No Maryland elected official has done more to protect informed medical choice than Delegate Cox has during his single term representing District 4 in the Maryland state legislature. Last year on Monday, March 16th, as citizens across Maryland and around the world struggled to make sense of troubling reports describing hospital overflows and draconian lock-downs, Governor Hogan and the Maryland state legislature were poised to exploit that fear and confusion in unison, attempting to grossly overreach their proper governmental authority. Dan Cox stood up, and stood alone, to defend the rights of Maryland citizens. He gave an impassioned speech and walked off the legislative floor in protest of blatant legislative misconduct.
Delegate Cox, a constitutional lawyer in practice for over a decade, was the only state legislator to carefully review House Bill 650 and identify ominous open-ended language that granted unlimited, ever-extended gubernatorial authority which would supersede the rule of law and trample individual rights. It was Dan’s swift and courageous action which inspired two other legislators to stand with him along with Informed Choice Maryland and others across the state in forcefully opposing HB650. Under the brave leadership of Delegates Cox, Parrott, and Hartman, HB650 was defeated. Dan demonstrated the composure, intelligence, foresight, and strength of character so desperately needed and unfortunately absent under our current gubernatorial leadership.
Dan has since led the effort to reopen our state and restore our constitutional rights, standing alone among his peers in endorsing sound, science-based policies. He introduced bills to end the unfounded and injurious extended state of emergency, block vaccine passports, and protect the rights and fundamental well-being of children. He defended a citizen wrongfully denied the right to vote and challenged Governor Hogan’s lock-down in court. And he was first in the state of Maryland to publicly oppose the University of Maryland’s unlawful attempt to mandate experimental and yet-unapproved Covid-19 vaccines for students and faculty.
Dan Cox has demonstrated his unwavering commitment to informed medical choice and personal and parental rights throughout his tenure as a state delegate, despite tremendous criticism in the press and among his colleagues in the legislature. Delegate Cox will continue to stand up for our rights, lives, and livelihoods, and the lives of our children, in the office of the Governor – and he needs our help to get there.
Please help us send Dan to the Governor’s House in Annapolis, where he will stand with the few courageous Governors across the country fighting hard to protect our rights and defend our freedom.
