Montgomery County Young Democrats Statement on the Passing of YDM President Joseph Kitchen

August 16, 2020-We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Joseph Kitchen, President of the Young Democrats of Maryland. Our condolences are with his family. He will be deeply missed.

Joseph was a great and energetic advocate for many causes, a great leader who cared about improving people’s lives, and a great friend. He taught us Montgomery County Young Democrats so much about Maryland politics, how to make your voices heard, and how to strive to be better people. Whenever we had questions about how the political process worked or needed advice, Joseph was there.

We urge everyone to respect his family’s request for space during this time of grieving, and to honor him by taking up this work he loved so much.
