Why I Support Rob Garagiola for Congress

With all the challenges facing our country, it is vitally important we make sure we are represented by someone focused on fighting for the middle class, creating jobs and growing our economy.

As you may know, District 39 is no longer part of Congressman Chris Van Hollen's district. We are now represented by Congressman Roscoe Bartlett. I’ve decided to endorse one of Congressman Bartlett's opponents—Rob Garagiola of Germantown—and am writing to tell you why.

With all the challenges facing our country, it is vitally important we make sure we are represented by someone focused on fighting for the middle class, creating jobs and growing our economy. That’s why I’m asking you to join me in supporting State Sen. Rob Garagiola in the April 3rd Democratic Primary. Before serving as a state senator, Rob served our nation in uniform as a Sergeant in the 450th Civil Affairs Battalion and the 150th JAG Detachment. The proud father of three kids in public schools, Rob knows the issues our families face on a daily basis. That’s why Rob has already been endorsed by the AFL-CIO, the League of Conservation Voters,
teachers, fire fighters, police officers, and numerous other Democratic organizations and elected
officials. They know what I know: Rob Garagiola is the best Democrat running to represent us
in Congress.

Don’t forget to cast your ballot for Rob Garagiola on Tuesday, April 3 to send someone to stand up for the middle class in Congress. Also, if you’d like to vote early, you can do so from Saturday,
March 24 to Thursday, March 29. Click here to find out where you can cast your ballot early.

Thanks,

Shane Robinson

Maryland delegate, District 39

Do you, Shane Robinson, and/or Rob Garagiola support Term Limits for elected representatives?

Before I can consider Rob Garagiola for Congress, he needs to drop his sponsorship for state of Maryland Bond Bill SB459. This misleading and deceptive piece of legislation is listed as a request for a grant for the design and construction of South Valley Park in Montgomery Village. In truth, it is a $125,000 grant to build a $250,000 restroom and concession. With 232 Bond Bills to decide on, the sponsors are banking the exhaustion of their fellow legislators who will glance at the bill title and short synopsis and conclude that they can support a park. But would these legislators vote for a $125,000 restroom and concession strand? Apparently the bill sponsors didn’t think so. Shane Robinson is also a sponsor of companion bill HB648 containing the same misleading and deceptive language. Behind all of this is Senator Nancy King, the Montgomery Village Foundation Board of Directors, and the MVF Recreation Committee where the disingenuous language originated over the objections of dozens of Village residents who spoke out in opposition to the project at Resident’s Time at the MVF board meeting on February 23. This was not democracy in action.

He supports a sanctuary state and county policy that has failed us all. Way past time to act. The flood of impoverished people ( legal and illegal) has pushed up the poverty rate and unemployment rate across the nation. Obama Admin has been very slow to act and too eager to pander to special interest groups and those that profit from illegal aliens. Sanctuary counties and cities have paid a high price for pandering too. Time for new leadership.
