Letter: Say 'no' to Realtor-endorsed candidates

Recently, the real estate group, Realtors PAC also known as RPAC endorsed several commissioner candidates including Frank Robert in District 5 and Dennis Frazier in District 3.

It's a sad day for all of us to see that this upcoming election will include candidates supported, endorsed and funded just to promote affordable housing in our picturesque Carroll County. Affordable housing is a dysfunctional nightmare and creates social problems while damaging our local businesses, property values, and way of life.

Affordable housing spawns community and social problems because it concentrates together welfare dependents, unstable households, drug users, non-workers and criminals. Public housing over the years has become a key component of the vast welfare network with funding and apartments available to those who choose not to join society, but instead ignore it and live off the fruits of the labors of the hardworking public who work hard every day working to create a better future for their children and children's children. There currently is a movement in our county in a manner that we never expected to see. We have special interest groups looking to upend our way of life with affordable housing. As someone who previously lived and worked in real estate years ago I witnessed firsthand as special interest group (PACs) worked hard to permeate the suburban areas working outward with a concept which was once only found in big cities. This is Affordable Housing or Section 8 and I fought it before and its the reason I moved to Carroll after retiring. I wanted to escape the plight that took over Montgomery County.

We must be careful who we support and vote for in our county. Don't let special interest and their henchmen damage and destroy the beautiful county we have here. Vote responsibly this June. Say no to affordable housing and say no to Frank Robert and Dennis Frazier.
