There are many challenges inherent to running a county-wide race for a position, Clerk of the Circuit Court, that gets little attention. In many ways, though, the labor that I am investing to show Howard County how hard I will work not only to obtain this privilege, but once I have it, is incredibly rewarding. In the past ten days I have volunteered at the Kidz Triathalon in Columbia, participated in a community clean-up in Savage, supported a fantastic grassroots Cookout for the Cure (breast cancer) that raised hundreds of dollars, and visited over 2000 doors to talk to residents or just to leave behind some literature describing my goals for our courthouse. I do all of this while commuting to Washington, D.C., for a full-time job that supports me while I press my candidacy.
While I would love to be able to launch wave after wave of mailings or have an army of volunteers doing this work for me, I enjoy the positive reactions I receive from nearly every citizen I meet. With over 275,000 residents in the county and 100,000 votes likely to be cast, I won’t be able to meet all of you. I can only hope that those of you who I do encounter can spread the word that there is a candidate who will bring a fresh energy and strong leadership to our Circuit Court.
I look forward to seeing you in the community or on your doorstep. Learn more at www.reddish2010.com
