They used a misleading OFFICIAL DEMOCRATIC BALLOT to advertise the candidates that the Democratic Central Committee wanted. The voters of Prince Georges County got swindled and we did not get Victor Ramirez, Krystal Oriadha, Tony Knotts, and others to represent us.We have to let them know this can NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.
Progressive Maryland issued a call to the Angela Alsobrooks campaign to cease accepting contributions from developers, their attorneys, and their lobbyists. The organization is also demanding that the Alsobrooks campaign return any contributions she has already accepted by May 30th 2018. Progressive Maryland is giving the Alsobrooks campaign three days to issue a response to this request. Sign our petition below to tell Angela Alsobrooks that Prince Georgians are tired of large corporations and developers thinking they can buy elections in our County.
Today March 27, 2018, beginning at 1:00 p.m. The House Judiciary Committee in Annapolis plans to markup Senate Bill 122, or what the legislature calls the "Comprehensive Crime Bill of 2018". This Bill will not move Maryland forward.

Progressive Maryland will stand tomorrow and oppose Senate Bill 122, this Bill is horribly put together. It offers no protection against police brutality, offers no protection against the increasing number of "hate crimes" and mass shootings that lawfully armed individuals, including white nationalists, perpetrate in American society. Instead, Senate Bill 122 offers to incarcerate a generation of black or Latino men and women and to do so during the 2018 election year so as to make the image of incarcerated black and Latino men political fodder during Governor Hogan's reelection campaign. Progressive Maryland will not stand behind any member who supports Senate Bill 122, we will be watching the vote on the Bill closely and will consider pulling endorsements from members who support this bill.
With these thoughts in mind, we ask that you join our fight against racially bigoted injustice, our fight aimed at blocking passage of Senate Bill 122. To stop this legislation, we need to make our voices heard by telephone, by email, and by social media so as to persuade the members of the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Delegate Joseph Vallario of Prince George's County to vote down Senate Bill 122.
Keep this in mind: We have no time for apathy in times like these. Join us in the fight against the racially bigoted injustice that in Maryland goes by the name Senate Bill 122.
