Public financing of campaigns through a small-dollar matching program is one of the best tools for improving elections. Progressive Maryland is working hard with Common Cause Maryland and other allies through Fair Elections Maryland to push Montgomery County Council to pass a model bill, one of the strongest laws in the country. Click now to email Montgomery County Council members urging them to pass fair elections.
Of the 103 candidates endorsed by Progressive Maryland, 84 won in Tuesday’s primary elections! These progressive champions are strongly committed to reducing income inequality, ending worker discrimination, supporting working families, ensuring corporations pay their fare share, and enacting a public financing of elections in our state. Progressive Maryland congratulates these individuals on their hard-fought primary campaigns and commits to support them through November wherever needed. Read more and see the full list with links.
