Senator Waugh: Harvey Relief - How We Can Help

September 1, 2017

We've all seen Nature's fury descend on the Gulf Coast, pouring the equivalent of the Chesapeake Bay on Texas. We've also seen the best in humanity as neighbor helps neighbor through the crisis.

I've watched my old high school friends struggle through it all with extraordinary American spirit. Many here in Southern Maryland want to help. Some are organizing, but most don't know how they can.

The people on the scene know what they need so I reached out to Texas State Senator Larry Taylor, who represents part of the affected area. Senator Taylor has given me a list of charities in his District that need our help.

I encourage you to take the below list to your community groups, church, or fraternal organizations and connect directly. Every dollar counts. Thank you for your support.

We stand with Texas.

  • Somebody Cares is partnering with churches in the greater Houston area to provide ongoing relief for victims. Right now they are feeding thousands of folks in Friendswood, Pearland, Brazoria County, and Galveston County and will continue their work after the Red Cross, Salvation Army, FEMA, etc. leave.

  • Kidz Harbor is a children's shelter that our office works with frequently. They lost all of their furniture in the flooding, and will need to replace beds, couches, washers and dryers, etc. They would be an excellent partner to work with.

  • The Pearland Neighborhood Center provides a variety of services to local families (rent assistance, food bank, GED scholarships, etc.) They have a short term need for bug spray, sunscreen, bleach, Gatorade, baby wipes and trash bags, but the anticipation is that the needs of the community will drastically increase in the coming weeks and months.

Hogan Launches Pilot Program to Dredge Conowingo Dam

Washintonpost.com, By Josh Hicks, August 8, 2017

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) is moving forward with his goal of reducing sediment overflow from the Conowingo Dam, announcing Tuesday that his administration will request bids to test dredging the reservoir and reusing the materials.

The plan, which would involve removing about 25,000 cubic yards of sediment from an estimated buildup of 31 million cubic yards, could help determine whether a more expansive dredging operation could improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay, he said.

Conowingo Dam, in northeast Maryland on the Susquehanna River, aids in preventing sediment from smothering aquatic grasses that provide food, habitats and oxygen for marine life in the Chesapeake Bay.

“Much of our efforts to protect the bay and safeguard our environment for future generations could be wiped out by the effects of one bad storm,” Hogan said. “This is a growing threat that must be addressed.”

Hogan Admin. To Provide $28.4 Million in Grants for Local Roads

August 31 Deadline Set for Transportation Grant Application Form

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the administration is making $38,390,961 in grants available for local roads in Baltimore City and municipalities and counties from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore. The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) has released the application that needs to be submitted by August 31. The grants will be awarded to jurisdictions based on the existing formula for the distribution of Highway User Revenues (HURs).

“Since the beginning of our administration, we have been committed to investing in roads and bridges across the state,” said Governor Hogan. “Our local jurisdictions rely on these crucial funds for long-overdue road projects that impact the safety and quality of life of our citizens.”

Maryland Progressives Flirting With Socialism

It's baffling just how out of touch Maryland Progressives are with the electorate. So far, six opponents have declared against Governor Hogan. Democrats are obsessed with ousting the Governor with a nearly 70% approval rating - the second highest in the Nation.

Meanwhile, Governor Hogan continues to improve Maryland's business climate - rising 10 spots. However, Marylanders are still reeling from excessive taxes levied under O'Malley's watch and nonstop partisan pushback against Governor Hogan. As a result, the middle class and retirees are worried about Progressive Democrats regaining control.

Here is why: Progressives have forced over 82% of the state's budget on autopilot, attempted to make Maryland a Sanctuary State, and gerrymandered districts in their favor. This is service unto themselves, not the electorate. Progressives have forgotten the working men and women of Maryland.

Maryland Democrats have been hijacked by Bernie Sanders and the Progressive-Socialist agenda!
