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.
Today, Brooke filed paperwork with the Maryland State Board of Elections to declare her intentions to run for State Delegate representing the 46th District. “I'm running for State Delegate because I want to make sure that Baltimore families and communities have a strong voice representing them in the State Legislature.” Brooke said. “Whether it’s full funding for schools, investment in our neighborhoods, fair wages, a clean harbor, or better public transit, I’ll fight for the support from the State that Baltimore families and communities need.”
Today the Maryland League of Conservation Voters endorsed Brooke for 46th District delegate. “The Maryland League of Conservation Voters is enthusiastically endorsing Brooke Lierman for delegate in district 46 in Baltimore City,” said Karla Raettig, Executive Director of Maryland LCV. “She will be a strong voice for not only her local community but for Maryland's environment and we are very excited to work with her when she is in the General Assembly.”
The Baltimore Guide recently published an article about a campaign rally held by the 46th District Democratic ticket, introducing and endorsing Brooke as a member of the slate. U.S. Representative John Sarbanes was quoted as saying, “Having now Brooke Lierman step up to be part of this team makes a lot of sense. She’s someone who has really dedicated herself to the neighborhoods and communities of the 46th District.”
Brooke filed her first fundraising report with the Maryland State Board of Elections on Janury 14, reporting $124,017.12 in donations and $11,072.05 in in-kind gifts, with more than 550 donors making contributions.
Brooke today announced that she is joining the Democratic ticket for the 46th District with incumbent State Senator Bill Ferguson and State Delegates Pete Hammen and Luke Clippinger.
Today Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) led a group of Baltimore leaders, including State Senator Perry Sfikas (D-Md. 46th ret.), Delegate Carolyn Krysiak (D-Md. 46th ret.), and Councilman Edward L. Reisinger (D-Baltimore City 6th), in endorsing Brooke in the race for 46th District delegate.
