Montgomery County, Maryland, Upcoming Pay-To-Attend Political Events

Upcoming Pay-to-Attend Political Events in Montgomery County, Maryland, for the 2018 Election
Some events also have pay-what-you-can, to allow those who are not wealthy to attend.

My name is Paul M. Bessel and my email address for additions or changes to this list is payevents@paulbessel.com

Democratic Primary Election – June 26, 2018
General Election – November 6, 2018

This list is current as of Sunday, April 22, 2018, at about 5:50am

Latest changes: May 17 event for Barbara Meiklejohn, April 22 event for Erwin Rose for MCDCC, At Large & Lynn Amano, Board Of Ed, Dist.3; May 1 Aruna Miller event; April 21 Muslim Community Center event; April 30 David Moon fundraiser; April 26 George Leventhal event; April 10 George Zokle event; April 15 George Neighbors event

Please, anyone, send me an email – paul@paulbessel.com – NOT Facebook messenger, to let me know of any others events you think should be on this list.

I’ll edit this list, or make new postings, as I find out about more free or pay-to-attend events I think are of interest to politically-minded people in MoCo. Please email me with any suggestions you have.

I strongly encourage candidates to have options for “pay-what-you-can” without checking on what someone pays so voters who are financially challenged can attend your events without embarrassment. Saying you will give waivers for those who request them is not the same thing, as that forces those who can’t afford contributions to embarrass themselves.
