DiPaula, Transportation Secretary Flanagan, and Asst. Secretary of the U.S.

involvement in the party, the past Legislative Session, and our accomplishments
and goals here in Maryland.
In addition to having the opportunity to hear words from our distinguished
speakers, the MYR’s elected a new Executive Board that includes 4 of our very

Other BAYR Club News
We can definitely say that 2003 has gotten off to an exciting start, with the inauguration of
our first Republican Governor and Lt. Governor in 3 decades, followed by a controversial
and heated Legislative Session in Annapolis. The BAYR’s even got in on some political
action at our April Brew Ha Ha event, when Michael Steele made his first visit with us as
Lt. Governor of Maryland, and was met by an obnoxious group of protestors who were
unhappy with impending budget cuts to their program. Fortunately, Lt. Governor Steele
rescheduled his meeting with us later in the spring and filled us in on the 2003 Legislative
Session as well as some long-term goals of the Maryland Republic
