Caroline --

 

We hope you are having a wonderful June so far! This month is Pride Month, which commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Uprising that occurred in Manhattan.  In addition, we recognize Juneteenth or “Freedom Day” on June 20th, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.  June is also PTSD Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about PTSD and much needed equitable treatment options. 

We are getting closer to the July Primary every day! Did you mark your calendars yet? Or in this day and age, add an event to your smart phone for July 19? 

As an additional reminder, June 28th is the last day to register to vote for the upcoming Primary Election. 

Requests for mail-in ballots for the  Primary Election must be received by July 12, 2022.  

Request a mail-in ballot, register to vote, or check your voter registration status at:  https://elections.maryland.gov/elections/2022/index.html

Delegate Brian Crosby

Dear friends and supporters,

With 53 days left until the primary, our campaign has been moving ahead full-force!  We've seen many of you as we've been out knocking doors and attending local events, but would love to catch you this month, too.

 

We are also honored to be included by the host committee for a fundraiser on Wednesday, June 15 alongside Maryland Comptroller Candidate, Brooke Lierman. Information about that event is below, and you may purchase tickets or donate here
 
HOW TO HELP:
Many of you have asked how to help make sure that I get re-elected. We are taking this one race at a time. Right now, we are working toward a win in the primary, and then, we will move on to the general election against Deb Rey. We know that neither of these races is going to be easy, and we can always use volunteers. To get involved in the campaign teamclick here. To request a yard signclick here, and one of our volunteers will drop it off for you.

Asking for money is the hardest part of campaigning, in my opinion, but it is necessary. If you can contribute, I can promise you one thing-- I will not be letting your money "sit there" and go to waste! We will be using it on advertising, signs, and anything we can to win re-election in this most competitive race in the state.
CONTRIBUTE TO KEEP THIS PROGRESS GOING!
Thank you for your support over the last four years. Now, it's time to work hard so that we can have another four years of bringing resources to our community!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Brian
