About Us

“Keep Calvert Country” is a non-partisan group of Calvert County citizens who believe in an open government by the people and for the people. We love Calvert’s Rural Character and want to protect Calvert’s Quality of Life.

We are not anti-growth, but we want Calvert to grow no faster than its infrastructure. In other words, to "Grow Responsibly". 

Our Platform

Keep Calvert Country developed a Platform which lists the issues that are important to us, and then included details of how we believe those issues should be addressed. We use our Platform as a basis for all we do.
