Flowers for Maryland
Candidate for US Congress, Maryland's 3rd District.
I’m Berney Flowers, proudly calling Howard County my home for fifteen years. I’ve dedicated myself to balancing my roles as a senior civil servant and a committed community leader.
A bit about me: I grew up in a working-class family, breaking the mold to become a college graduate and later earning a Master’s in Public Administration. I proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for nearly 21 years, including during the 9/11 Pentagon attack, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. My service continued in various roles under both Republican and Democrat administrations. Beyond work, I’m passionate about mentoring first-generation college men, and cherishing moments with my family.
Why I’m Running
As a military officer and dedicated civil servant, I’ve upheld a long-standing tradition of political neutrality, but I can no longer remain silent in good conscience. Our country is headed in the wrong direction, with cities in disrepair, economic volatility, and uncertainty for hardworking Marylander’s left behind. District 3 has been under the representation of an incumbent who doesn’t reside in it, neglecting pressing issues like crumbling infrastructure, fiscal accountability, and an unfair tax system. As your next congressman, I intend to be the voice for those who feel politically adrift, advocating for efficient government and business-oriented solutions. It’s time to bring about positive change for our community, and to lay out a new vision for Maryland’s third congressional district.
People Before Politics:
Prioritize people over party, address the economy, amplify voices, tackle immigration, term limits, and fiscal responsibility.
I will always keep People before Politics. I will fight for Term Limits, Fiscal Responsibility and Collaboration for a better future!
Empowerment Through Education:
Depoliticize public schools, empower parents, teachers, and local communities.
I recognize the transformative power of education in shaping the future of our nation. I am committed to supporting parental rights, delivering access to Charter School Vouchers, and expanding Technical Education opportunities while focusing on School Safety.
Prioritizing America’s Security:
End endless wars, and focus on domestic security.
In an ever-changing world, a strong and secure America is paramount. As a veteran and retired Civil Servant, I am dedicated to bolstering our national security. With a constitutional focus on securing our borders, I promise to uphold the principles that make America the land of the free and stop the criminal influence that is overwhelming our neighborhoods.
Encourage home ownership, protect against predatory lending, support small businesses, diversify credit-building methods, and promote domestic manufacturing.
Economic prosperity is a key to America’s future! By eliminating Government Waste, Lowering Taxes, and Promoting US Manufacturing, Small Businesses, and Employment, I will create an economic landscape that benefits all Americans! I will also lead the fight against the growing predatory-style lending that is on the rise as struggling Americans fight Joe Biden’s steep inflation. Together, we can build a nation where everyone has the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.
Enhance Family-Focused Policies:
Increase childcare tax credits, invest in school repairs, and foster innovation hubs connecting educational institutions with federal R&D.
At the heart of my campaign is a commitment to policies that strengthen American families. I understand the importance of creating an environment where every family can thrive and respecting family values. I will fight for increased Childcare Tax Credits.
We´re up against a well-funded democrat-party machine that will stop at nothing to remain in power and keep a stronghold in this country. Your support is key in making a stance against this machine that has been instrumental in the deterioration of the fundamental values this country was built upon.
Please consider donating to ensure that we don’t continue to go down the path of social decay, economic stagnation, and government overreach.
