Last Friday was the Maryland filing deadline for candidates for 2024. We weren’t disappointed.

We already had a field of great folks running to make a difference, but on Friday we got a lot more. Former Governor Larry Hogan, former Delegate Neil Parrott, author and activist Bethany Mandel and former Rockville City Council candidate Ricky Mui were among others who all put their hats in the ring for various offices on the last day of filing.

Competition helps our democracy; more choices are what folks want. To get a full list of candidates go HERE. This next week we’ll get more info and make sure you have it.

The White House, the Capitol and our own Board of Education affect our lives in totally different ways.

Our pages are open to Republicans and non-partisans, and many of our readers are moderate Democrats. We want to make this county and this country better. We had great candidates, now we have more. Things are looking up.

We’ll keep you posted.
