Month: October 2017


Thanks to all of the Team Medinger members who are making our autumn door knocking such a great success. Our biggest turnout – Knocktoberfest – included 31 volunteers engaging voters at the doors. We are gathering valuable information about the concerns of voters in Ellicott City and making many, many new friends.


Yes, even though the weather is changing, the door knocking will continue each Saturday. If you want to join us, please email Sue Geckle at We will have a partner for you (or bring a friend), training and a walk list ready for you.


Going door-to-door is the best way to flip District 9B from red to BLUE.


The senior population is growing rapidly in our area. About 30 percent of our population are part of what’s been called a “silver tsunami.” As a member of the House of Delegates, I will work to make Maryland’s policy for “aging in community” the very best in the nation.


Consider this: One-third of seniors experience intense loneliness and about 28% of seniors live alone. The consequences of loneliness can also have physical affects that are as significant as diabetes, obesity and even smoking. As we move into the holiday season, please consider visiting an elderly member of your family, your neighborhood or your community. Your kindness today will benefit you, too.
