Dr. Tim Robinson, Republican candidate for House of Delegates from District 42B is happy to announce the endorsements from both current & former members of the District 42 Republican team.
As they begin the 2018 session of the Maryland General Assembly, Delegates Susan Aumann and Chris West expressed their enthusiastic support of Dr. Robinson’s campaign to represent the people of District 42B and Baltimore County.
Joining with the current 42B delegates in endorsing Dr. Robinson is Deputy Secretary Bill Frank, who represented the district prior to assuming his current position with the State Department of Disabilities in 2015.
While praising Dr. Robinson’s work ethic, the trio stressed the need to elect a delegate who will be able to hit the ground running and make a positive impact on our state government.
Delegate Aumann focused on the how Dr. Robinson’s experience will be a great benefit to the state of Maryland, saying, “Today, more than ever, we need a ‘Doctor in the House.’ And for me, that means electing Dr. Tim Robinson to the House of Delegates from District 42B. The uncertainty of the present health care system demands that we have an experienced and informed medical professional like Dr. Robinson leading the way to create legislation that best serves the healthcare of all Marylanders. And as a true conservative who headed up a small business in Towson, Tim will be at the forefront to lower taxes and reduce spending. I am proud to endorse Dr. Tim Robinson for the House of Delegates from District 42B.”
Delegate Chris West endorsed Dr. Robinson by saying, “Tim Robinson will make a terrific State Delegate. He is smart as a whip, principled, honest and decent. He works very hard; in fact, in recent years, no one has worked harder on behalf of the Baltimore County Republican Party than Tim. In the process, Tim has become my very good personal friend. I have worked for and with leading Maryland Republicans for over forty years, but I would be hard-pressed to name anyone whom I would rather have on my ticket as a running mate than Tim. A big thumbs up for Tim!”
Bill Frank expressed his support, saying, “Dr. Tim Robinson is an articulate and well-informed champion of the conservative point of view. He won’t need on-the-job training in Annapolis. He will be an effective member of the House of Delegates on Day One. I strongly encourage you to join me in voting for Dr. Tm Robinson.”
Delegates Aumann, Frank & West boast a combined 30 years of experience serving the residents of the district in Annapolis
Robinson for Delegate 42B hosted its December fundraiser, featuring Congressman Harris.
The Tim Robinson campaign held an event on Monday, December 4, 2017 at the home of fellow physicians Rick Howard and Laura Pimentel in Cockeysville on Monday, December 4. The event featured Congressman Andy Harris who addressed the crowd of medical professionals and supporters in attendance via video conference who stressed the benefits of electing a physician and business owner to the House of Delegates. Dr. Robinson spoke about the importance of redistricting, healthcare and education and answered questions from the attendees.
Dr. Robinson’s letter to the editor regarding DACA.
Contrary to headlines, President Trump has not ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Rather, he has given Congress a 6 month deadline to take congressional action. The Constitution entrusts Congress, not the President, “to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization”. President Trump is simply putting that function back where it belongs. This is not xenophobia, but appropriate replacement of responsibility back to Congress. DACA should never have been a unilateral executive action by the President, it constitutionally should have been a decision made by Congress. But Congress has become unable to take effective actions. Now, Congress either acts in concert, or fails in concert, to take action.
At this point the constituents of Congressmen and Senators have the ability and responsibility to urge their elected legislators to work bi-partisanly to pass legislation that is affirmative, rather than simply taking every opportunity to savage anything the other party proposes. If those constituents urge lawmakers to make reasonable compromises, deals can be made. If they urge their legislators to reject compromises, DACA will in fact end. This is a forced opportunity for legislators of both parties to act like adults, working together for the American people, rather than for their own narrow personal or Party interests.
Over the last 20 years there has been a slow expansion of presidential prerogative at the expense of constitutionally mandated congressional authority and responsibility. The American public has come to accept the president taking “executive actions” in ways and with an aggressiveness never seen before. Over that same period of time we have seen a progressively more partisan Congress become ever more dysfunctional.
American voters elected an outsider as President, and a major reason was disgust with politics as usual. Congress is being forced to take responsibility for it’s constitutionally mandated duties. It is what voters have been demanding for many years, even if the manner and the messenger are not what many might have been preferred. Even if the reason for forced bi-partisanship is one you don’t like, we are seeing the possibility of working across the aisle on major legislation for the first time in decades.
We need to see the opportunities we have for bi-partisan cooperation in other issues as well, like healthcare, the Iran nuclear agreement, and issues of the Veteran’s Administration.
President Trump is a provocative and politically incorrect individual who successfully used those characteristics to become President. The voters of the United States of America elected him by the rules set down in the Constitution, the same rules that were in place for Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump is the President of the United States. He is not going to be ruled medically unfit for office. He is not going to be indicted. He is not going to be impeached. Like it or not, he IS your President.
