Preserving Carroll's heritage and freedoms
Those that disregard the Constitution and the role of God
in our country are those that know the least about either.

to all of my supporters and constituents that propelled us to a decisive 20 point lead over my challenger in yesterday's primary. I appreciate your loyalty, moral support, and financial support. Following is an excerpt from the Sunpaper News Report:
Two incumbents ousted in Carroll commissioners race
June 25, 2014|By S. Wayne Carter Jr., Baltimore Sun Media Group
With school funding one of the top issues in the Carroll County Commissioners’ race, Republican candidates who received the backing of the local teachers’ union won in four of the five districts, ousting two incumbents in the process.
But conservative incumbent Richard Rothschild — who lacked the union’s support — was the leading voting-getter among all commissioner candidates with nearly all the precincts reporting. Rothschild held off a challenge from Barbara Biller, who had a slim lead after early voting was tabulated. But Rothschild was stronger at the polls on Election Day.

Commissioner Rothschild is the "face of conservatism in Carroll County." The Northern News, June 20, 2013

“ Richard is a conservative with a backbone. He understands what made America great and fights tirelessly to preserve the fundamental principles of limited government and personal freedom. He has demonstrated great courage under fire", Ellen Sauerbrey, former Conservative Gubernatorial Candidate

Are you troubled by increasing intrusions of government into our lives and pocketbooks?
Are you tired of paying property taxes that feel more like a second mortgage?
Instead of serving us, government wastes money and attempts to force its will upon us.
The PATHWAYS Plan was a perfect example. I am proud to have stood shoulder to shoulder with other citizens to defeat this unwise and unpopular Plan.
Government attempts to change our beautiful neighborhoods with office parks, rezoning, overlay gimmicks, and sponsored social initiatives are simply unacceptable.
I am a common-sense no-nonsense person. Most of you understand that unwise fiscal and social policies are bankrupting America. You want representatives who will restore financial discipline; and sanity to social policies.
As a Commissioner with proven experience and business judgment, I am resisting social engineering mandates from the State and Federal governments that threaten our rural lifestyle. Additionally, I believe you will feel refreshed by my common-sense platform that places citizens ahead of government.
My beliefs are straightforward: As government grows bigger, the rights of individual citizens grow smaller.
I continue to govern based on five strategic promises I refer to as MY CARROLL COMMITMENTS:
(1) To Restrain government and preserve your Constitutional Rights and Property Values;
(2) To Preserve our rural heritage and lifestyle;
(3) To Budget with common sense; reduce debt; use creativity to solve problems without wasting any taxpayer money;
(4) To "Straight talk" with you. No word games- (I have no appetite for mealy-mouthed political speak); and
(5) To Represent You,
.. Now, isn't that a novel idea?
