Welcome to the official website of John A. Myrick, a Republican running for the United States Senate to represent all Marylanders. With extensive experience and a passion for public service, John aims to bring positive change and make a difference in the lives of the people of Maryland. Join the campaign and help shape a better future for our great state.
Our Nation is facing serious issues, and we need representatives that will work together to solve them. I will work with anyone to provide solutions - regardless of political party or affiliation - because that is the only way things get fixed. I'm not a politician, I'm a public servant. For far too long, career politicians have been more interested in protecting their own positions and blaming each other for the way things are. Our country deserves better - you deserve better.
Marylanders have voted for career politicians for decades. Tell me, how’s that working out for us? Have they solved anything? Has your life improved? If the answer to these questions is no, then perhaps it’s time we did something different. It’s time for a change. I firmly believe that I am the agent of that change.
John A. Myrick is a dedicated leader with a proven track record of advocating for the interests and needs of Marylanders. With a deep understanding of the challenges facing our state, John is committed to finding innovative solutions and fighting for positive change. As a candidate for the United States Senate, John is focused on representing the voices of Marylanders and working towards a brighter future for all.
Our Nation is facing several major issues that negatively impact Marylanders every day. These problems need real solutions and are not going to be solved through partisan politics. As your U.S. Senator, I would work with any and all like-minded people - regardless of political party or affiliation - focusing on these major issues:
Countries are defined by their borders. Our southern border crisis continues to test this definition. The lack of effective border control has allowed illegal drugs like fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine to flow freely into our cities. Maryland now has the third highest rate of fentanyl overdoses in the entire country. Additionally, the flood of undocumented people from all over the world flowing across the southern border has caused a major humanitarian crisis in many major cities throughout the country and poses a grave risk to our national security.
I will work to secure our borders, to enforce immigration and customs laws, and to hold those responsible for flooding our streets with illegal drugs accountable.
Our country is far less safe than at any point in modern history - facing threats from terrorists, rouge states, and near-peer adversaries like China and Russia. Our military is no longer in a position to defend our global interests as it has for the past century. We cannot afford to continue to allow declining recruitment, social experimentation, ineffective leadership, and defense contractors who are more interested in their bottom lines than they are in defending our country, to impact our military readiness.
I will work to improve the quality of life issues plaguing our military that affect our ability to recruit qualified volunteers. I will seek to hold the leadership of the Department of Defense accountable for every dime of YOUR tax money that is spent and seek to improve the way in which we procure and purchase weapon systems.
The Founding Fathers never envisioned service in Congress as a career. They understood that representatives needed to be rotated from time to time in order to bring fresh perspectives and ideas to deal with the Nation's business. Far too many of our Congresspeople and Senators have spent decades in office. Has this longevity solved any of the issues effecting the average American? I think not.
I will only serve one (1) term in the U.S. Senate. I would also like to work with the Maryland Governor and leaders in the State House to promote your priorities - not those of a particular political party or special interest. I will introduce legislation for term limits for Congress - limiting total service in either or both chambers to 12 years total. I will work with other like-minded Members to hold Members accountable for their conduct.
Prices of everything from food, to housing, to fuel have skyrocketed over the past several years. Congress' so-called solutions to this have only made things for the average American worse. I see it every time I go to the grocery store or gas station. More and more Marylanders are having difficulty paying for basic needs.
I would work to restore America's energy independence. I believe that this can be done while still protecting the environment. I would also seek to repeal any legislation that further damages the economy and makes things for us more expensive. I will serve as a advocate for Maryland products and services to be included in any proposed economic legislation.
