Typical of many a Baltimore Sun writer, Erin Cox’s homework was not well done as evidenced with her article, “Former Venable chair Shea weighs run for governor,” 3-23-17. While stating that James Shea plans to make a decision about running for governor by the summer, he would join a potential field of more than a half-dozen Democrats considering a run for the office. What Ms. Cox doesn’t understand is there is already one candidate who is running for the office. That individual is Ralph Jaffe who will file as a Democratic candidate for Governor this coming May.
For your information he is the only one who is committed to getting rid of all the corruption in Maryland government – corruption which is all over the place – in the judiciary, the legislature, in the executive branch, and yes, even in the media. Ralph Jaffe is the only candidate who filed a complaint against Mayor Pugh for breaking the financial campaign laws. That investigation is still going on. Ralph Jaffe is the only candidate who filed a complaint against State’s Attorney for Baltimore City Marilyn Mosby for her reckless behavior as a persecutor rather than a prosecutor. And that investigation is still going on.
Ralph Jaffe is the only candidate committed to getting money out of politics. He will not take campaign contributions like the other candidates do because they are disguised bribes. He is the only one committed to rejecting the concept of career politicians as he will serve one term only, not like the other candidates who care more about their own fame, power, and money rather than doling what is right for their constituents.
Ralph Jaffe is the only one speaking the truth about the shortage of police officers in Baltimore City. He is the only one who has put forth a tutor-mentor program now in the process of possibly becoming a pilot program. It is designed to make the Baltimore City public education system more effective. And, Ralph Jaffe is the only one who is committed to telling the truth, not some of the time, but all of the time.
For people fed up with all of the moral bankruptcy going on in our state, here is a chance to do something about it. Join the Jaffe Movement.
