December Chapter Meeting Recap

We had a great meeting this last month of the year with over 30 folks coming out to hear about our activism surrounding the effort to repeal SB236 including a reporter from the Frederick Gazette who wrote an article on SB236 and our Frederick Campaign for Liberty group.
Ben Reddington started the meeting with the next installment of our Bill of Rights Series bringing attention to the TSA and warrant-less wiretapping amongst other current infringements of our 4th amendment rights. Liza Leszczuk gave an update about our recent attendance at the city zoning board meetings in support of Mistero who has been our host for the monthly chapter meetings. Jason Laird updated the group on the resolution that passed at the December meeting of the MD GOP to publicly condemn the passing of SB236 and calling for its repeal. Russell Burdette then apprised the group of our efforts hanging 1000 door hangers in key areas of Frederick in an attempt to raise awareness of the terrible law SB236 that passed this year in Annapolis and our petition to repeal it.
Finally we had Darren Wigfield introduce our keynote speaker Commission Blaine Young who spoke about the details of SB 236, its requirement to create a four-zone tier map, and how the county plans to try to combat it. If you have not already done so, please sign our petition to repeal SB236. Have a Happy New Year! And we hope to see you at our January 2013 meeting on Thursday Jan 17th where we will have guest speaker Howard Woolridge.

Thursday: Blaine Young at Frederick C4L

Maryland Liberty Lovers,

This week should be of interest to everyone who cares about Maryland property rights. Bring your friends, they won't want to miss it.

Blaine Young, President of the Frederick County Commissioners will be on hand to discuss Plan Maryland, an insidious program that will force future MD homes into dense urban areas and prevent farmers from selling land to make ends meet. 

We will also be discussing Frederick C4L's own efforts with regard to SB236, Plan Maryland legislation that was passed in 2012, and our efforts to repeal it.

If you are a Facebook user, please respond to our event HERE, and invite your friends. Please also direct them to our website,

Frederick Campaign for Liberty meets at 7pm on the Third Thursday of every month at Mistero, located at 18 Market Place in downtown Frederick. Mistero is providing the space for our meetings, so please come hungry.

Some of us were over at the old Bon-Ton off route 40 to help out at the "warehouse" the last couple of weeks. It is actually fun sorting all these toys :) If you want to go help out, just drive around back, and you should see the Marines parked near a service entrance with a "Toys for Tots" sign up.

Help give some kids a Merry Christmas!
