ANNAPOLIS- Maryland Young Republicans Chairman Brian Griffiths issued the following statement today on the upcoming Special Session of the Maryland General Assembly.
“When the Maryland General Assembly returns to Annapolis tomorrow, it will serve as a reminder of the Democrats failure to lead in this state.
“For far too long Democrats have been trying to avoid the consequences of their reckless spending. For too long they have ignored the warning signs that prove that their philosophy of governance is unsustainable, even more so in the current economic climate. And the inability of Maryland’s Democratic leaders to effectively govern our state came to a head with their inability to balance the state budget during our regular General Assembly Session.
“Martin O’Malley, Mike Miller, and Mike Busch are completely feckless. They have proven to be incapable of leading their party, and unwilling to lead Maryland in the direction it needs to be successful in the modern age. These feckless leaders are insistent on raising taxes on middle and working class Marylanders so that they can continue to grow the size of government and to provide handouts to their special interest supporters. Such irresponsible measures will continue to create a climate that makes it harder and harder for young professionals to live and work in Maryland.
“If the Governor and the General Assembly truly wish to improve the plight of Marylanders, particularly our young professionals, they will work to cut spending and lower our taxes in order to help jump start our job market and our economy. The Maryland Young Republicans are looking forward to working hard to send more common sense leaders to Annapolis in 2014.”
The Maryland Young Republicans are the leading organization of Republican youth in the Old Line State. We are Maryland’s officially chartered affiliate of the Young Republican National Federation. But we are so much more than that. Our clubs consist of active members of our communities. They are members of local central committees, active in community leadership, and running campaigns for office across Maryland. All young professionals who wish to help us in this cause are invited to join us at our 2012 Convention being held in Annapolis on June 2nd.
