Open Letter to the Concerned Voters of District 7

Open Letter to the Voters of Maryland District 7

To Concerned Voters;

Lauren Arikan, candidate for House of Delegates - District 7, has received large campaign contributions by certain Pro-Palestinian Anti-Trump Activists and Special Interest Groups that may have an agenda to influence our government. As voters, you have the right to be aware of the background and potential impact of these contributions.

The Pro-Democrat, Left Leaning, Liberal Turkish Coalition Northeast PAC (www.tcnortheastpac.org and their “10,000 Turks Campaign”) has contributed a large amount of money to Ms. Arikan’s campaign. She also recently received a $5,000 donation from Mustafa Tuncer, an out-of-state business owner and the President and Co-Founder of MUSIAD USA, a Pro-Turkish, and Pro-Palestinian Muslim Businessmen’s Association.

In addition to Tuncer’s affiliation with MUSIAD, he is also a supporter and candidate of Turkey’s AK Party (AKP). AKP has been criticized for maintaining informal relations with the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization recognized as a terrorist organization by six countries. In fact, our former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, referred to the Muslim Brotherhood as “An agent of radical Islam”, along with Al-Qaeda. Tuncer openly opposes President Donald Trump’s and Israel’s Middle-East policies and the recent declaration by President Trump that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. Mustafa Tuncer, along with other members of his MUSIAD USA were interviewed by the F.B.I. in 2016 for suspicion of spying on behalf of the Turkish government, while in the United States.

It’s alarming to think that certain extremist groups and Special Interests Groups may possess an agenda to influence our government. Do the voters want a candidate accepting contributions from these two entities? It should be noted that District 7 Candidate David Seman has defended Arikan taking large contributions from the Turkish Coalition of America.

I urge the voters of Harford and Baltimore Counties to understand that certain candidates could one day put them and their conservative values at risk. These facts and more can be found on my website with links to the articles and news stories where they have come from. I hope you take the time to make an educated decision for your choice for Delegate this Primary Election.

As I have said many times, I am not afraid to stand up for what I believe in. Rather than silently watching while Lauren Arikan fails to represent the values of our community, I have chosen to speak up. My campaign has been clear from the beginning. I am not a politician looking for a career. I am fighting to make District 7 and Maryland Safer, Stronger, and Better. Let’s keep Maryland safe, and America strong.

Sincerely,
Aaron Penman
Candidate for Maryland’s House of Delegates, District 7

  • "The Turkish Coalition of America says "The Turkish Caucus is a bipartisan platform for members of Congress to focus on U.S.-Turkey relations and issues that concern Turkish Americans." But Turkey's former ambassador Namik Tan and the government he once represented look at the numbers of congressmen signing on to be an endorsement of Turkish state and society."

    "What is that state and society today? Turkey may once have been an ally and a partner, but today it has become in-all-but-name a state sponsor of terrorism, a dictatorship, a liability to NATO, and a source of instability in the Middle East."

  • A decade ago, Turks saw themselves in a camp with the United States, Western Europe, and Israel; today Turkish self-identity places the country firmly in a camp led by Iran, Syria, Sudan, and Hamas. Turkey may be a NATO member, but polls nevertheless show it to be the world's most anti-American country (although, to be fair, the Pew Global Attitudes Project did not conduct surveys in Libya or North Korea).

Honoring Amy Caprio

Amy Caprio, Baltimore City Police Officer, End of Watch, May 21, 2018

My heart is heavy for the family, friends, and fellow officers of Officer Amy Caprio—a Fallen Hero.

Officer Caprio was a dedicated member of the Baltimore County Police Department about to celebrate four years of service. She bravely made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and security of our citizens.

We all owe her a debt of gratitude for her selfless-service.

We will continue to keep Officer Caprio’s family, loved ones, her brothers and sisters in blue, and the entire Baltimore County community in our prayers. 

I congratulate the Baltimore County Police Department, and all of the allied agencies involved, for the swift apprehension of the four suspects—their excellent police work is truly the best way to honor her memory. I stand united with the BCPD as they begin the healing process.
