Letter from Mike

Hello! My name is Mike Higgs and I am running for State Party First Vice Chairman on December 3rd at State Party Convention. I have been Chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Central Committee for 3 years, and was a District Chairman for 2 years before that. I am particularly proud of how great our bi-weekly newsletter looks, and how extraordinarily high our open rate is. Prior to being elected to the Montgomery County Central Committee, I worked on several campaigns, was a poll watcher, and worked for a Republican member of Congress. As the Chairman of TrumpMontgomery and the Mighty Maryland Strike Force, I worked tirelessly to stop Hillary from reaching the White House.

After 18 years of private practice as a telecommunications attorney, I was honored by the Hogan administration to be asked to help turn around the Department of Assessments and Taxation. As the Deputy Director, I oversee the operational aspects of a 600 employee agency. With an emphasis on providing excellent customer service and upgrading the agency’s use of modern technology, I want to bring that experience to bear for the Maryland GOP.

Our County Central Committees are the “customers” of the MDGOP, and I want to provide them with excellent customer service. It is my goal to find out what tools our Central Committees can use in order to be more successful, and provide those. In particular, we have big plans for more robust training opportunities. Montgomery County is renowned for putting on first class, profitable events with national political leaders, and I am excited to do the same for our State Party.

I look forward to sharing more details of our plans for providing effective, conservative leadership to the State Party in the days and weeks to come.  Thank you for your consideration.
