Today, we are excited to release a 2 1/2 minute video that highlights some of the themes of our campaign to Build a Better Baltimore, and discusses why I am running for State Delegate. I am so grateful to the many friends and supporters who helped pull together this video - along with those who offered to share why they are voting for me on Election Day! Please share this video with your friends around District 46, and invite them to join our campaign and vote on Election Day!
My latest mail piece – which should be hitting your door soon if you are a registered Democrat in District 46 – highlights my belief that in order for Baltimore to grow and thrive, we must focus on strengthening our neighborhoods. To learn more about my ideas for building a better Baltimore, click on the Issues tab. Take a look at the mail piece below and let me know what you think!
Because strong schools build strong neighborhoods, it is vital that Baltimore City Public Schools have the funding they need to thrive. As a parent who plans to send my son to a Baltimore City public school, I also have a personal stake in ensuring that our schools are worthy of our children. This week's mail piece highlights my plan to invest in our schools, ensuring that students, parents, and educators all have the supporters they need.
I hope I can earn your support in the primary election on June 24, and between now and then I hope you will join me in spreading our campaign message of building a better Baltimore!
With less than a month to go until Primary Day on June 24, I am happy to announce that today my campaign filed our latest finance report, and that the campaign remains on solid financial footing. During this reporting period (covering January 9 through May 21) we raised over $37,000, and have over $47,000 remaining in the bank to help propel us towards Election Day.
Political reporter Josh Kurtz visited Baltimore one Saturday in early May, and reported on Brooke and her campaign. Kurtz writes that it's Brooke's "warm personality and an Energizer Bunny spirit that is fueling her Happy Warrior campaign (these she inherited from her dad), as she goes from neighborhood to neighborhood, often by bike, and frequently with her young son Teddy in tow."

This week's mail piece highlights the work I have done representing community groups that are working to make their neighborhoods safer for all residents and businesses. This piece discusses the work I did on behalf of the Highlandtown Community Association in December 2012, when we secured the revocation of a liquor license at a dangerous bar on Eastern Avenue. I am excited to be an ally at the state level to community associations around District 46 that are working to building safe and thriving neighborhoods.
I am excited to report that this week our campaign is sending out its first direct-mail piece to targeted registered Democrats in District 46. Although I've knocked on over 10,000 doors, there are so many people that we have not yet been able to reach. This first piece is our "Bio" piece -- it is intended to tell voters who I am. Our mail plan will also highlight some of my priorities should I be elected one of the State Delegates for District 46. We'll be posting all our mail pieces on this blog, so feel free to check back regularly to see them all!
Earlier this week the Maryland General Assembly adjourned in Annapolis, and in Baltimore we have much to celebrate! With the help of our District 46 Delegation—State Senator Bill Ferguson and Delegates Pete Hammen, Luke Clippinger, and Brian McHale—as well as other dedicated public servants from Baltimore City, a number of bills that will lift up Baltimore communities and businesses are on their way to becoming law.
On Saturday, March 15, Brooke hosted a grand opening party for her new campaign office in Fell’s Point. Brooke was joined by Congressman Elijah E. Cummings and Congressman John P. Sarbanes (both D-Md), along with Brooke’s supporters and community members.
We’re less than four months from Election Day. My campaign has been focused on knocking on doors, attending community meetings and house parties, and listening to the concerns of voters throughout District 46, but I’ve also been keeping a close eye on the important debates going on in the General Assembly in Annapolis this session. There are several bills moving through the General Assembly that I think are particularly important to our District that I am tracking and supporting.
