You Aren't Paying Enough Of Your Fair Share
Hayden Duke

I was very disappointed when I read recently that Councilmember Michael Blue is going to co-sponsor an increase of $1 in Recordation Fees. You might think I’m being stingy, and rightly so. Right now our Recordation Fee is $6.00 per $500, if passed the $1 increase would take it to $7.00 per $500.

The Republican Women Of Frederick County Salutes: Hiram Rhodes Revels, America's First African American United States Senator
Guest Columnist

Angela McIntosh

It is likely that many, if not most Americans, assume no African American ever held high public office until Barbara Jordan was elected to Congress in 1972. It is also likely that most Americans assume Jordan to be the first African American from the South elected to hold high office in the Federal government. Both of these assumptions are incorrect.

The Republican Women Of Frederick County Salute Ida B. Wells
Guest Columnist


Angela McIntosh

When you hear the name Ida B. Wells, what words come to mind? Journalist? Civil rights activist? Suffragette? Abolitionist? Indeed, all these words accurately describe Ida B. Wells, but there is another word that describes her just as accurately as all the others, and probably, it is one that will surprise you. That word is Republican.

Partisanship And Voting Trends In State And Local Elections
Guest Columnist

Jerry Donald

In his 2018 book “The Increasingly United States,” Daniel J. Hopkins summarizes the circumstances surrounding state and local politics. In it, he looks at the factors that have made national politics the dominant focus for American citizens. The gist of his book is that Americans’ interest in politics at the national level has remained steady over the years, while interest in state and local politics has declined considerably.
