Free and open to the public, the annual meeting of the Talbot County Democratic Forum will be held on Sunday, April 2 at the Avalon Theatre in Easton. The social hour begins at 4 p.m with a smorgasbord of food and beverages, and all are welcome to partake in this opportunity to meet Maryland Comptroller Brooke Lierman. Following a brief business meeting, the guest of honor will speak at 5:30 p.m.
As a mother of two, practicing disability and civil rights attorney for several years, two-term state delegate for eight years, and now the first woman independently elected to state office in Maryland, Brooke Lierman is dedicated to creating a state that is resilient and prosperous.
As a member of the House of Delegates, she passed landmark legislation including bills to invest in public transportation and public schools, close loopholes in affordable housing laws, and create an office for statewide broadband.
Partnering with the Maryland General Assembly is now a key element in such efforts. Recognizing also the importance of partnering with local governments, investing in our communities and supporting small businesses, she is an advocate for the people dedicated to building communities that are more equitable, resilient and prosperous, so that all Marylanders can reach their full potential.
The Maryland General Assembly session for 2023 will adjourn on April 10. Scores of bills remain in the balance, and Comptroller Brooke Lierman appreciates this opportunity to communicate accomplishments and hear the concerns of Talbot County citizens.
