RALE Recommends "Good Government" Candidates in June 24 Primary
RALE endorses Democratic, Republican and non-partisan candidates who have taken a stand against overdevelopment that will lead to higher taxes, eliminate productive farmland, and overburden Frederick County's schools, roads, water supplies, septic systems, sewer systems, and emergency services.
We also endorse candidates who are committed to creating a new government for Frederick County that is ethical, trustworthy, responsive to its citizens, and a responsible steward of taxpayer dollars.

Ready, Set, Vote!
This election year, starting with the primary on June 24, is one of the most significant in Frederick County history. Are you ready to vote? Here are some things to keep in mind:
The Votes Are In, But We Are Not Done
Thank you for everyone in the community that came out again and again and again, speaking your mind so eloquently and sincerely. Heck -- thank you so much for the people that came out for the first time. I know that there were a number of new people at the April 8th hearing. Good for you, seriously!
They voted in favor. We knew it was coming. It's easy to get swept up in the fervor of hearing so many great reasons for them to not approve. But they approved anyway. Don't be surprised. Don't be depressed. Just remember four words and I hope these apply to you as well as me: We Are Not Done.
In the coming days, we'll talk about what comes next. We'll talk about the elections and how it relates to this development. And yeah -- we'll talk about signs!
Take care. Thank you. This was hard, but this was good, and once again: We Are Not Done.
