Former Governor Parris Glendening Endorses Leslie Milano
“For the last 15 years I have worked with advocates and elected officials around the country and the world on efforts to protect our environment,” said Glendening. “Leslie’s focus on transit, walkable, sustainable communities and solar energy will make her a leader in efforts to protect our environment and our planet. She understands good environmental policy is good for the economy. She knows Maryland can be a leader in making alternate energy an important part of our economy. That is why I am enthusiastically supporting Leslie Milano for election to the Maryland House of Delegates.”
Glendening added, “I’ve been involved in Maryland politics for four decades, and as governor, I worked closely with the Maryland House of Delegates to help working families. Leslie Milano brings strong Democratic values, business experience and an innovative approach that isn’t typical in today’s politics.”

"All eyes on the District 18 Democratic primary"
- A Miner Detail, June 14, 2018
Excerpt: "Some political insiders dub Milano as the District 18 “consensus candidate.” Her activist record in fighting against rampant abuses at the behest of multinational corporations combined with her savvy business skills and fierce negotiation abilities makes her a stand-out candidate, a policy wonk and an intrepid mom who will stand up and fight the gun lobby and work to protect students in public schools."
From elected & appointed officials to community leaders,
Leslie Milano has garnered broad support from District 18 residents.

“Leslie’s vision for Forest Glen and District 18 is exactly what we need in MoCo right now. Not only does her plan spark economic growth and enhance our everyday life - but it allows us to grow in a smart way while addressing our traffic and transit issues. I support Leslie because she is what Forest Glen needs moving forward - real leadership and a real vision.”

"There are many candidates running for office in the upcoming Primary Election. I’ve met with many of them and fully endorse one outstanding candidate to represent District 18 in the Maryland House of Delegates: Leslie Milano for Delegate will get my vote for Delegate and I am asking you to consider her too.
Leslie is a strong advocate for improving our schools and closing the achievement gap that exists among our students. She will also work in Annapolis to help strengthen Montgomery County's economy and bring back resources to improve the lives of families throughout our District.

COMMUNITY LEADER, SILVER SPRING
"...as an individual voter, one person in the D18 Delegate race has really stood out to me, Leslie Milano. She has a unique resume of public service and business leadership, along with a rare combination of passion and pragmatism. She is a fierce negotiator, and wants to use her talents to advocate for safe learning spaces for our kids. She will be a terrific asset to the MoCo delegation and will fight for our kids! Please consider her as one of your 3!"
COMMUNITY LEADER, BETHESDA
"I've also been impressed with Leslie Milano's work ethic. She's everywhere throughout District 18! One test for me is will the candidate I'm supporting show up, do their homework, and be available to the community. It's clear to me that Leslie Milano will do that and more!
If the news these past weeks has proved one thing, it's that nothing is more important than our responsibility to carefully exercise our right to vote. Leslie Milano is a hard working, active, and incredibly decent person who will do us proud in Annapolis. I hope next Tuesday on Election Day you will consider voting for her with one of your three votes for District 18 Delegate."
