To: JobsthatareLEFT

Paid and unpaid positions available on local District County Council race in Montgomery County, MD. Field Director, Canvass Organizers needed. Contact Heather Mills, Campaign Manager, at [email withheld] for more information.
Heather Mills is, of course, Council Member Roger Berliner's campaign manager.

In our overview of the District 1 race, we concluded that Roger Berliner was the favorite but challenger Ilaya Hopkins had a chance. The fact that Berliner is hiring people while Hopkins is just getting started is a useful reminder of exactly why Berliner is favored. First, he is the incumbent. Second, he has lots of money. Third, this will be the third time he has run in District 1, so he knows the local players better than almost any challenger would. And fourth, he is anything but complacent.
