SCHWARTZAs we approach Election Day 2018 next November as well as the primary in June it is important to understand all that is at stake in that more than likely transitional game-changing election. Certainly the Congressional elections across the country will be critical if there is any hope of undoing the damage to this country resulting from the Trump presidency.
Also critical to Maryland is who we place in the Governor's office to lead us in addressing many of the federal-level decisions that had direct impact on our state as well as implementing a long-term vision for our state.
I had the opportunity to sit down with State Senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rich Madaleno to discuss the challenges faced by Maryland and why he is confident that he is in the best position to lead us forward. I was more than pleased with what I heard.

Gov. Larry Hogan (R) signed the new tax law on April 11.

It was part of Hogan’s job creation initiative, attached to better-known provisions allowing for special tax incentives for manufacturing in less prosperous areas of Maryland, including parts of Baltimore, Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore.

About 50 people gathered at the Randolph Hills Shopping Center in Rockville on Wednesday morning to show support for the nearby Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, which had received an automated bomb threat by telephone Monday morning.

Students did not evacuate as police checked the interior and exterior of the building Monday. No bomb was found. More than 20 Jewish schools and community centers received similar threats that same day.

“I felt like we needed a place to stand together to show that this is not who we are,” said Aviva Goldfarb, of Chevy Chase, who coordinated the Bagels Not Bombs rally at the shopping center across from the Rockville school.
