Another busy weekend for Trone’s campaign includes six stops in four different counties across Maryland and concludes with a roundtable discussion and the announcement of Trone’s Latine Advisory Board.
Gaithersburg, Md. – This weekend, Rep. David Trone, candidate for the U.S. Senate, traveled across Maryland hearing from a diverse group of activists, advocates, and voters in four counties. As the campaign continues to build momentum, Trone is fulfilling his commitment to listen and put voters first.
On Saturday, Trone started the day meeting with the South County Democratic Club of Prince George’s County, understanding the needs in the region and learning how he can effectively represent them in the U.S. Senate. He then hosted two meet and greets in Prince George’s and Frederick Counties, speaking with Nigerian community leaders and local activists about his message and his values.
He started his day on Sunday visiting Salem United Methodist Church in Baltimore, worshiping with Hispanic families from across the city. In the afternoon, Trone hosted a roundtable with Hispanic community leaders in Hyattsville, discussing issues that are important to the community — including education, jobs, and immigration.
The roundtable, which marked the end of Hispanic Heritage Month, also served as the formal launch of Trone’s Latine Advisory Board, made up of community leaders from across the state, and gave the Congressman the opportunity to hear directly from community leaders and members about their concerns and aspirations.
The campaign announced former Maryland State Delegate Ana Sol Gutierrez, the first Latina elected to public office in Maryland, and the Honorable Barbara Ebel as co-chairs of the advisory board. A full list of advisory board members will be released in the coming weeks.
Closing the weekend, Trone joined elected officials and activists in Kensington for a Communities United Against Hate event to fight against anti-Semitism and create a framework among supportive communities to battle intolerance.
Statement from Rep. Trone:
“The very best part of this work is hearing from folks on the ground, learning how I can better represent them and help them tackle the challenges that their communities face. It’s a tremendous honor to spend my days traveling to every corner of the state hearing from such a diverse group of people — and it’s something I look forward to continuing throughout the campaign and my time in public service.”
