Letter: Support 'Hogan Team' in legislature, Judge Titus

Maryland, a blue state, is blessed to have an incredibly popular Republican governor. His approval rating continues to bounce around 80 percent and nationally, he is recognized as the second-most popular governor. He is even more popular in Carroll County, which gave him 83 percent of the vote in the last election.

At a recent sold out event for the District 5 Team, candidates were lining up to have their picture taken with the gregarious Governor.


At this event, Gov. Hogan shared his enthusiastic endorsements. Richard Titus for Circuit Court Judge, Dels. Susan Krebs, April Rose and Haven Shoemaker and Sen. Justin Ready for the State Legislature.

These public servants are all long-time residents of Carroll County and proven leaders in their offices.

When Gov. Hogan appointed Judge Richard Titus to the Circuit Court it was through an arduous process.

A respected attorney with deep Carroll County roots, Judge Titus has served the citizens of Carroll County well with a calm demeanor and common sense application of the law. Gov. Hogan has asked that you vote to retain his choice for Circuit Court Judge Richard Titus.

Likewise, Gov. Hogan has asked Republican Primary voters to stand with him and his work to reduce our tax burden, cut wasteful spending and stand up for our constitutional rights by sending Dels. Krebs, Rose and Shoemaker and Sen. Ready back to Annapolis to work with him to continue to Change Maryland for the better.

Carroll County primary voters, please join me in honoring the wishes of our popular governor. Retain Judge Richard Titus and support the District 5 Team.
