Reopen Maryland – Call To Action!

Reopen Maryland, a grassroots group that held a successful rally opposing Governor Hogan’s continuation of shutting down Maryland, is calling for further action; but it’s not what you are thinking.

Len Foxwell, Comptroller Peter Franchot’s chief of staff, made a concerning and incendiary comment about their April 18 rally days before it was to take place.  We’ll let his Facebook post speak for itself.

Regardless of what political party you affiliate with, I think reasonable people will agree this kind public discourse is not acceptable from elected officials nor their staff. 

Reopen Maryland is asking everyone interested in restoring civil discourse among people who disagree, to contact not only the Governor’s office and the Comptroller’s office regarding disciplinary action, but to contact the media as well.  Contact information is provided below. 

It’s time to restore citizen controlled governance.  Put people before parties and to treat those we disagree with, with the respect every human deserves. 

The points Reopen Maryland would like you to consider are:

  • He used his official position and lied to get into the Reopen Maryland group. Was he lying then or now?
  • He has wished ill and even worse, on people who simply disagree with him on policies.
  • His defense that it was satire (which no one can believe) has changed to he was talking about extremists. Would that also make him an extremist if accurate?
  • Lastly, his page is full of examples of his disdain for his constituents, the people who pay his salary.
  • Remind the Comptroller, who is running for Governor, we will remember how he handles this in 2022.

Be respectful or you will not be heard, and we all need to be heard.

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
