PROGRESSIVE NEIGHBORS ENDORSES HEATHER MIZEUR FOR GOVERNOR


Progressive Neighbors is proud to endorse Delegate Heather Mizeur in her campaign to become the next Governor of Maryland because she is the most progressive candidate in the race. An accomplished legislator, able to reach across the aisle and bring ideological opponents together in pursuit of common interests, Delegate Mizeur will also be Maryland's first female governor as well as possibly becoming America's first openly gay governor.


Our endorsement process was intensive, including a questionnaire dealing with a range of issues, from economic to social – the candidates' responses are posted on our website. Both Delegate Mizeur and Attorney General Doug Gansler provided extensive, thoughtful responses to the questions generated by the Progressive Neighbors endorsement subcommittee. Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown was repeatedly invited to submit his responses, but chose not to do so.


We considered the candidates’ responses in our deliberations, as well as their records. The subcommittee's unanimous decision was ratified by the Steering Committee and then submitted to Progressive Neighbors supporters for comment. This will be our process for future deliberations during the 2014 campaign as well.


We are a growing organization proudly advocating a progressive agenda for Maryland and Montgomery County and believe Delegate Mizeur is best qualified to be the Governor to make our progressive future a reality.
