The Julie and Bill Dotson Center for Breast Health at the UM Charles Regional Medical Pavilion in La Plata. A specialty clinic focused on breast health, the Dotson Center for Breast Health will be the first of its kind in Charles County.

Bill has been a resident of Maryland all his life and a Charles County resident for more than 30 years. He is happily married to his wife Julie. Together, they have eight children. All of their children reside in Charles County. They live in Port Tobacco where they enjoy the water and rural landscape.

Bill opened his first business in Charles County in 1983. Over the last 34 years, he has owned multiple businesses in Charles County. One of those businesses was Olympus Gym, which had locations in Charles, St. Mary’s and Calvert Counties. In 1985, Bill went to work for the family business. At that time, Modern Door employed seven people and operated in a small 300 square-foot building in the back of the family’s home.

In 1998, Bill purchased the business from his parents. Today, Modern Door is the largest space division distributor in North America employing more than 100 employees and operating in several states. Bill considers his employees as family. The average employee who works at Modern Door has been there for more than 17 years. Several have been there more than 25 years and a few, more than 30 years!!

Modern Door has worked on some of the largest and high profile projects on the East Coast, including The World Trade Center in Manhattan and almost every major hotel in the Washington, D.C. area such as the new MGM hotel.

Bill has a passion to make Charles County and Maryland the best place to live. He and his wife Julie contribute to many great organizations locally and abroad to accomplish this. Some of the local organizations would include Lifestyles, Living Water and Christmas in April. Modern Door has supported more than 100 local sporting teams over the last 33 years. Bill and Julie also feel the need to help globally. They have a passion for wells in Africa to provide clean water where it is so desperately needed.

Bill and Julie attend New Life Church in La Plata, Maryland. They are devoted members of their church and their church community and contribute through the ministry of New Life to many worthy organizations.

Frustrated with Maryland politics and the damage local and state governments are doing to hurt businesses in Maryland, Bill decided to take an active role. He campaigned for Governor Hogan in 2014 and for Kathy Szeliga in 2016. Realizing that sometimes you must vote character over party, Bill has also supported Democrats like Comptroller Peter Franchot.

In 2016, Bill joined the Republican Central Committee. Later that year, seeing his leadership skills, the committee elected him chairman. He is also on the MD GOP Executive Committee.

In late 2016, several people from the local community asked Bill to get involved with a county downzoning amendment called The Watershed Conservation District (WCD). This amendment basically disenfranchised and devalued the land of more than 7,500 landowners in the western part of the county. Bill had no personal properties in the affected area but was disturbed by what was being done to his fellow citizens. Bill went into action and began having community and outreach meetings. Partnering with Jason Henry, they formed Charles County Citizens Rights — a bipartisan organization to stop the government from abusing the rights of its citizens. The fight against the WCD included dozens of meetings and organized citizen protests. Working with and bringing together organizations from every political spectrum, Bill and Jason formed a bipartisan opposition that included Democrats, Republicans, NAACP, Chamber of Commerce and many others.

By reaching out to all people of all political persuasions, Bill has learned that people in Charles County and Maryland all want the best for our State and our local communities. Being a successful business leader, Bill feels he is uniquely qualified to bring tried, tested and true business acumen to the State House in Annapolis. For way too long, legislation has passed that effectively tells business owners that Maryland is CLOSED FOR BUSINESS. Bill will fight this bad legislation and promote laws that help businesses get off the ground, grow and thrive.

Bill knows that Governor Hogan is an advocate for attracting new businesses to Maryland. Bill wants to work with Governor Hogan to get the Governor’s agenda through the Democratically-controlled legislature.

Bill is a Constitutional conservative with a social conscience. He believes in limited efficient government. He believes that government must provide a safety net for those in need.

Bill’s campaign motto is TRUTH, TRUST, AND TRANSPARENCY.  That’s what Marylanders should expect and demand from their elected leaders. If you trust Bill with your vote, he promises to provide leadership that will make you proud.
