Vote Gay: Maryland

Mary Washington
Candidate for Maryland State Delegate, District 43

Mary could become just the second openly lesbian Black-American state legislator in the country if she wins this race for the Maryland House of Delegates—the lower house of the state legislature.

Since earning her Ph.D. in 1997, Mary has used her skills to lead programs that hold public officials accountable and help city residents get the resources they need. She works as an associate director of one of the nation’s largest urban environmental groups and serves on the Baltimore Sustainability Commission, the Baltimore Green Jobs Coalition and the Democratic State Central Committee. She has also served as the first director of Baltimore’s HousingStat program and as president of her community association and she continues to play a leading role in a number of important civic projects.

Her record of achievement and her progressive ideas for the state’s future have won Mary’s campaign the support of leading civil rights, labor and environmental groups across the state including Equality Maryland, the Metropolitan Baltimore Council of the AFL-CIO, the SEIU, the Maryland State Education Association, Progressive Maryland, NARAL Pro-choice Maryland, the Democratic Women’s PAC of Maryland, The Sierra Club and the Maryland League of Conservation Voters.
