I hope all the moms out there had a fantastic Mother’s Day. Brooklyn, Caleb and I enjoyed honoring Ruth and my mom and mother-in-law – we all should be so thankful for the blessing of the mothers in our lives and all the women who’ve made a positive impact.

Below is an update on the primary elections tomorrow, Johns Hopkins University protests about Israel attacking Hamas, as well as information on several upcoming events in Carroll County:

Interview on WBAL Radio about Johns Hopkins Protest & Encampments

Throughout the past few weeks, protestors have taken over college campuses opposing Israel’s defensive war against Hamas in Gaza. In many cases, these protests have become unruly, and turned from peaceful protests to full-on encampments.

Johns Hopkins began to see protestors on campus nearly two weeks ago. They started peacefully but immediately began to violate university rules about protesting so Delegate Tomlinson, Delegate Rose and I released a statement urging the University administration to get a grip on the situation before it got out of hand. Unfortunately, things did start to get out of hand but Johns Hopkins finally followed our advice, stepped up and essentially forced the protestors to remove their barriers and encampment.

I spoke with Torrey Snow on his show on WBAL 1090 AM about why we made our statement and what the university and others should be thinking about as they deal with protests like these. Click here to listen to the interview, it’s about 12 minutes long.
