More than 100 AFP Members and citizens came together at Brew River last night to hear what Congressional Candidate Andy Harris had to say. Andy gave a fantastic speech and opened the floor to questions. One young man stood up and shared his concerns about his generation failing to believe the United States was as great a Country as other generations believe it is. Andy thanked the young man and stated, America is still the greatest Country in the world. Why else would 250 million illegals be coming here if their Country was so great.
Another individual asked, if you're elected to Congress, I believe our government is too big. If you agree, what departments would you eliminate. Andy, (without hesitation) said, the Department of Education. How can the Feds know what your children here in Wicomico County want and need. They probably don't even know where Wicomico County is. They'd say, well, you drive to Ocean City and take that bypass, yeah, that's Wicomico County.
There were some 100+ people in the crowd and for what it's worth, none of them walked away disappointed. Great work AFP. You brought in a great crowd, great questions and as always Andy was direct and straight forward answering every one's questions. I'm glad I found the time to make it to this meeting after all.
