Are the days starting to blur together for you, too? This is a difficult time for all of us, and each of us is experiencing this global pandemic differently. To the frontline healthcare workers, to those who have sick loved ones, to those who are struggling financially as a result of COVID-19: please know that we are all thinking of you. Together, we will get through this public health crisis.

If you are interested in joining volunteer efforts or if you are in need of resources, feel free to use our COVID-19 Resource Page. As always, if you or a neighbor needs help getting connected to the right resources, please don’t hesitate to call me at 410-340-0870. My team and I are ready to assist you.

Endorsement News

I’m proud to announce that I have been endorsed by the National Organization for Women’s Maryland chapter! NOW has been fighting for equal rights for decades and I’m humbled that this important and historic organization has endorsed my candidacy.

I will bring my years of experience advocating for women and families to my position on the City Council and will work to implement my plan to close the gender wage gap, improve women’s public transportation experiences, and decriminalize sex work.

Get a Sign

Because we are so limited in our ability to connect with voters these days, visibility is more important than ever. I’m grateful to every single supporter who has offered to put up a yard sign, railing sign, or window sign. Every sign helps us spread our message. Request a sign today and we will drop it off for you.

2020 Census Update

Have you filled out the Census yet? For every person counted in Baltimore City, our community will benefit from an additional $18,000 over the next ten years. It’s critical that every single person is counted so that we receive funding for important things like healthcare, education, transit, and affordable housing…which means you need to fill it out!

You can see here that Baltimore City is lagging behind other Maryland jurisdictions and even the national average of census completion. We must change that.
You can fill out the census online here: www.my2020census.gov or respond by phone and get live assistance at 844-330-2020.

Stay healthy and safe! 


Paris Bienert

Candidate, First District
