Started from the Bottom…Now We’re Here!
Team McCray has been extremely busy this past week, as we knocked on hundreds of doors, made stops on the “Listening Tour” in the Belair-Edison community and participated in Chatman-Harris Funeral Home’s Back to School Drive.
Last Saturday, Cory was joined by a diverse group of “Listening Tour” canvassers, including members of the Prince George’s County Young Democrats, union representatives, political activists and retirees. Together, this dynamic team of volunteers knocked on doors in the Belair-Edison community, engaging with constituents on Dudley Avenue, Shannon Drive, Kenyon Avenue, Ramona Avenue, Elmora Avenue, and Lyndale Avenue.
At one point throughout the day, Cory and Team McCray ran into a small group of community activists who reside within the 3900-block of Dudley Avenue, known as the “Dudley Do Rights.” This group of leaders meets regularly to keep their block clean and safe. Concerned about the future of the Belair-Edison community, the members of the “Dudley Do Rights” were very supportive of Cory’s aspirations to represent them in the House of Delegates. One member indicated that she normally does not display campaign lawn signs on her property, but that she would make an exception for a “McCray for Delegate” lawn sign…Let’s say, WINNING!
To conclude a rewarding day in the 45th Legislative District, Team McCray joined Baltimore City Councilman Brandon Scott at a Back to School Drive hosted by Chatman-Harris Funeral. On the corner of Belair Road and Parkside Drive, young leaders and future voters received school supplies and enjoyed positive entertainment.
As you can see, Cory and Team McCray are making strides week after week. We are committed to hearing from and engaging with as many 45th Legislative District constituents as possible to ensure that Cory has a comprehensive handle on the issues and concerns of each community in order to effectively and competently represent their respective needs in Annapolis once elected.
These efforts have not gone unnoticed. Outside of the 45th Legislative District’s incumbent state legislators, Cory was the only candidate recognized in a recent Maryland Reporter feature titled, “Md. General Assembly races: September update on candidates.” But, wait! Not only was Cory mentioned, a large photo accompanied the notable mention.
We started from the bottom, now we’re here. So come on and help us take this to the next level.
