Tree of Life

I attended a very moving vigil for Tree of Life at Beth Shalom Congregation tonight. Faith leaders of all faiths from around the county joined together and a candle was lit for each victim of the tragedy as their names were read. 700 people squeezed into the main room and an overflow room. People lined the walls and sat in the aisles. At the end of the vigil the Rabbi told us that there were several hundred more people outside the building. A very moving moment when we exited the building to see a huge crowd outside singing - unified against hate.

Howard County Muslim Council GOTV

Howard County Muslim Council GOTV rally this morning started with a moment of silence for our Jewish brothers and sisters. As Senator Ben Cardin and Calvin Ball said so eloquently, we must all root out hate in our deeds and in our words and bring this country together. #Vote Howard County Muslim Council (HCMC)

It’s the night before Early Vote, a time to reflect how far we have come. I want to extend a big thank you to Sean Ford and Jennifer Silver Cavey for being the dream team of fieldwork in 9B.

Proud to be a Prescription Drug Affordability Candidate

The cost of prescription drugs is out of control, and now makes up 1/3 of the cost of healthcare. People should not have to choose between life saving drugs and feeding their families. I support the creation of a Maryland Prescription Affordability Board and will fight to make high cost prescription drugs more affordable for Marylanders.

Thank You for Your Support, Emily's List!

Thank you Emily's List - a fierce advocacy organization for women and girls, for your endorsement. "Courtney Watson will be a fierce advocate for stronger, safer communities for Maryland families and EMILY's List is proud to stand with her," said Geri Prado, senior director of state and local campaigns at EMILY's List.

Now or Never

October 2018 Why Courtney? Comptroller Peter Franchot's words are humbling, and his support reflects on my history of carefully monitoring public budgets and making sure tax dollars are spent wisely. Thank you Comptroller Franchot! Issue Spotlight Out of Control Prescription Drug Costs When I knock on doors, I hear a lot about the high cost of prescription drugs. Stories of people working well into their 70s just to be able to afford their prescriptions are not uncommon, and some must choose between prescriptions and groceries.

People all over the country are recognizing how important this election is, and they’re excited to flip this state seat 9B, and make a difference for our country on the local level by changing things from the ground up. President Obama knows exactly how important it is to protect health care, fund our public schools, and help the environment.
