Citing Nancy King’s record of community service, Washington Suburban Sanitary Commissioner Gene Counihan today endorsed her campaign.
“We need the experienced and mature leadership that Nancy King provides to represent us Annapolis in these challenging times,” said Counihan. “Nancy is an established leader in the Senate with a record proven of achievement. She knows how bring people together to get things done. Nancy has my endorsement for Senate in D-39 because I have known and worked with her for nearly 30 years. I have supported and voted for Nancy King in six previous campaigns: twice as a Director of the Montgomery Village Foundation, twice as a Member of the Montgomery County Board of Education, and twice as Delegate to the Maryland General Assembly. She was elected every time and in each office she held she has been an effective advocate and leader for her constituents. Her service and leadership is unmatched.”
Gene Counihan spent 29 years as a teacher and administrator in the Montgomery County public schools. He served three terms in the Maryland House of Delegates and currently serves on the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission. He served as Chair of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, the Montgomery College Board of Trustees, and the Committee for Montgomery.
“I can’t walk down the aisle at my grocery store without running into someone who has a question or needs help with a problem. Finding answers, solving problems and listening to the people I serve is among the most important things I do as a Senator,” said Senator King. “I am accessible and accountable to all of the residents of the 39th district.”
Senator King has been endorsed by state and local leaders and leading advocacy groups, including Governor Martin O’Malley, Montgomery County Executive Isaiah Leggett, the Montgomery County Education Association, and SEIU Maryland and DC State Council. She represents District 39, which includes all or parts of the communities of Montgomery Village, Hadley Farms, Washington Grove, Flower Hill, Germantown, North Potomac, Darnestown, and Derwood.
