10.25.14 Endorsing David Moon & the D20 team + Anthony Brown

The Washington Post  is scared of forceful progressives. For years, they refused to so much as to print Marc Elrich’s name in their reporting. (That they have come to see Marc as effective, rather than dangerous, is credit to Marc’s enormous skill.) Last week, the Post didn’t even mention David Moon in their endorsements for Maryland District 20 and endorsed Dan Robinson (running as a Green) instead. The Post’s fright should be fuel for D20 progressive voters!

David Moon, a Takoma Park resident, has been active in Maryland and Montgomery County politics for years. He has a proven record of speaking truth to power. He knows all the players, processes, and committees in Annapolis. And he is the closely allied of the rest of our Democratic D20 team: Jamie Raskin, Sheiia Hixson, and Will Smith. Electing them together will create a D20 dynamo with impressive power for our values and our region.

David Moon and Dan Robinson agree on policy 90% of the time (David is at least as green as Dan), except that David likely to be more progressive  on economic justice issues. 

Dan, also a Takoma Park resident, is a nice guy with a record of community involvement (including a term on city council), but it not as prepared for this job as David. Since he has not built relationships with Jamie, Sheila, and Will, he will lessen their effectiveness if he is elected.

I urge D20 voters to support the entire Democratic D20 team: Jamie Raskin, Sheila Hixson, David Moon, and Will Smith.

PS. You must vote in this election. Medieaval Republican Larry Hogan is dangerously close to Anthony Brown in the race for governor. Every progressive and Democrat who sits this race out moves our state closer to the 13th century. Don’t let that happen — early voting has already stated and election day is November 4.
