More endorsements for Chris Van Hollen, this time from Frederick County. New County Executive Jan Gardner, former Congresswoman Beverly Byron and the three Democratic members of the County Council all endorsed Van Hollen today.
“Tireless,” “dedicated” and “down to earth” were among the words Frederick County officials used to describe Rep. Chris Van Hollen during a Thursday afternoon news conference at the C. Burr Artz Public Library.
County Executive Jan Gardener and council members M.C. Keegan-Ayer, Jessica Fitzwater and Jerry Donald pledged support and gave their official endorsements to Van Hollen, D-8th, in his bid for the United States Senate.
“Chris is the real deal,” Gardner said. “He knows Frederick County and he knows our needs. We need a strong leader and a strong advocate like Chris Van Hollen.”
