Time for PG County to wake up and vote this woman out of office. She has disgraced the Legal Immigrant and Maryland Citizen with her support for Illegal Immigration, along with her pals, Vallario, Ramirez, Lee, Harrington, Gay Rights Activist Madaleno, Ana Sol, Donna Edwards, Chris Van Hollen, Ben "I Dont Care What you Say" Barnes, Frush, and so on. Time for Maryland to make changes. Vote out the Illegal Alien supporters and help put Maryland back on a path for following the laws and to stop funding Casa De Maryland with our Tax Dollars, who blatantly state, we will help you find work regardless of your Immigration Status. Time to Pink Slip Pena. Time to send her on Vacation in November. Yes, she is on top of everything, including allowing Casa De Maryland to continue it’s pandering for Tax Dollars in Maryland, she has also sided with Governor O’Malley on his outlandish budgets and spending sprees and tax increases, she has assisted in forcing Jobs out of Maryland, thats what I call someone who truly assists the community she represents, that’s True Leadership at it’s core. Please send her your thoughts on her position in our State House. She is not grass roots, if she was, she would be a Republican and Constitutionalist, not a Socialist supporting Illegal Immigration. Time for PG County to wake up. Joe Vallario is already in danger of loosing his seat, let’s keep up the good work exposing those who would allow your tax dollars to be abused by Casa De Maryland. Gustavo Torres, head of Casa De Maryland receives donations from Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and is receiving support from the FMLN as well, La Raza, Centro Familia. Time from them to be voted out and restore true change in Maryland.
Del. Joseline Peña-Melnyk of College Park (D) has filed for re-election in the state’s 21st district. Peña-Melnyk, who ran an independent grass-roots campaign in 2006, said she wants to continue fighting for the needs of the people who elected her four years ago.
"I really love the work," she said. "I feel like I have represented the community from my heart really well. I have given this job more than 100 percent."
Peña-Melnyk was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in the Bronx in a single-parent household. Her 2006 campaign focused on how her status as a political outsider helped her relate to and serve the needs of the constituents in the district. Four years later, Peña-Melnyk said that focus remains constant, even though she will seek re-election on a slate that includes fellow district 21 incumbents Sen. James C. Rosapepe (D) and delegates Benjamin Barnes (D) and Barbara Frush (D).
"I have always been an independent voice," she said. "Even if I’m on the slate, I’m still me."
