"Ray Fava is a discerning mind and quick learner. He is unquestionably a devout Christian conservative who will uphold the rights and liberties protected by the Constitution without exception. As a husband and father of two daughters, he not only runs on conservative values, he lives them. With an educational background in accounting and entrepreneurship, Ray Fava is the most qualified to handle Carroll County's budget." Dan Cox
On Saturday, June 25th prior to receiving a phone call from President Trump at his rally, Ray Fava joined Dan Cox on stage to announce his endorsement in front of a crowd of around five hundred people. The Fava campaign welcomes this endorsement and is happy to see a conservative candidate for governor fostering the conservative movement on a local level. Ray Fava is also happy to support Dan Cox in the Maryland gubernatorial primary as well.
This endorsement comes after Ray Fava has been endorsed by the Tri-District Republican Club, the South Carroll Republican Club, and the Carroll Taxpayers Coalition. Ray Fava is running for county commissioner in District 1 of Carroll County which consists of the northwest area. The primary election is on July 19th.
As a result of the 2020 census, Carroll County will undergo a redistricting of its commissioner districts. This redistricting will be rather dramatic. All six of the proposed maps have New Windsor and Union Bridge in District 1 and no longer in District 4. Although the Board of Elections has my campaign listed as for District 4, it is reasonable to anticipate that I will be redrawn into District 1, so I want to announce to District 1 my candidacy for your consideration.
I am a Christian conservative who is pro-life and pro-constitution. I am running to defeat mandates and vaccine passports and ensure that 2020 lockdowns never again happen in Carroll County. I am running to end Carroll County’s current quasi-charter government in which an unelected bureaucrat runs the county government. This power must be restored to the people. I am running to protect rural communities from overdevelopment, and to ensure that your dollars do not undermine your values in supporting dangerous ideologies like Critical Race Theory.
Being an open seat, the people of District 1 have a prime opportunity to elect a genuine conservative commissioner. I believe that through based conservative leadership Carroll County can be a bastion of freedom in Maryland.
Recently, Commissioner Ed Rothstein made comments that attempted to placate those suffering from Mass Formation Psychosis following Carroll County’s decision not to implement a mask mandate. Rothstein argues that if there was a state of emergency, then Carroll County would have the grounds to implement a mask mandate.
He then defended the discrimination against unvaccinated Carroll County employees through the imposition of a mask mandate upon them. Rothstein believes that masking unvaccinated county workers is leadership. That is not leadership; that is retaliation! The commissioners have collectively chosen to punish those who independently exercised their right to bodily autonomy.
It’s 2022 and Ed Rothstein still believes that masking prevents the spread of viruses. We all know someone who got vaccinated that later contracted Covid, including the most recent Omicron variant. These vaccines neither provide protection against nor reduce the transmission of this virus. Ed Rothstein perpetuates these falsehoods. He does not stand for truth. He does not stand for freedom.
With Republicans like Ed Rothstein, who needs Democrats? I encourage the people of District 5 to hold Mr. Rothstein accountable at the ballot box.
I intend to oppose all mask and vaccination mandates as County Commissioner. Furthermore, I will stand up for the fired unvaccinated healthcare workers whose wrongful termination has placed an undue burden on our healthcare system.
