On November 29th, the Committee will vote of their nominations for the Board of Elections position in
, approving the Special Committees and discussing the events of last week in an open forum. Baltimore County
As you all know, there is a group of members in the Committee who do not want me as Chairman. According to the by-laws, the Chairman can not be removed from office except “as otherwise provided by Maryland Law.” (Article 1, Section 1.H.3) According to several sources, this group is going to try to impeach me from office.
My message to them: let’s save ourselves a lot of wasted time and energy fighting over scraps of power and bring your charges now! Here is information on Impeachment from the Constitution of the State of
3.26 - Impeachments.
The House of Delegates shall have the sole power of impeachment in all cases; but a majority of all the members elected must concur in the impeachment. All impeachments shall be tried by the Senate, and when sitting for that purpose, the Senators shall be on oath, or affirmation, to do justice according to the law and evidence; but no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two-thirds of all the Senators elected.
I was elected Chairman by the Republican voters of
for the purpose of helping our Republican candidates to win elective office. Under Maryland Law, this is the only way that you can remove me from office. I will continue to serve as Chairman, with the powers and duties of that office, until the General Assembly of the State of Baltimore County decides otherwise. Maryland
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and see you on Monday, the 29th
