Korman Puts His Hat In The Ring For District 16 Delegate


Marc Korman, a lawyer and longtime local Democratic Party organizer, is the third candidate to announce a campaign for what's expected to be two vacant District 16 Delegate seats in next June's Primary. Korman has been a member of the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee since 2007 and is the chairman of the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board. The 31-year-old practices communications law for D.C.-based Sidley Austin and is on the Board of Directors for the Bethesda Urban Partnership. Long rumored to be in the race, Korman recently introduced a campaign website. He said he plans to file later this month. One issue Korman said he'll pursue is Metro. He proposed a three-point plan for improving Metro service that includes more oversight of operations funding from the state of Maryland, projects to improve the aesthetics of Metro stations (similar to the Bethesda group that lobbied WMATA to pick Bethesda for its "Station of the Future" pilot) and establishing a dedicated funding source for the system. Korman joins Hrant Jamgochian, who narrowly lost out on a District 16 seat in the 2010 Primary, and Jordan Cooper, a newcomer with a background in healthcare policy, as the three candidates so far to have announced campaigns. Some are predicting as many as 15 or 20 will challenge for the seats left by Del. Susan Lee, expected to be seeking Sen. Brian Frosh's seat, and Del. Bill Frick, expected to challenge Frosh for the Maryland Attorney General seat. Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler, of Bethesda, is expected to run for governor. Photo via MarcKorman.com
