|Dear Friends, Family and Neighbors,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the more than 120 friends, familyÂ and supporters who came out to join me for my Campaign Kickoff this past Sunday March 21st. I want to especially thank those who spoke at the event as well as all of the Event Hosts (please see the list below). Your presence and encouragement meant a great deal to me, and I felt extremely honored and grateful to haveÂ you there with me, as I officially declared by candidacy to represent District 19 in the Maryland House of Delegates.
I also want to thank all of those who sent me messages of support and donations, even though you couldnât attend. Attached is a copy of the post event press release and pictures for your perusal.
I look forward to your continued support and hope to see you at our BUSINESS AND NETWORKING SOCIAL EVENT scheduled for Saturday April 24th @ 7-9pm in Fairfax, VA. Save The Date!
