Montgomery County Sentinel columnist Paul Schwartz’s opinions and perspectives regarding racism, misogyny and xenophobia are collated in his new book titled “A Citizen’s Perspective.”
The book is a compilation of his weekly opinion column "Paul's View" for the Montgomery County Sentinel.
“Although I include columns on a host of issues that directly impact society as a whole, because all of these issues were relevant to the rhetoric of the 2016 presidential campaign, the 2016 election is the primary focus of my columns. As such, my columns primarily deal with exposing the blatant hypocrisy that so characterized the 2016 presidential election,” Schwartz said.
Schwartz is the Maryland Federation of NARFE's State Legislative Committee chair. He was an official with the federal government for 37 years working for U.S. Customs at the World Trade Center in New York and, later, headquarters in Washington as the director of Trade Enforcement. He served in the Department of Homeland Security when that department was created in 2003 and completed his federal career at FEMA post-Katrina.
After his retirement from federal service, he became a member of a subcommittee for the National Commission on Children and Disasters lead by Mark Shriver, worked as an advocate for gun safety in the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy and the passage of Maryland's Firearms Safety Act of 2013, has worked in support of Congressman John Sarbanes' efforts to reform campaign financing, and is currently a member of Montgomery County's Committee on Public Election Funds.
“A Citizen’s Perspective,” published by Xlibris, is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
