Governor O'Malley Endorses Judd

George Wenschhof

I just received a press release with Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley expressing his support for Jason Judd for mayor of The City of Frederick. This should hardly come as a surprise as the Governor is a strong supporter of Democrats.

Back in the 2001 city election, I requested O'Malley to headline a campaign rally days prior to the general election in support of Democrat Jennifer Dougherty for Mayor and the Democratic slate of aldermen.

He gladly accepted and attended the event held at Whitaker at Hood College along with his Father-in-Law; Attorney General Joe Curren. I had also managed to have O'Malley's March" or perhaps it was called "The March" by then to play at the rally. Martin was mayor of The City of Baltimore at that time, but it was obvious by his appeal to everyone in attendance, he had future political opportunities ahead of him. He joined his former band and played guitar and sang for what seemed like an hour, highlighting a successful campaign rally.

Dougherty would go on to win that 2001 election and three Democrats were elected as Aldermen.

This weekend, Frederick County Young Democrats joined by volunteers will be dropping off leaflets of The City of Frederick Democratic ticket. It is similar to what we produced back in 2001 including a photo and a short platform description so look forward to receiving over the weekend.
