Next Saturday, freshman Delegate Cory McCray (D-45) is holding a campaign event in which he is expected to announce a challenge to long-time Baltimore City Senator Nathaniel McFadden. It’s a gutsy move that will be one of the marquee races in the city. The Baltimore Sun and Maryland Matters have both covered the impending race. We reprint McCray’s announcement below.
Special Announcement about the 2018 Elections
What: Friends, family, and neighbors across Baltimore’s 45th Legislative District will gather for a special announcement from Delegate Cory McCray
When: Saturday, September 16, 2017 @ 10:00 A.M.
Where: Clifton Park – 2555 Harford Road, Baltimore, MD 21218 (Across From Fairmount Harford High School)
Who: Lifelong Baltimore resident and member of the House of Delegates, Delegate Cory McCray
Why: Baltimore is a strong community filled with potential, and we deserve political leadership who will help turn that potential into a reality.
Growing up in Baltimore, Cory could have easily become a statistic. He changed his life when he found an opportunity to do better. He wants to provide those same opportunities to the residents in the 45th district. Though the challenges Baltimore faces are significant, Cory is prepared to deal with those challenges head on. Baltimore is a town that has passion and determination to push through these difficult times. September 16th, Cory will make an announcement regarding his plans to fight for the community that raised him. The 45th district deserves a leader who will listen and provide services to improve the quality of life, where the community are partners in progress.
Cory McCray, is a husband, father of four, union electrician and, he’s willing to make the hard choices necessary to begin the healing in Baltimore.
