Our Philosophy

We are the voice of Republicans in Kent County, Maryland.  We are not part of the professional political class. We are just a bunch of regular people who love their country and county, and believe in the American exceptionalism.  We are part of the Trump movement and therefore we support our President's political and economic agenda! Our humble desire is to promote and defend the Republican principles of small government, freedom, and free market capitalism against the aggressive rise of Progressive-Socialist ideas that have taken over politics over our culture, traditions, and values.

In the spirit of tolerance to other points of view, we are open to any constructive dialog, new ideas, suggestions, and even criticism.  We cannot wait to hear from you!

In the end, just a reminder to all of you, that our Central Committee is also the official link between Maryland GOP and the people of Kent County who share our vision.  Please continue to check our website and Facebook page.
