06.11.14 Voters Guide 2014/Primary Edition Summary (for Takoma Park & Silver Spring, MD)

With early voting beginning tomorrow, I want to get my picks out the door. I’ll provide a fully annotated version in a few days. Note that I only cover my home districts. For other districts, I suggest Progressive Neighbors’ recommendations.

For MD Governor: Write in “Mickey Mouse”
None of the declared Mickey Mice deserves your vote.

For MD Comptroller: Write in “Mickey Mouse”
Peter Franchot, who is running unopposed ditched his Takoma Park progressive roots long ago.

For MD Attorney General: Brian Frosh

For US Congress MD District 8: No endorsement.
Chris Van Hollen no longer gets my vote because he supports NSA surveillance. I don’t know a thing about the other two candidates.

For MD State Senator District 20Jamie Raskin

For MD House of Delegates District 20 (select up to three): Sheila Hixson,  Jonathan Shurberg, Will Smith

For Montgomery County Executive: No endorsement
Phil Andrews wins on integrity, but is too conservative to support a decent minimum wage. Ike Leggett is at best very disappointing. Doug Duncan must be stopped!

For Montgomery County Council At-Large (select up to four): Marc Elrich and Beth Daly only
Do not vote for any additional candidates: your vote for one of them could be the vote pushes Elrich or Daly into fifth place.

For Montgomery County Council District 5: Terrill North

For Montgomery County State’s Attorney: John McCarthy

For Clerk of the Circuit Court: Alan Bowser

For Montgomery County Board of Education At Large: Jill Ortman-Fouse

Other races: no position
