Marc Elrich Wins Democratic Primary for Montgomery County Executive

SILVER SPRING, Md._ On July 8, the Board of Elections finished counting ballots from the Democratic primary for Montgomery County Executive. In the close race, Marc Elrich beat David Blair by 80 votes. Certification of the results is expected to take place on Monday, July 16.

“It is an honor to have been chosen by Montgomery County’s Democrats to represent the party in the general election,” Elrich said. “Especially given the big-money interests and often-hostile media environment we were up against, the fact that we were still able to win is a testament to the grassroots efforts of the thousands of activists throughout the county who supported my campaign. I look forward to the general election and continuing to work hand-in-hand with residents and the new County Council to address the problems and challenges we face while we work to enhance our quality of life. I also want to thank all the people at the Board of Elections - the Board members and the staff who have been working so hard to make sure that every vote that should have been counted was counted.”


Marc Elrich has been an at-large Montgomery County Councilmember since 2006. He chairs the Public Safety Committee, serves on the Education Committee, and is the County Council’s representative to the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Transportation Planning Board. Prior to his election to the County Council, he served on the Takoma Park City Council for 19 years and taught at Rolling Terrace Elementary School for 17 years. For more information, see
