Cooper To Hold Panel Discussion Fundraiser


District 16 House of Delegates candidate Jordan Cooper will hold a panel discussion fundraiser at his family's North Bethesda home on Thursday on the topic of good governance in Montgomery County. Cooper, 27, is likely to be the youngest candidate in a crowded field vying for what could be two vacant District 16 seats in next year's Primary. The anticipated large group of candidates has led to a few declaring their candidacy more than a year before the June 2014 election. Many observers have said candidates will have to raise more than $100,000 to be competitive. Cooper, who served as a page in the General Assembly and then worked as a legislative aide after college, is charging $50 per and $30 for Young Democrats for the fundraiser. It will include Steve VanGrack, former Rockville mayor, Dr. Alan Cheung, former Board of Education member, and Rabbi Stuart Weinblatt, from Congregation Bnai Tzedek in Potomac. The subject of the discussion will be "Leadership & Good Governance in Montgomery County." "For me, good governance can be summed up in one word: Integrity," Cooper said. "Being whole in oneself, having one’s thoughts and behaviors in accord, fulfilling one’s responsibilities, and honoring one’s commitments are all hallmarks of leadership properly executed." Hrant Jamgochian is the only other District 16 candidate to formally announce his or her candidacy, though a number of others are expected to join the fray. The panel discussion starts at 8 p.m.
