Former Delegate Gene Counihan Endorses Nancy King

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.

    Baltimore, Md., — The Daily Record named Senator Nancy J. King to its 2014 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women. The Daily Record’s Maryland’s Top 100 Women was started 18 years ago to shine the spotlight on accomplished women throughout the state,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “The honorees are women who excel at their jobs. They are keenly devoted to bettering the communities where they live and work. They devote their time, their talents and their mentoring skills to improving Maryland’s businesses, its residents, its communities and its future women leaders.”

    Three hundred and seventy women were nominated for the statewide honor. Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit letters of recommendation from those who are familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community and through mentoring.

    A panel of judges comprised of business professionals and past Maryland’s Top 100 Women winners from throughout Maryland reviewedthe applications and selectedthis year’s honorees. 

    In 2014, 63 women are first-time recipients. Fifteen women will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence. Circle of Excellence honorees will receive the award for a third and final time.

    “Through Maryland’s Top 100 Women, The Daily Record recognizes 100 amazing leaders for stellar achievements in their careers, for their exemplary citizenship and for encouraging and shaping the lives of a younger generation through mentoring,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “These women share an amazing talent for balancing many facets of their lives. And we’re pretty certain they mastered what we all desire—the ability to get 25 hours of daily work done in an allotted 24.”

    The awards were presented at a cocktail reception on Monday, May 5, at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., in Baltimore. For a full listing of this year’s Top 100 Women, click here.
