HAGERSTOWN – On Saturday, May 21, Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) joined over 85 supporters for a campaign house party in Hagerstown. The event was Delaney’s third grassroots house party since April, following earlier gatherings in Cumberland and Frederick.
“Our campaign house parties are an opportunity to engage with voters in a personal setting, hearing directly from Marylanders about the issues that matter to them and discussing how we can build a strong middle class,” said Delaney. “The stakes of this election could not be higher and I’m going to stand with working families in Washington County and stand opposed to Donald Trump and his allies. We can’t insult our way to prosperity for Western Maryland, we have to have a real plan and that starts with world class education for all, creating more good-paying jobs by expanding I-81 and strengthening our national security and veterans programs, not weakening them with the radical and debt-driving Trump agenda.”
This week, Delaney filed legislation to protect Garrett County jobs and encourage economic development in Western Maryland and authored a resolution to reaffirm the U.S. alliance with NATO, a key security partnership since 1949.
Last month, Delaney opened campaign offices in Gaithersburg and Hagerstown. After two decades as a successful entrepreneur, innovator, business and non-profit leader, Delaney was elected to represent Maryland’s Sixth District in 2012. Since taking office, Delaney has earned local and national praise for his thoughtful results-oriented approach on economic policy.
