- Do you know that 1/3rd of current delegates and senators in the Maryland General Assembly first got their seats through appointment and not election? Being an “incumbent” through an appointment gives you a leg up when you run at the next election. We need special elections to fill vacancies, not appointments.
- Do you know that the Maryland Democratic Party has no platform?
- Do you know that the PGDCC does not routinely put up agenda or minutes for its meetings on its website?
- Why does Prince George’s not have a precinct structure?
- Why are our central committee members carried on sample ballots of sitting senators?
The Democratic Party must be transparent and accountable and that must start at home. We circulated a pledge to all 57 candidates running for the Prince Georges Democratic Central Committee. Read the pledge, see who signed and who did not respond. VOTE!
