As a former candidate for local office I know how hard and annoying raising money is. I also understand how publicity is hard to come by so every once in a while I will post information about any local candidate who contacts me or who I stumble upon.
On Thursday morning in Charles Village I bumped into Mary Washington who is running for delegate in the 43rd district. She handed me a very nice invite to her upcoming fundraiser on March 29th at 6:30PM at Tam Tam West African restaurant.
Art Buist is running for delegate in the 42nd district. Here is a flyer for his fundraiser which takes place on April 6th at the Stoneleigh Bakery Cafe at 7:00PM.
Adam Bradford Van Bavel is running for City Council in the 10th district in 2011. Some non-political people informed me of this; that means he getting the word out. His site does not say to what party he belongs. He is the third person I know who has already announced he is running for city council in 2011. The 2010 census will reshape the districts before the 2011 election so I hope none of the people who have announced get placed in another district.
