Like many of you, I was angry when I received an anonymous attack on my friend Councilwoman Valerie Ervin before today’s Montgomery County Democratic brunch. Many of you told me that you deleted the message right away when you realized it was an ugly attack on Valerie. But I read the whole thing – and I am really angry about these lies.
This outrageous attack is an attack on me too. I stood with Valerie on the budget and on the SNAP the Silence Challenge – I stand with her everyday to move our county forward. As women of color, we want to make Montgomery County a better place to live and work for our whole community. It is outrageous to think that we are doing the bidding of right wing extremists like ALEC or the Koch brothers. I could laugh about it if I weren’t so outraged.
We will not let cowards tell lies about our friend Valerie. Join me and sign this petition to show your support for Valerie. She stands up for us every day and it’s time for us to stand up for her.
Montgomery Council President
