At-Large County Council Candidate Earned Long String of Endorsements

SILVER SPRING, Md. — Supporters of Will Jawando, candidate for County Council At-Large, will be gathering with Jawando at All Set Restaurant & Bar in Downtown Silver Spring at 8pm Tuesday to watch returns in the contested at-large county council race.

Jawando, 35, of Silver Spring, won endorsements from a long list of progressive organizations and people, including the highly-coveted position on the Apple Ballot with support from the Montgomery County Education Association, a spot on the Bus Ballot with support from SEIU Local 500, and a position on the Green Ballot with his endorsement from the Sierra Club.

“I’m honored and grateful to have earned the support of so many residents of Montgomery County, and those organizations that want to work to make public policy inclusive and forward-thinking,” Jawando said. “This has been a long road, but every day I meet people whose personal stories remind me of why it is so important that we work to keep the Montgomery County Promise. If I’m elected, I will work for every resident of Montgomery County, and not just the special interests.”
