Letter from Chris
Greetings! My name is Chris Rosenthal and I am running for re-election as State Party Treasurer on December 3rd at the State Party Convention in Frederick. I have had the privilege of working with many of you over the past several years as your Treasurer and in my role as Treasurer of Governor Hogan and Lt. Governor Rutherford’s re-election campaign.
What a great time to be a Republican in Maryland! Here in Maryland, our Trump Team and many tireless volunteers for all of our Republican candidates helped re-elect Congressman Andy Harris and set the stage for future victories at the Federal, State, and Local levels. We must build on these gains in 2018 – that is why I want to continue to be your State Party Treasurer!
Our number one goal in 2018 is to re-elect Governor Hogan and Lt. Governor Rutherford and elect enough Republicans in the General Assembly to uphold Governor Hogan’s vetoes, allowing us to control redistricting and finally create General Assembly and Congressional districts that are respectful of the State’s geography and reflective of its citizens’ political views. Once we accomplish that we can then turn our focus on our long term goals of achieving parity in the State legislature and winning Republican majorities in many more of our county and local governing bodies.
The State Party Treasurer plays an important role in our Party. In addition to overseeing our accounting and financial reporting, the Treasurer is the Officer legally responsible for filing reports with the FEC and SBE. We have developed excellent relationships and are in frequent contact with FEC and SBE officials. The Treasurer prepares our budgets and coordinates efforts with the Governor’s campaign and our House and Senate Caucus committees. The Treasurer is responsible for reporting our results to our Executive and Central committee members on a quarterly basis and working with the rest of our leadership team on the management of the Party’s day to day operations. I have also been very active in working with our fundraising team and have helped raise significant funds which allows the State Party to fulfill our number one goal of electing more Republicans.

I grew up in Salisbury Maryland and volunteered for Ronald Reagan’s campaign while in college (Virginia Tech). Moved to Baltimore City in 1987 – volunteered for many campaigns, including campaigns for Bentley, Sauerbrey, Ehrlich, George W. Bush, and Mitt Romney and Larry Hogan.
Home for me is Edgewater on the South River. Many of you know my wife, Kelly, who is an executive with Gilbane Building Company. We have two children, Will (8) and Morgan (6). In addition to the Republican Party, the Ravens/Eagles as well as soccer and boating are high on our list of family activities.
