Ben Jealous and Susie Turnbull, Democratic Nominees for Governor and Lt. Governor

Democratic Gubernatorial nominee, Ben Jealous is a civil rights leader, community organizer, investor in startups for good, educator, former investigative journalist, and a Rhodes Scholar who has spent his life bringing people together to get big things done. In 2013 he was named "Marylander of the Year" by the Baltimore Sun for the roles he played in leading the effort to abolish the death penalty, helping to ensure that the effort to pass marriage equality was successful, chairing the effort to pass the DREAM Act, and working to expand voting rights. His running mate, Susan Turnbull, has dedicated more than 40 years to community activism, civil rights, political organizing, and creating opportunities for everyday people to access their government. She has worked in a variety of governmental, non-profit, business, and political positions, including Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party, a senior advisor and grant consultant to several members of Congress, owner of an interior space planning company, and service on various charitable boards. Join us on October 1 to hear their plans for Maryland’s future and to learn how you can help take back the Governor’s mansion.
