Gordon Clark, GP candidate in Maryland 8th CD, To Launch Campaign June 20th

Hi everyone, I’m David Gaines, long time Green Party activist and organizer and now the fulltime campaign manager for Gordon Clark, who is running to unseat Democrat Chris Van Hollen (head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) in Maryland’s 8th District (most of Montgomery and part of Prince George’s counties, right on top of Washington, D.C.).

We’re very happy to announce the official launch for Gordon’s campaign, which will take place on Friday, June 20th. Anyone and everyone within shouting distance of the DC/MD/VA area is encouraged to attend. Come and show solidarity with and support for what I promise will be one of the most visible & exciting Green Congressional campaigns this year! Here is the announcement we’ve been sending out to Green mailing lists:


Save the date!

WHAT: Gordon Clark, Green Party candidate for US Congress from Maryland’s 8th District, official campaign launch & fundraiser featuring award-winning singer/songwriters Emma’s Revolution! Beer, wine, other refreshments, and plenty of campaign excitement will be on hand, too!

** Suggested donation at the door: $10 (no one will be turned away)

WHEN: Friday, June 20th, 7:30pm

WHERE: The Washington Ethical Society, 7750 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC – approximately 5 blocks into the District from the Washington/Silver Spring border near the corner of Kalmia and 16th Street. For directions and Metro & bus instructions, go to http://www.ethicalsociety.org/directions.php

We hope to see all Maryland Greens there to show the media that Gordon is running a top notch, serious campaign for Congress. You don’t have to be an 8th District resident to support the campaign! Save the date — come on out and join with the progessive community in providing an impressive start to this remarkable activist’s campaign.

  1. Welcome to the group David. I am looking forward to reading more about this very exciting campaign. Look out folks…here comes the Green Party!

  2. Pleased to be here. I’ll be blogging about Gordon’s campaign from time to time as things happen — and things will be happening, in a big way.

  3. I should mention also that the June 20th campaign launch is a fundraiser and we’re asking for a suggested donation of $10 at the door……more if you can afford it, of course! Give ’til it hurts!
