Ariana Kelly, Democratic Nominee for Maryland House of Delegates in District 16, has been endorsed by The Washington Post. This adds the area's most important newspaper to a growing list of diverse supporters, which also includes the Fraternal Order of Police, Sierra Club, MCPS teachers, NOW, People for the American Way, League of Conservation Voters, Equality Maryland, NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland, Women's Campaign Forum, and more.
Here's what The Washington Post has to say about Ariana Kelly and her District 16 Democratic teammates, Senator Brian Frosh, Delegate Bill Frick, and Delegate Susan Lee:
DISTRICT 16: Sen. Brian Frosh, the veteran Democratic incumbent, is widely regarded not only as one of the more knowledgeable and independent-minded lawmakers in Annapolis but also among the most honest. He has been a champion of enlightened environmental legislation and a voice for reason on judicial matters, where he holds sway as a committee chairman. His Republican opponent, Jerry Cave, has used his considerable personal wealth on a demagogic mail attack suggesting that Mr. Frosh is soft on child sexual abuse, which is nonsense. Mr. Frosh deserves reelection.
In the House races, we support the two Democratic incumbents, newcomer Del. C. William Frick, who has made a promising debut after having been appointed to an open seat three years ago, and Del. Susan C. Lee, who has made herself an authority on identity theft and Internet fraud. For the third seat, the best bet is Democrat Ariana Kelly, a veteran activist on women's rights, environmental health and consumer product safety issues.
