Ready on Day One
Why I’m Running
I’m running for Governor because Maryland is facing tremendous challenges right now, and we don’t have a moment to waste.
I’ve spent my career serving Marylanders with progressive values and bold action. My record on the big issues that affect our lives: preserving the environment, safeguarding equal rights for all, and delivering justice for Maryland families, shows I’ve got the experience to get the job done.
These are challenging times, make no mistake.
But we have an incredible opportunity to shape a better, more just future for our state.
That work is going to take an experienced leader who can hit the ground running and guide our state’s recovery in a way that improves the lives of every Marylander.
I’ve always tackled the biggest problems facing our state, no matter how powerful the opposition. And I’m ready to fight to take bold action to build the Maryland we all deserve.
