**A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR**
Early voting begins TOMORROW and we need everybody to show up at the polls and VOTE for the Democrats in this VERY important election. At this pivotal juncture in our nation’s history, it is important for us to exam who we truly are and what we stand for.
Democrats believe that we’re greater together than we are on our own. Democrats believe that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, everyone gets a seat at the table, and everyone plays by the same rules. Our party has led the longstanding fight for civil rights, health care, Social Security, workers’ rights, and women’s rights.
*SUPPORT BEN JEALOUS Democratic nominee FOR GOVERNOR
This year’s state-wide races are incredibly important. Over the next 13 days, we will have the opportunity to VOTE for a Governor to represent all Marylanders in this State. Ben Jealous, is running to ensure that NO MARYLANDER is left behind. Ben is supported and endorsed by our teachers, nurses, and so many hard working folks in this great state. Ben has a record of working hard to bring progress to our State. Here in Maryland, Ben was an indispensable part of repealing the death penalty, passing the Maryland Dream Act, ensuring civil marriage equality, and expanding access to voting.
Ben has an economic agenda which focuses on raising wages, tackling chronic unemployment and underemployment, expanding rural broadband, supporting small businesses and better leveraging the state’s biotech and life sciences resources. The plan also calls for the creation of a new Governor’s Office of Tech Transfer, which would support small businesses and startups in the tech industry. Ben Jealous is the only candidate with comprehensive plans on police reform, criminal justice reform, the opioid crisis, Medicare-for-All, seniors, higher education, K-12 education, Expanding Rural Broadbandand, and an economic plan for investing in Maryland’s cities.
Larry Hogan is saying one thing on the campaign trail after doing the exact opposite in Annapolis. Hogan fought against many of the initiatives proposed by Democrats in the general assembly that he’s trying to take credit for now. Hogan vetoed earned sick leave for 700,000 Maryland workers, opposed the education lockbox, and opposed increases to the minimum wage. Larry Hogan has been an anti-worker, anti-public education, anti-union governor, and his election year dishonesty won’t change that.
