Issue Statements

1. ASSISTANCE TO THE POOR.  Funding in Maryland’s budget should be maintained, and when necessary, increased to provide low-income residents access to basic necessities, such as food, housing, and healthcare. 

2. ABORTION. Maryland is one of four States to voluntarily direct state Medicaid funds to pay for all or most medically necessary abortions. The Maryland General Assembly should pass legislation to restrict the use of taxpayer dollars for abortion.

3. IMMIGRATION. Maryland should prioritize protecting family unity by passing legislation that, except for cases involving individuals with serious criminal records, limits the participation of local law agencies in federal immigration enforcement efforts.

4. K-12 EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS. The State of Maryland should continue to expand existing funding to provide scholarships for low-income students who wish to attend the K-12 nonpublic school best suited for their educational needs.  

5. PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED SUICIDE BAN. In 1999, the Maryland General Assembly passed legislation making it a felony for an individual to assist in another individual’s suicide.  Maryland should uphold the law in its current form and reject legislation to legalize the practice of physician-assisted suicide.

Declaraciones de las Temas

1. AYUDA PARA LOS POBRES.  Se debe mantener el financiamiento en el presupuesto de Maryland, y cuando sea necesario, aumentar para proporcionar a los residentes de bajos ingresos acceso a las necesidades básicas, como alimentos, vivienda y atención médica.

2. EL ABORTO. Maryland es uno de los cuatro estados que dirige voluntariamente fondos estatales de Medicaid para pagar todos o la mayoría de los abortos médicamente necesarios. La Asamblea General de Maryland debería aprobar legislación para restringir el uso del dinero de los contribuyentes para el aborto.

3. INMIGRACIÓN. Maryland debería priorizar la protección de la unidad familiar mediante la aprobación de legislación que, excepto en casos que involucren a personas con antecedentes penales graves, limite la participación de las agencias locales de la ley en los esfuerzos federales de aplicación de la ley de inmigración.

4. OPCIONES EDUCATIVAS PARA K-12. El estado de Maryland debe continuar aumentando los fondos existentes que proporcionan becas a estudiantes de bajos ingresos que deseen asistir a la escuela no pública K-12 más adecuada para sus necesidades educativas. 

5. PROHIBICIÓN DEL SUICIDIO MÉDICAMENTE ASISTIDO. En 1999, la Asamblea General de Maryland aprobó una legislación por la cual es un delito grave que un individuo ayude en el suicidio de otra persona. Maryland debe mantener la ley en su forma actual y rechazar la legislación para legalizar la práctica del suicidio asistido por un médico.

Candidate Survey 2018: General Assembly

Every election year, the Maryland Catholic Conference surveys the state’s candidates for General Assembly about their positions regarding issues of interest to Catholics. The responses of the Democratic and Republican general election candidates are below. The candidates were asked to either “Agree” or “Disagree” with a list of issue statements (see left side of this page). "Did Not Respond" to a statement means the candidate did not choose a position on that issue. Candidates were also given the opportunity to provide a brief statement at the end of the survey on why Maryland Catholics should vote for them.

As an evangelical Christian I approach all situations with a Biblical worldview. I believe that we were all created in the image of God and that all people are of inherent sacred value. I believe that we should support traditional families values as the cornerstone of a sound and practical matter for our culture. In my weakness as a human I seek to follow the example of Christ to model servant leadership at all times.

A vote for Neil Parrott is a pro-life, pro-traditional family, pro-school choice, and pro-American vote that you can be proud of. I believe that the life of every human being is valuable. Lives need to be protected whether it is in the womb or at the end of life. For several years I have introduced and/or co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Child Unborn Protection Act that would eliminate late-term abortions. Also, one of my top priorities has been to work to stop euthanasia laws from passing.

I am a life-long Catholic and actively involved in my parish, having served as past chairman of the Finance Committee and currently serve as a lector. I have sponsored bills in the HOD to restrict abortions, and to defend life. I am a product of Catholic schools, approach elected office with humility. I hold traditional, conservative values, both fiscally and socially. I believe that abortion should be allowed only in the cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother.

But sharing our belief in God and loving each other is exactly what we need now. We will always have the poor, we need to give them a hand up. Immigration laws have to come from our Federal Legislators. They need to correct the immigration problem

I have spent a lifetime protecting our citizens. Whether as a member of the military or a law enforcement career spanning over 25 years (a capacity I still serve in today), "service" above one's self is all I've ever known. It has been a true privilege to serve in the Maryland House of Delegates over the past 4 years with a track record of family and community first approach. It is my hope to continue that service and expand on changing Maryland for the better of ALL our citizens...

In addition to my most important jobs of being a wife and mom, I’m a lawyer and an activist. I fight for what I believe in. As a delegate, I will do the same. I want to leave my daughters a world that they deserve. I want a world where everyone has access to healthcare, where schools are safe and fully funded, and jobs pay a living and fair wage. I’m sick of politicians in Annapolis who vote solely based on their party. It’s time to put people over politics.

I believe I share the values of Maryland Catholics. Many members of my family lived in poverty for much of their youth and I was taught to help the poor and impoverished whenever I could. We all share the same goals in providing for a more healthy and prosperous life for the poor but we have differing views on how to get there. I was raised in a working class family who thrived on manufacturing and skilled trades. I believe the best program we can provide for Marylanders is a good job.

It is my goal and to see what I can do to assist in bridging communities. People have polarized positions from one another. It is my goal to help individuals begin the process of saying that while they may be on different sides they have much in common. I have the skills and the background to bridge the gap. So that we can move forward as opposed to continuance of being stuck and or detoured for being able to accomplish things that both you and I want and that our children need.

As the oldest son of Mother Seton's 2nd miracle Ann O'Neill, Catholics can be sure that I will act in the best interest of humanity. I have demonstrated this as a father, business owner and JHU grad. As a state inspector, I have acquired unique insight into Maryland’s transportation safety issues; I can use this to improve our individual safety. My pay-to-work program will allow undocumented workers to purchase an annual right to work for $1000.00, raising $1billion annually for Maryland.

As I have done for over 15 years, I will focus on strengthening families. Threats to families are coming in the forms of opioids, recreational marijuana, human trafficking, gang violence, gambling, and illegal immigration, all of which weaken the building blocks to the quality of life in our beautiful state. Families need good jobs, a high quality education, a safe neighborhood, affordable health care, and shorter commutes to work. I will work fiercely on these issues as your Delegate.

Because the family is the basic unit of society, I support legislation that strengthens all families. Please stand with me.

I have been working for social justice since I was 10 years old. My professional work focuses on bringing mediation and restorative practices into schools, prisons, court, and communities. My community work focuses on public health, environmental sustainability, and economic justice in our food system. My activism has included work to abolish the death penalty in Maryland (in partnership with the Maryland Catholic Conference) and to protect Dreamers.

We need change in the General Assembly towards lower taxes and more free market solutions; and more accountability to taxpayers and citizens for better public education, such as to de-centralize the system; to reduce waste and mismanagement in excessive administrative spending, and bring more choice and competition in its operation at the grassroots level.

Maryland Catholics should vote for me because I represent the voice of the voiceless and the unborn. Many Americans like me and you who pay taxes are opposed to abortion, therefore it's morally wrong to use tax dollars to fund abortion. Those who choose abortions are often minors or young women with insufficient life experience to understand fully what they are doing. Many have lifelong regrets afterward.

As a lifelong Catholic, I am concerned about the deep crisis in our Church. The corruption of the Church's leadership and clergy is an existential threat. But you wouldn't know it from reading this survey. The Roman Curia must be cleaned out, top to bottom. Pedophiles and their enablers must be held criminally responsible. Pope Francis must act or step down. The world Church is hungry for leadership.

I've taken a leadership role on many issues but there's more work to do and I hope to have the opportunity to continue my service.

I was born in Maryland and raised my family here. My experiences in the military, and as a small business owner, have provided an exceptional perspective on government overregulation, and its effects on the day-to-day lives of citizens. I would set my priorities on lowering taxes, setting term limits, and reducing regulations that stifle our economy. A healthy economy would create higher paying jobs, thus eliminating the large tax burden placed on Maryland’s citizens.

They stressed the importance of education and perseverance to achieve a better life. I will take these values to Annapolis.

As a Catholic educated in Catholic schools, I embrace our Church's value of treating others with respect and dignity. Deployed as an Army Ranger, I attended Mass overseas and prayed with the chaplain before every mission. Pope Francis warned about the perils of a church "obsessed" with a few hot-button issues, and has called for a "new balance" that focuses renewed attention on the poor. The same perils exist in politics. My platform is "Back to Basics,” and focuses on the entire community.

My values & principles are strongly rooted in the Catholic Church. I evaluate each bill I vote on based upon these considerations.

I support reducing government cost & lowering taxes leading to more employment & less dependency on government. I support legal immigration. It is Congress’ responsibility to establish our immigration laws, not the State of Maryland.

I am a proud Catholic who uses my faith to help guide my decision-making process.

In regards to immigration, I believe firmly that a country has the right to regulate its borders and do not believe in passing state-level legislation that would ask local law enforcement to not work with, and potentially against, federal authorities. We need unity, not division.

I graduated from The CUA Columbus School of Law. There is debate in the Catholic community as to how to help people.

I would work hard to promote them.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...” These words were clear and understood our rights came from God and not "government".

One of our nation’s greatest strengths is the freedom to worship freely and without fear. We must never forget that religious freedom requires tolerance of beliefs that may not align with one’s own beliefs. Decisions about life, suffering and death are made with great personal reflection and struggle. Preservation of an individual’s right to make choices compatible with their personal spiritual beliefs is the basis for protecting the religious freedom so dear to us all.

While we must maintain a separation of church and state, people of all religions should be comfortable in practicing their values. Abortion: State resources to protect the health of patients should not be limited. Permitting limitations in this case could lead to additional exclusions of medical coverage. K-12: On non-public funding—we have limited resources and severely underfund public education. I would like to ensure that our public education system meets the educational needs of students.

I was raised as a parishioner at Immaculate Heart of Mary, then St. Joseph's Parish. My Catholic upbringing created the roots of who I am as a person today. I will legislate and lead with compassion and strive for social justice.

I successfully obtained a substantial State bond to assist Stella Maris in renovating and upgrading one of its older wings. I co-sponsored an anti-abortion bill this year. While I was a supporter of the PAS bill, which died when it became clear that it was about 40 votes short of the number needed for passage, I have come to believe that the bill was badly flawed. I would be pleased to discuss my evolving views on this topic.

As a mother of three boys with challenges, an educational advocate, a developmental psychologist and a member of the MD State Board of Education, I have a track record of improving the lives of families in Maryland. I am committed to making choices with integrity, responsiveness, and transparency that are right for 42B families and not influenced by any other special interest. I will work across the political aisle to bring people together rather than work to divide us.

I was educated at Calvert Hall. It was there that the timeless values of love for God, family & country were reinforced in me. It is important that those values remain timeless in state government as well. It is also important that we put our shared faith in action & not attempt to rely on government intervention to solve the problems we should resolve as good Catholics. It is too easy today to look at our problems & try to shift the responsibility of solving those problems to the government.

I have consistently stood up for core Catholic values, including protecting the planet and the vulnerable. I have worked to end discrimination and to protect our green spaces and our bay. I have stood up for immigrants’ rights, led the fight to make make sure all young people have a home and every family has access to water. I have worked to see that every child can go to a good school, stop cruel treatment of pregnant prisoners, end the death penalty, and extend health care to more Marylanders.

Jesus Christ commanded us to take care of “the least of these” by clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, provide shelter to those without, and to care for those who are sick and without family. My morals, values and integrity are tied to these teachings that guide my personal and professional decisions every day. As a faith-based woman, daughter of immigrants, I am seeking office to make changes that build and strengthen families spiritually, physically, emotionally, and economically.

As a product of a Jesuit high school, I strive to adhere to the value of being a "man for others" each day in office. This work is about service to others, and I believe deeply that all lives have value and worth. My Catholic upbringing impacts who I am and influences me deeply. I hope to earn my constituents' votes by upholding these principles everyday and by demonstrating my commitment to creating strong communities.

My values are biblical, and I believe in less government. I am pro ALL LIFE from inception to the grave. Society needs to realize the more we depend on the tax programs of the government the less we are free to practice what Jesus has already commanded us to do. I believe in building community from the ground up. When we are in community with our neighbors, we can recognize their needs and help.

All people should vote as they choose. But any Marylander who believes that: health care is a human right, all people are equal, every American has the right to vote and their right to vote should be protected, every person has the right to worship - or not worship - as they choose, every woman has the right to control her own fertility, and every person should be guaranteed access to quality public education and safe communities can feel confident that I will work for those goals.

As a practicing Catholic, I take the values I have learned to work with me on behalf of the people of Dist 46. My faith requires that I advocate for equity, justice, and mercy, and that I recognize the God-given value in every person, and help every child reach his/her potential by breaking down barriers and increasing opportunity. I have passed bills to support our public schools, improve our public transit, and end gun violence through community-based programs (see www.brookelierman.com).

1. I will not only fight to restrict state funding for abortion, but work to pass legislation to roll back legal protections for it. 2. I will fight to pass paid family leave protections. 3. I will fight to protect the religious liberties of all faith organizations, not just churches. 4. I will promote legislation that protects parents and children from the threat of deportation. 5. I will support school vouchers and other opportunities to promote educational choice, including homeschooling.
