We are very pleased that Charles Lollar, 2010 candidate for the US House of Representatives for Congressional District 5, will be one of our presenters in a great line-up of speakers at the MD CAN conference on January 8th. Most of you know that Mr. Lollar gave former House Majority leader, Steny Hoyer, a run for his money (Hoyer used a lot of it to hold on to his seat!) in that 5th District race.
Mr. Lollar continues to be one of Maryland’s leading conservatives and has no plans of going away—he will be a political force to be reckoned with in Maryland for years to come!
As part of a panel of candidates and elected officials, Mr. Lollar will discuss what went right, what went wrong in 2010, and what we need to be doing to organize Maryland in the right direction in future elections.
Charles Lollar is a concerned citizen, hard working taxpayer, business executive, major in the United States Marine Corps Reserves and, most importantly, devoted husband and father of 4 daughters.
