The Riverside Club, Asbury Solomons’s Democratic Club, hosted a well-attended candidate forum last week. Among those who participated were candidates from District 1: Tricia Powell and Ted Haynie; District 2: Susie Hance-Wells; District 3: Holly Budd; Candidates At large: Greg Brown, Joe Johnson, Duwane Rager, and Matt Bennett. Each candidate was given five minutes to introduce themselves and share their priorities for Calvert County.
The event was hosted and moderated by Paula Willoughby, Chair of the Riverside Club Steering Committee. She explained that while commissioners register in their district or at large, all Calvert voters will vote for all commissioners. When you go to the polls on November 6th, you will be voting for five commissioners: one from each district plus two at-large.
Afterwards the candidates and the audience enjoyed refreshments provided by the Club while the candidates made themselves available for a “meet and greet.” Audience members mingled with the candidates and were able to ask them questions and get to know them better.

Last Saturday, March 24th, saw a movement that began with the teenagers in Florida but extended to all ages all across America. Hundreds of thousands attended March for Our Lives rallies in nearly 800 locations, the largest being in Washington D.C. Many local Democrats were there to stand up for safe schools and an end to gun violence.
“I volunteered to register people to vote at the March for Our Lives! We met up in the morning at the Georgetown University Law Center to pick up supplies and receive training. It was a very well-coordinated event. [The organizers] did a great job speaking to the volunteers to get us excited about what we were about to do. It may have been the biggest voter registration effort in history.” -Kim Blair
“This is a movement I feel strongly about and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to show my support with one of my best friends. The entire day was moving and it really impacted me. I have faith in March for Our Lives and I am confident that change is coming.” - Yavor Gray (on the left), CASC Historian, HHS FBLA Historian
