From Del. Glen Glass:
Notice to the Great Constituents of District 34,
I applaud the efforts of Senator Nancy Jacobs and Delegate Mary-Dulany James for their leadership in serving the citizens of District 34.
I have reached out to the both of them on several occasions to discuss how the three of us can forge a strategic partnership in regards to the congressional redistricting and same-sex marriage petition drives that are currently underway. I believe working together can draw further attention to our endeavors, both on a local level as well as statewide.
Unfortunately due to their busy schedules, Senator Jacobs and Delegate James have been unable to make a commitment to this cause. I am certainly understanding of their circumstances, however, time is running out and we need all the help we can get if we are going to bring this map to referendum.
Last year I was the Harford Coordinator to bring the Dream Act, which would have given instate tuition for illegal immigrants, to referendum with the help of Harford County citizens and many volunteers. We were successful with getting it on the ballot. However, Senator Jacobs was unable to help us with that petition drive as well.
We are in a unique position to assist each other in our efforts to promote both petitions to a statewide audience, as well as a targeted, local approach. With the three of us living in the district, we have the experience to promote these very important petitions on a grassroots level and their influence as a State Senator and Delegate can reach far beyond Harford and Cecil County to acquire more signatures. I believe that their work, contacts, and sphere of influence could greatly benefit this campaign.
I ask that you contact their offices and urge them to assist with the petition drive to stop the congressional redistricting map. We need their help in our final push to place this on the ballot in November.
You can also support us by visiting www.mdpetitions.com where you can download, sign, and mail in your petition. If you would like to serve on the frontlines with me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. Right now Congress has a current approval rating of only 9%; the citizens of Maryland deserve better.
Your Delegate and Servant Glen Glass
