Frederick County Conservative Club Goes After Charter Government
An estimated gathering of 20-30 people packed a meeting room at Mexicali Cantina in downtown Frederick. They came to hear the Frederick County Conservative Club’s plans for 2020 as well as its position on Charter Government.
Board Member Fred Propheter spoke and explained the plans the club had and the crowd appeared enthusiastically behind what he was saying. Members of the crowd asked questions, while others simply voiced their approval of what they were hearing. Some guests spoke of other concerns they had within the county and said they were very happy to finally have a club that was “actually doing something”.
Many prominent members of the Frederick community in attendance said they were behind the club 100%. Many there had never attended a meeting before, and were very impressed, some even decided to officially become members.
The club is made up of Frederick County residents that want to insure the county is doing the best it can for all of its residents. The Frederick County Conservative Club is a non-partisan club with a mission of holding both parties accountable. It’s just what this county needs.
People are free to exchange ideas or even disagree over issues, and at the end of the day everyone agrees this club is in the best position to affect some really positive and much needed changes.
Mr. Propheter was asked what he thought about the meeting and he responded: “The fact that we have a packed house and the buzz/electricity in the room, I feel is a major indicator of the mood and attitude of the people of Frederick.”
He went on to say: “This is not a Republican or Democrat movement. It is a move by the electorate to return to the more citizen centered form of government rather than having to sift through layers of bureaucracy and red tape to accomplish anything. The opposition may offer the straw argument that the former BOCC pushed the Charter initially but, in its final draft, the Charter passed with a split decision due to the sloppy way it was constructed.”
All in all the meeting was a huge success and the club is extremely honored by the support it’s getting from the community.
