Here is a press release from Sallie Taylor:

On January 19, Sallie Taylor filed for Maryland House of Delegate and issued the following statement:

The power of the government comes from the people. Each of us can better make our own decisions regarding how we spend our money, educate our children and keep healthy better than any government bureaucracy or official. We are a free people but the government, that we have put in place over the years to serve us and to give us honest information, has over stepped its bounds and it has to stop. I am running to restore our founding governing principles. For the next 5 months, I will be out in Carroll County meeting as many people as I can and ask for their vote… And the voters will be conducting job interviews with all the candidates. I hope that I can earn the job. If elected, the most solemn pledge that I can make is I will never forget that I work for the people.

As the campaign unfolds, I will have more in-depth discussions of the issues but I will give a brief outline of some: 1. I am against government mandates in general and in particular covid experimental vaccines mandates. 2. I am against the Critical Race Theory practices in our schools. 3. I support funding the police. 4. We need more public discloser of government actions. 5. I support election reform including, but not limited to, election audits and verifiable Voter ID. 6. Most importantly, we need to return to founding principles.

We currently have one other candidate that has filed in District 5: current Carroll County Commissioner Dennis E. Frazier.

We know that current District 5 Delegate Haven Shoemaker is not running for reelection in 2022 (he is running for Carroll County State’s Attorney in 2022).

I have been told that the other two current Delegates from District 5 are planning to run in 2022: Susan Krebs and April Rose.

I have been told that there are two other well known names in the county that are planning to run in District 5 in 2022…I will not mention them by name here in this article because I have not seen it officially announced or an official filing…but I believe they both will enter the race before the February 22nd deadline.

So the District 5 Delegate race is shaping up to be a very interesting race in 2022.

Stay tuned as I will continue to cover candidate filings and maybe…just maybe…I can get a few of the candidates to join me for online interviews in February.

The new Maryland Legislative Redistricting lines will move me out of District 5 and into that new District 42C. Even so, I will pay close attention to District 5 for Carroll County residents.
