“Can you hear us now? They surely will after this!
Come one and all! Here is your golden opportunity, if we all stand together!”
Wed, Feb 29, Calling all groups, club members to join in! Come to Annapolis. Demonstrate to legislators that you don’t want any more of this reckless taxing and spending. It is harming Maryland’s economy, our family budgets and our jobs!
Times and details:
Realtors from all over the state will attend from 9:15 to 11 am. To protest the elimination of the mortgage deduction.
Legislators get out of session in the Statehouse about 11 am. This is your chance to visit offices, especially Democrats offices. (They hold the majority and control the outcome of the tax and spending votes.) Office visits are really important.
1 pm – 4 or 5 pm—Legislators are in committee hearings. The most important area to be is House Appropriations and Ways & Means. These committees will be hearing the Budget Financing and Reconciliation Act, HB 87 (BRFA) the following day. You are welcome to go in and listen to a bit of the hearings. Or simply converge in the hallway between the two committees.
What we need to do is, by our presence and opinion, persuade legislators to vote with us against higher taxes and big spending!
Identify yourselves and your issue(s). Make up your own name badges to wear. Or cut out and wear the one that is attached.
Above all, forward this to your list and bring a friend. It is high time that legislators and the governor start paying attention! They won’t unless we show up!
Bring a lunch. Park at Naval Academy Stadium. Take the shuttle down the road to the government buildings.
