D1 Neighbors Endorses Marc Elrich for County Executive

SILVER SPRING, Md._ On May 4, Marc Elrich received the endorsement of D1 Neighbors, a group of residents who live in Montgomery County Council District 1. D1 Neighbors supports local officials who believe in “balancing growth and infrastructure in ways that make Montgomery County a great place for both residents and employers.”

D1 Neighbors lists “integrity/accountability,” “experience,” Elrich’s “vision for improving MoCo’s economic environment and addressing the County’s financial challenges,” and his “reputation as a champion of fairness” as reasons for their endorsement. “Marc Elrich understands that MoCo has to balance support for businesses and job creation with other county needs, including the adequacy of schools, roads, transportation and green space, as well as environmental stewardship, safety, and care for our seniors,” D1 Neighbors notes. “Whether it is championing for workers by seeking a fair minimum wage or championing for homeowners who believe that the Planning Board fails to treat residents as important voices in the planning process, Marc Elrich has a well-deserved reputation of pursuing results that are fair to the stakeholders.”

The endorsement is the second of the week for Elrich, who was endorsed by Maryland Working Families on Tuesday, and his 19th endorsement overall. The diversity of his endorsements reflects Elrich’s longstanding commitment to representing all of Montgomery County’s residents.

“D1 Neighbors asked great questions during their interview process, and the group is doing a real service to the residents of District 1 by parsing out which candidates can be trusted to deliver results for the community,” Elrich said. “Especially as someone who has been involved in neighborhood organizing myself, I know the value of the work they’re engaged in and am proud to have their support.”
