Celebrating Bessie Bordenave

A great day to celebrate Bessie Bordenave and help launch her into retirement. Something makes me think she’s going to stay busy helping the community. #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #WatsonHester #Stronger9B #Maryland #HowardCounty #CourtneyWatson

Great Conversations!

Best January day for knocking on doors! Lots of people were home and anxious to talk (as was Barnaby, the dog). I spoke with several teachers today concerned with funding on the local and state level, lack of salary increases with an increased workload. Maryland schools have dropped from #1 a few years ago to #6 this year (Education Week). This affects kids, our economy, and property values. There is much we can do on the state level to reverse this trend. Join the campaign. #stronger9B. #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #WatsonHester #Stronger9B #Maryland #HowardCounty #CourtneyWatson

Fund and Build the Bikeway

This is an incredibly important initiative. Howard County has fallen behind in funding its bikeways which help take cars off the road, help encourage exercise, and increase property values. Click on the link to learn more about the Bikeway project and how you can encourage its funding by local government. #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #WatsonHester #Maryland #Stronger9B #HowardCounty #CourtneyWatson

We Must Save DACA

Brought here as small children, these Dreamers went to Howard County schools and graduated from Howard Community College and went on to earn (and earning) 4 year degrees. They each gave riveting remarks tonight at the Howard County Muslim Council Dinner about overcoming adversities many of us couldn’t even imagine. Courageous and inspiring, these are our children. We must save DACA. #HCMC2018 #MDPolitics #9B #HoCoMD #Stronger9B #WatsonHester #HowardCounty #Maryland

Thank You Volunteers!

Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers this week. We reached 750 voters between our phone bank and door knocking. We also met an impressive group of Ellicott City girls at the Women’s March, as well as Cash, this week’s pet of 9B. #Wedontstop #Stronger9B #Petsof9B #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #WatsonHester #Stronger9B #Maryland #HowardCounty #CourtneyWatson

Baltimore Women's March

Baltimore Women’s March. Quite a day. One year later, still much work to do, but the load is lighter with so many hands. #BaltimoreWomensMarch #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #WatsonHester #Stronger9B #HowardCounty #Maryland #CourtneyWatson

Howard County and Opioids - Join Us for this Important Conversation

Join former Councilmember Courtney Watson for a informative discussion on the opioid crisis which caused 57 deaths in Howard County in 2017. What do you need to know, and how you can be helpful here in our own community? Joan Webb Scornaienchi from HC DrugFree will tell us about the current state of the crisis in Howard County. Hear from Ellicott City parent Beth Harbinson about her family's experience, and how she plans to start to change our local culture to embrace alternatives for people with addiction who are working to remain sober. There will be time for questions and answers from the audience. Tuesday, February 13 at 7 PM - 8:30 PM Miller Library (Cosponsored by Together We Will Howa

MLK Day Volunteering

Fun to volunteer along side one of Ellicott City’s Girl Scout troops on MLK Day. We chatted about women running for office and I was told by the troop leader that some already plan to run for President. Good to hear! #MsPresident #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #Stronger9B #WatsonHester #Maryland #HowardCounty #CourtneyWatson

It Takes a Team - Thank YOU

It takes a team... and I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who donated to my campaign for State Delegate 9B. The first public report due out this week will show that we had more than 300 donations in the 132 days since I announced my run. It was wonderful to see that 86% of donations were from people who live in Howard County and a very healthy majority of 56% of dollars were from people who live in District 9B. No one can do this alone, and you inspire me every day to work hard for the residents of Ellicott City and all of Maryland. #MDPolitics #HoCoMD #9B #WatsonHester #Stronger9B #HowardCounty #CourtneyWatson

New Year, New Nine!

Why Courtney? Endorsement of the Week: Tom Coale "I am supporting Courtney Watson for House of Delegates because she has the experience, dedication, and know-how to build coalitions and get things done in Annapolis. From President Trump to the talking heads on television, political experience has been maligned as something we should avoid in our elected officials. As a result, we've had the great misfortune of seeing what happens when inexperienced people get put in positions of responsibility. If we want change, we need someone who has experience creating it. If we want women's rights to be protected, we need a woman leader who knows what's at stake. If we want a better Ellicott City, we n
