In an effort to provide as much information to the public as possible regarding COVID-19, Paris has created a resource page on her website. We will be keeping this page current with helpful information as it becomes available.
As of now, we do not have any updates about how or if voting for the April 28th Democratic Primary will change. For now, everyone is able to request an absentee ballot for any reason. Click here to request an absentee ballot online.
While we are still focused on winning our upcoming election for Baltimore City Council, we are adapting all our campaign efforts in light of COVID-19. We want to minimize any risk to our volunteers, supporters, voters, and the community at large.
For this reason, we have discontinued all door-knocking and transitioned all our field operations to remote work. We will be ramping up our phone-banking and letter-writing activities.
If you have time to volunteer remotely to help our campaign, please sign up here or respond to this email.
Our office will be closed to the public until further notice, and we have posted a sign on the door asking folks to call the campaign at 410-340-0870 if they need anything.
For the time being, we are suspending all campaign-related events. Paris is scheduled to speak at several upcoming neighborhood association meetings which will likely be cancelled. We will keep you posted if anything changes.
Despite everything that is going on, we do still have a major fundraising deadline coming up on Tuesday, March 17th. Now that we can no longer interact one-on-one with voters, we need to increase our budget to afford more mailers and digital ads. We need to raise $6,500 more than we planned to adapt to these new, unforeseen circumstances.
Paris will be spending extra time on the phone next week making fundraising calls to reach this increased goal. Can you help out by making a donation online right now?

For the 100+ supporters who have been waiting to receive yard signs…the shipment has finally arrived! We will be busy over the next few days delivering signs to all those who have requested them. If you live in District 1 and would like to show your support, click here to request your sign.
