Good Afternoon –
I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of summer - even with it getting really hot again this week. While it’s disappointing that summer is almost over, it’s exciting to welcome a new school year and the start of football season! In addition, the election season is heating up. I've included some updates below:
Senator Ready with Governor Hogan during Session 2018

Upcoming Carroll Event for Craig Wolf, Republican candidate for Attorney General against Brian Frosh:
Join Delegates Krebs, Rose and Shoemaker and I for a special fundraiser at the home of David & Kellie Patton with Republican candidate for Attorney General, Craig Wolf who is taking on incumbent Attorney General Brian Frosh. This is a race that is winnable, even in blue Maryland because of the lack of focus that Attorney General Frosh has paid to issues affecting Marylanders versus constantly playing D.C. politics, suing the President and federal government.
This event will raise much-needed funds for Craig's campaign. If you don't know much about Craig Wolf - please take a moment to check out his resume and record of service and accomplishment. He's a former prosecutor, staffed the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee and took lead role in legislation cracking down on child predators and abusers. He's an active member of the Army Rangers, joining the Army after 9/11 at age 40! His diverse public service and business experience makes him an ideal choice for Attorney General.
For tickets and information, click here. I hope you can join Craig, and my District 5 teammates and I on September 18th in Finksburg!
Interested in Helping Team Hogan?
As we gear up for the general election, it is important that we get as many volunteers involved as possible. Team Hogan had a great network of support for the primary election and we hope to get even more help for the General. If you are interested in helping Governor Hogan, myself, and Delegates Krebs, Rose, and Shoemaker re-elected, please contact Andy Baranauskas at 443-605-4389 or [email protected].
We need help with door-to-door voter engagement, sign placement, and event volunteers. If you know any politically active college students, this is a great way to get school credit through the Hogan Student Fellowship. Thank you for your help!
In the next few weeks I will be announcing the date for the Annual Ready Fall Family Picnic. This is a great event every year, where we get to relax, have some great food, and connect with wonderful voters of Carroll County. I hope you can make it!
