I do not think “normal” is possible without dealing with systemic racism in our communities including Harford County. This means the Republican Party, if it intends to be relevant in Harford County, needs to lead the struggle for equality and justice. Advocating “law and order” consistent with views of GOP national politicians only denies the reality which black and brown people face every day. Rather, we are looking for creative solutions for real change.
Although I do not think this should be a partisan issue, Republicans are in the majority and so bear the responsibility to lead.
