We Are Five Weeks Away

We are five weeks out from the general election, and as we quickly approach the 4th of November, we must refocus and return to active campaign mode to ensure that our hard work over the past year and a half was not in vain. After running a very aggressive campaign that resulted in success during the primary election, we now have limited resources for the general election. As we prepare to knock… read more

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! As the summer begins to wind down, I cannot help but reflect on how we have efficiently utilized our time to move the district forward by build relationships, elevating our youth, and investing in the community. Over the past month, I attended monthly meetings for the following community organizations in an effort to hear directly from constituents: Berea Community Association,… read more

My Voice Does Count

I know you remember Team McCray’s #campaign450. Through this campaign, we received 450 individual campaign donations. Because our team worked so hard to engage the residents, #TeamMcCray had the most grassroots donors out of all the candidates for delegate in the 45th Legislative District, the City of Baltimore, and the State of Maryland. Having the support of the people was very important to… read more

Just a Month Ago

Just a month ago, Team McCray and I were posted at polling locations throughout the 45th Legislative District in an effort to make a final impression on voters before they cast their votes on Primary Election Day. That evening, I learned that I was one of three democratic nominees for delegate, joining incumbent delegates Talmadge Branch and Cheryl Glenn. I remember it like it was… read more

We did it!

We did it! I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who believed in Team McCray and helped to make last night’s victory a reality. I am humbled and honored to represent the Baltimore City residents of the 45th Legislative District in Annapolis. Setting out on our path to secure a seat in the Maryland General Assembly a little over a year ago, the “Gladiators in Purple”successfully ran… read more

There’s no “I” in Team… Meet Team McCray

Good Afternoon Friends- The big day—June 24, 2014—will be here before we know it. But, you do not have to wait until then. Early voting begins this Thursday, June 12 and remains open through the following Thursday, June 19, from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. I am asking all of my strong supporters to head to the polls, sooner rather than later, to cast your vote. By voting early, you allow Team McCray… read more

Less than a month to go

Friends- We are 26 days away from the Democratic Primary on June 24th! With the election quickly approaching, Cory’s campaign is now in full-throttle. We’ve been in the community knocking on doors, calling supporters, and mailing out literature. We’re so thankful for the hard work that hundreds of #TeamMcCray volunteers have contributed to helping us engage with over 15,000 residents! As we’v… read more

Fighting for our families, youth, and workers!

Friends- We are coming down the final stretch! We’re so thankful for the hard work that hundreds of #TeamMcCray volunteers have contributed to helping us engage with over 13,000 residents in the 45th Legislative District! I value every opportunity to speak to residents throughout our district because my life changed for the better when I learned to listen to the people around me. Family and… read more

Small businesses drive our economy

Friends- As a small business owner, I know firsthand the importance of a level playing field to compete in today’s tough economy. Too often, major corporations are allowed to exploit Maryland tax loopholes in order to avoid paying their fair share. This gives them an unfair advantage over small, locally-owned businesses—often making it difficult to succeed. In the 45th Legislative District,… read more

Clean, safe, vibrant communities

Clean, safe, and vibrant communities invigorate participation in caring for them, and instill a sense of ownership and pride in the residents who live there. As I walk various neighborhoods in the 45th Legislative District, I’m disgusted by the sanitation issues that plague our community. I’ve talked to so many residents who care about the cleanliness of their community. They are tired of seeing… read more
