From Harford County Republican Central Committee member Frank Dupree:
My name is Frank, and I am a Republican. I have attended numerous tea parties over the past 18 months and I am very excited about the upcoming elections.
I would like to thank the voters of Harford County for electing me to the Republican Central Committee because I think we can really take advantage of the resurgence of conservative values to get the Maryland tax-and-spend situation under control.
And while I have your attention, I would like to point out that I am proud to be a home schooler, proud to be a Christian, proud to live in Aberdeen, and proud to be an American of African descent. Contrary to news reports, I have never felt uncomfortable at a Tea Party or republican club meeting. I signed the Liberty Pledge to secure freedom for all Marylanders, and I was proud to have my photo on the literature we mailed and passed out at the polls.
There are many black Republicans seeking Congressional seats in the US: 12 of them, all impressive in their own ways. In Maryland, we even have a former Marine Major in Charles Lollar, challenging Steny Hoyer for the MD-5 seat.
This is a great opportunity for us to look past race and start looking at principles. I support candidates who care about job creation, fair taxes, and economic prosperity. I support candidates that put community, family, and God above government.
Consider what you stand for, and consider voting Republican this year.
Frank A. Dupree
Good letter Frank! Unfortunately, we’ll never see it published in the Baltimore Sun, Washington Post, or NY Times.
Rick Saffery says
I too think Mr.Dupree’s article is outstanding! I’ll be happy to cross-post it to the Baltimore Sun via their candidates blog.
What do you say Mr.Dupree, I’ll gladly repost your article to the Sun’s website pending your approval?
Bruce O'H. says
Mr. Dupree, your letter illustrates that American Patriot Principles have, nor represent, any color. Well said, sir.
Joan Ryder says
Frank, You are a great American and I am proud to be on the Republican Central Committee with you!
An Oldtime Harford county-ite says
Congratulations Frank, I am happy that you are serving on the central committee. This election is so critical to the future of both the state and our country. Americans, need to be aware.
The next Tea Party event is scheduled on Oct. 25, 2010, at Shamrock Park, Lee Way and Hickory Avenue, in Bel Air, MD, at 6:00pm. It is a get out the vote event. The event is free, and open to all. Come and see for yourselves what the Taxed Enough Already crowd has to say.

I am a republican and TEA Party member and although I never met you I’m glad to have you as a fellow republican and RCC member.We need people with your conservative views to help dig us out of the hole the dems have gotten us into. Good letter.
I voted for you Frank without knowing much about you. THANK YOU for your eloquent, truthful letter. Now I’m SUPER GLAD I gave you my vote!
