I'm proud to have earned endorsements from the following organizations: Montgomery County NOW PAC, Jews United for Justice Campaign Fund, Greater Greater Washington, and the Association of Black Democrats of Montgomery County. I also have a 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland PAC and received the highest rating from the Action Committee for Transit (ACT).
Why I'm Running:
Our federal government is dysfunctional. Now, more than ever, we have to rely on our local government to invest in our priorities, ensure equal opportunity, and get things done. That’s why I’m running.
After a career in law, policy, and activism, I believe I can make the most difference now by serving on the front lines of local government.
I have broad range of experience. I’ve worked at all levels of government – at the IRS as a tax lawyer, in Annapolis as a legislative aide, and as Chief of Staff at the County Council. I’ve spent a good portion of my career working with nonprofits and advocating for women and families. As Chair of the Board of our local Planned Parenthood, President of the Montgomery County Commission for Women, Senior Counsel at the National Women’s Law Center, and Co-Chair of the legislative task force of a 1,400-member coalition whose shared missions are to protect vulnerable populations, I’ve collaborated with diverse stakeholders to reach consensus and find solutions. That’s the type of leadership I’ll bring to the County Council.
