Maryland Democratic candidate for Comptroller Brooke Lierman and Rep. Anthony Brown, the Democratic nominee for Attorney General are making their way down the campaign trail ahead of the midterm election on Nov. 8.
Lierman is taking part in the Build a Better Maryland statewide tour, initiated on Sep. 16.
The tour began in Laurel, Md. and recently stopped in Bowie, Md., where Lierman participated in a roundtable discussion to connect with Marylander residents and share her goals if elected as Comptroller of Maryland.
“Today we kicked off our Build a Better Maryland statewide tour! Our first stop was a roundtable with municipal leaders along the Route 1 corridor,” said Lierman in an Instagram post. “This was a critical conversation about how to best ensure a strong state and local partnership to make sure government is working for the people of Maryland.”
On Sep. 20 Lierman also spoke to growing business owners in Prince George’s County, Md. She is scheduled to attend a roundtable discussion on Sep. 29 on efficient and effective tax administration in Annapolis, Md.
“Our campaign will be holding more roundtables across the state over the next 40 days to hear directly from Marylanders about the challenges and opportunities they face and how the Comptroller’s office can best serve their needs,” said Lierman.
Brown has attended a host of events alongside Lierman and gubernatorial candidate, Wes Moore. He attended the Maryland Democratic Party BBQ event, where together they “pushed a forward-looking, inclusive vision for what Maryland can be.”
Brown’s endorsements include the American Federation of Government Employees, CASA In Action, Maryland League of Conservation Voters and Pro-Choice Maryland.
On social media, Brown continues to share his support for issues affecting Marylanders like the Crown Act, the Inflation Reduction Act and less restricting Laws on Abortion.
Brown’s vision for Maryland includes ensuring voting rights across Maryland through policies that encourage voter participation, dedicating attorney general resources to eliminate “ghost guns,” and defending the rights of Black residents through the justice system according to his campaign site.
