Thanks for mak­ing La Plata can­di­date fo­rum a suc­cess

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Please par­don the Repub­li­can Women of Charles County (RWCC) for sound­ing like we’re hand­ing out Os­car Awards. But we have a lot of peo­ple to thank for the re­sound­ing suc­cess of the La Plata Town Hall Elec­tion Fo­rum held April 19, which was re­ported in the Fri­day, April 21, is­sue of the Mary­land In­de­pen­dent.

The award for “Set De­sign” goes to the Hol­i­day Inn for pro­vid­ing the per­fect venue for this event. Chick-fil-A re­ceives the “Gen­eros­ity Award” for help­ing with the re­fresh­ments. “Best Mu­si­cal Score” goes to Brenda Lowe and Cindy Jones who did a beau­ti­ful job, re­spec­tively, singing “God Bless the USA” and “God Bless Amer­ica.” The “In­spi­ra­tional Award” goes to Dea­con Al­bert Gra­ham who pro­vided the in­vo­ca­tion.

All 10 of La Plata’s town can­di­dates re­ceive awards for “Pas­sion­ate En­gage­ment in Ro­bust Dis­cus­sion.” They sat in the “hot seat” on stage and pro­vided thought­ful and can­did re­sponses to a lot of dif­fer­ent ques­tions.

The high­est award — “Democ­racy in Ac­tion” — goes to the at­ten­dees. The cit­i­zens who took time out of their busy lives to get to know the can­di­dates, ask ques­tions and find out what’s hap­pen­ing in the com­mu­nity made the RWCC-spon­sored event a suc­cess. More im­por­tantly, they make our com­mu­nity a bet­ter place to live. We have ev­ery con­fi­dence that they and oth­ers will be vot­ing in the May 2 elec­tion at the Town Hall in La Plata.

Ev­ery­one who as­sisted, at­tended and par­tic­i­pated in the RWCC-spon­sored event are win­ners. The RWCC, above all, thanks and praises the Almighty Fa­ther, with whom we know all things are pos­si­ble.

If you would like to be­come a mem­ber or as­so­ciate mem­ber of the RWCC, please go to the Repub­li­can Women of Charles County Face­book page.
