Letter to the Editor: The Urgency of the 1st District Primary


For so many of us who believe that a healthy democratic system requires checks and balances, we are alarmed that our government currently has none. For those of us who believe that a leader’s integrity and character matter, it is frightening to live in a nation where so many of our leaders have so little. To regain balance from the one party stranglehold we are in, we independents in the First District need to take the June 26 primary more seriously than ever.

While I am an independent, it is clear that we need to elect the Democratic candidate who has the best chance of winning against the extreme conservative incumbent, Mr. Harris. The most important thing for us independents to do is to register as Democrats by June 5 so we can vote in this crucial primary and then you can easily change back as I plan to do.

So, among the four good Democratic candidates, who is best equipped to win in November and help restore balance and integrity to Washington?

Let me strongly endorse:

* the decorated Army Ranger who led valiantly during 4 combat tours in Afghanistan and one at the Korean DMZ.

* the 4th Generation Marylander, and new Dad, who is married to a savvy Republican wife who staffed on Capitol Hill and was a police officer.

* the Duke and Columbia graduate who helped to root out fraud and employee crime in the banking sector.

* a fresh, new political leader who has always put “ Country above self or party” and “ justice for all- not just the elite”

* the carbon-copy plus of Connor Lamb who recently defeated a strong ultra conservative incumbent in Pennsylvania.

This breath-of-fresh-air, Servant Leader is Jesse Colvin. Check out his positions on the critical issues we face on his website and I think you will see why our county and country need Jesse.

Above all else, fellow independents, let’s vote in this Primary!

  1. This all sounds wonderful until you get down to the Democratic Party politics. Nancy Pelosi has every Democratic Congress person under her thumb. You vote the party line or you are toast. No tax paying citizen of Maryland is getting any type of justice under Democrats. There is no enforcement of immigration laws. We have an illegal enterprise right here in Easton promoting illegals to the detriment of citizens who belong here. Our schools are overrun with non English speaking children who have no intention of ever learning the language of the Country they have invaded.

    Do not be fooled into registering as a Democrat for the primary. If you are an independent and you want to vote for Jesse Colvin in the general election you can do so. I have said this before and I will say it again. His wife being a Republican has nothing to do with how he would conduct himself in Congress. I would advise you to stop repeating that phrase.
