I’m Colleen Ebacher and I’m running for Baltimore County Council District 3.
Momentum is growing for a fresh start in Baltimore County! In the last reporting period, our campaign out-raised our opponent by more than 4-to-1, with 25 times more donors–despite taking no money from developers or business PACs. This is what grassroots momentum looks like! I am so grateful for the outpouring of support for our campaign. So far, we’ve been endorsed by the Baltimore Sun, Metro Baltimore Council AFL-CIO, Progressive Maryland, the Central Baltimore County Democratic Club, the Baltimore County Progressive Democrats Club, The Baltimore-Washington Laborers’ District Council and the Teachers Association of Baltimore County (TABCO).
I am committed to bringing people together to work for a transparent and responsive government, getting big money out of politics, 21st-century schools, empowering our seniors, and engaging young people in our democracy. I have a plan and a vision to address the opioid crisis, to unleash smart growth and sustainable development in our county, prepare for climate change by decarbonizing the grid, improve our air quality by reducing the negative impact of our waste, and revitalize our public transit system. Please check out the “Issues” page or read about some of my ideas for change in my Baltimore Sun op-eds for more details.
Confronting today’s challenges will require hard work. I have the experience and expertise for the job. As an administrator and five-time U.S. Department of Education grant recipient, I’ve managed large budgets and have brought people together to find fresh solutions to complex problems. As a mother of four, a small business owner and a professor at Towson University, I’ve been training the next generation of leaders for decades.
My opponent is a career politician who’s been in office for over 40 years. Since 2015, 60 percent of his legislation has failed. People in District 3 need and deserve better. It is time for a fresh start! Vote Colleen Ebacher during early voting October 25-November 1 or on Election Day, Tuesday November 6, 2018.
