republicans showed that a tax cut was responsible and would improve economic opportunities for all Marylanders. I am also proud of my principled opposition to the Democratic majority. For example, I was a leader in the fight against public funding for professional sports stadia, and successfully opposed Governor Glendening's budget proposal to pay for Medicaid abortions on demand. Finally, I worked to achieve bipartisan support for needed road and school construction and partnership with farmers to eliminate pfiesteria."

What do you want voters to know about you?
"I serve as legal counsel to Sauerbrey for Governor Campaign and won a crucial 1994 lawsuit for Sauerbrey concerning campaign funding."

Elected Offices and Civic Activities: Leadership in drives for charter government; elected school board and councilmanic districts.

Why should voters elect you?
"As minority leader, I have worked successfully to build our growing Republican membership into an effective caucus, which has raised pertinent issues and held the majority accountable. Republicans now hold just under one-third of the 141 seats in the House and are creating the structure and culture for the beginnings of a two-party system in Maryland. During the past four-year term, Republicans were responsible for pushing through critical legislation such as the personal income tax cut and ethics reform, and we have provided principled opposition to issues such as taxpayer funding stadia and the recent politicization of spending education dollars."

What do you want voters to know about you?
"I encourage our caucus to work with the majority whenever possible such as in welfare reform and in successfully building new roads and schools."

Web site: None.

Why should voters elect you?
"Maryland desperately needs new, innovative leadership in order to make Maryland 'America's Best' well into the 21st century. We don't need career politicians who work only for their own reelection. Instead, the people of District 14B and of Maryland deserve leaders who will: restore the public's trust in their elected leaders; keep the state's economy strong; make Maryland's educational system, K-12 and in higher education, world-class; pass legislation to make our communities safer; and protect and preserve our environment. If elected, I'll work to achieve those goals, and make Maryland a better place to live and work."
