Calvert County Democratic Committee Condemns Obscene Billboard in Huntingtown, Calls for Immediate Removal

May 5, 2021

On Monday, Calvert County Democratic Central Committee Chair Jeanette Flaim condemned the latest billboard erected at the intersection of MD 4 and Bowie Shop Road in Huntingtown of Calvert County, MD.

“The obscene imagery and language displayed on this latest sign is deeply disturbing” said Flaim. The billboard displays caricature-like images of President Biden and Vice President Harris on feces and includes expletives in its caption.

Flaim continued, “This does not reflect the values of our County, regardless of party. Our county is home to a myriad of families who must drive by this on their way from school or work. Our county welcomes visitors from far and wide. Parents should not have to explain something so vile to their small children. And it certainly shouldn’t be what our visitors remember us for.”

In January of 2018, the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners voted to allow signs with graphic language and imagery in certain town centers, including Huntingtown.

“I’m not sure this is what those Commissioners had in mind when they took that vote.” Flaim said. “It’s clear that this has gone too far. I encourage our current Commissioners to act swiftly to remedy this blight on our community. And the Calvert County Democratic Party calls on our friends with the Calvert GOP to join us in unequivocally condemning this sign and demanding its immediate removal.”
