Last Saturday, May 21st, the Montgomery County Young Democrats held an Alumni Day/Ice Cream Social in Acorn Park in downtown Silver Spring. We heard from Delegates Gabriel Acevero, Marc Korman, Emily Shetty, and Jheanelle Wilkins, Gaithersburg Councilmember Laurie-Anne Sayles, and Samir Paul about getting involved in politics.
Some of the advice: be able to do smaller tasks and deliver on them. Eventually you will take on bigger and bigger issues. Be intentional about one thing and bring your friends. And keep in touch with your state legislators–they are very accessible and eager to hear from you.
A big thank you to everyone who came, and we hope to do more events like this in the future.
