Glass and Moon campaign events: 2 for the price of 2!
I support David Moon for Maryland House of Delegates, District 20, and Evan Glass for Montgomery County Council, District 5, in the June 2014 Democratic primaries. I hope you’ll also support each, and attend their up-coming, early-January fundraisers: January 5 for Evan and January 7 for David.
(Evan’s and David’s campaigns aren’t connected and they haven’t endorsed each other. I’m hitting you up with just a single message only because their events are within 2 days of each other.)
Evan Glass’s fundraiser will take place in Takoma Park, 5pm – 7pm on Sunday, January 5. Please visit http://www.evanglass.com/takoma_park_fundraiser to purchase tickets.
I have characterized Evan as the next-generation leader that we in Montgomery County need, to build consensus around an agenda that advances education, environmentalism, affordable housing, transportation, jobs, and growth. I probably first got to know him as chair of the county’s Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board. I’ve also had working exchanges with him in his capacity as a board member of Conservation Montgomery and of the Montgomery Housing Partnership. Evan is the best candidate to replace Valerie Ervin, to represent District 5 on the larger stage, in Rockville.
There will be a “Dinner Party with Friends of David Moon” on Tuesday, January 7, 6pm – 8pm at Addis Ababa Restaurant in Silver Spring. Visit http://davidmoon.us/deadline/ to respond and contribute.
David knows his way around Maryland campaigns and politics and the issues, of course with the progressive take that we expect from all the local Democratic primary candidates. He’s a strong strategist and a great communicator. The issue I’ve talked to David about most is justice policy and drug-law reform; there is no question in my mind that David can *both* relate to constituents’ (and the whole of our state’s) varied needs and craft team approaches to meeting them.
Please join me at David Moon’s and at Evan Glass’s fundraisers, and in my support for their campaigns.
Thanks very much,
P.S. Feel free to forward this message, which, by the way, wasn’t endorsed or paid for by anyone other than me.
