Maryland was established on the principles of equality, religious freedom, separation of church and state, and creating opportunities for all to achieve economic self-sufficiency. No place is this more clear than at Historic
We should consider our common civic identity as Marylanders more strongly than our individual, and at many times, fractious, identities: Catholic, gay, black, atheist, immigrant, and so on. Our historic heritage as Marylanders informs and unites us all. It is a heritage that transcends demographic divisions and self-interest. It would be in the best Maryland tradition to vote for Questions 4 and 6. Maryland is a state of firsts, a state built on strong principles, and a state unafraid to blaze new paths in pursuit of these ideals. Let's continue the great legacy of our state's progress together.
