I sat down with Taya Graham to explain how a progressive Democrat can win in Baltimore County’s District 3–and why it matters. Check it out!
I had a wonderful time at this week’s “Cookies with Colleen” event, meeting neighbors and new friends and discussing how we can make a fresh start in Baltimore County! Intimate gatherings with concerned citizens are such a great way to connect and discuss the challenges we face in Baltimore County. Plus: there were cookies!!

Over thirty supporters enjoyed delicious paella and sangría at our fundraiser this weekend, hosted by dear friends at their lovely home! Amazing Team Colleen chef Marcos Gonzalez along with events coordinator par excellence Martine Milman cooked for days and the result was amazing. After many long days of canvassing, breaking bread and connecting with new and old friends and allies is perfect sustenance. We all left sated and re-energized to rebuild our democracy and flip District 3 blue!

Thanks to Indivisible Towson and Indivisible North Baltimore County, we had an incredibly successful Day of Action for our campaign and the campaign of Sachin Hebbar, my fellow progressive who’s running for State Delegate in 42B! Over a dozen volunteers came out to canvass–in and out of the rain–and another dozen spent a few hours writing postcards, encouraging our neighbors to vote. And yes, there was CAKE!

On Friday February 23, 2018, I filed to run for Baltimore County Council District 3. Here’s why.
It’s because I’ve lived in this district for 22 years–and I know that it is time for a fresh start.
For too long, our political leaders have favored the interests of big money and developers over the concerns of regular people. Developers have wrangled special deals and exceptions to the rules. Our students have been forced to learn in overcrowded classrooms in crumbling buildings, we have a public transit system that neither serves the needs of community members nor those of business owners, and our county is in the midst of an opioid epidemic that has led to the death of thousands of our neighbors.
As a parent, an educator, an advocate and a long-time resident, I know we can do better.
We deserve a transparent and responsive government that listens to the people and not to big money interests. Together, we can achieve a plan for 21st-century schools that doesn’t pit one school against another. We can revitalize our ailing commercial corridors and protect our green space. We can implement real solutions to our opioid crisis.
Don’t you think so, too?
