Ilaya Hopkins Announces Campaign Kickoff (Updated)

Ilaya Hopkins, who announced her exploratory committee for the Council District 1 seat currently occupied by Roger Berliner last month, is now formally launching her campaign. We reproduce her kickoff announcement below.

Update: Hopkins's website is up and running.

It's Official - Ilaya Hopkins is Running for County Council!

Dear [Name of Voter],

Join us Saturday, March 6th as Ilaya launches her campaign for the County Council!

Ilaya has spent the past few months meeting with people from all across District 1 - from Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Friendship Heights to Potomac Village and North Bethesda. She's listened to friends, neighbors, community and business leaders and colleagues and has decided that we need strong leadership to move us forward. She is excited by this opportunity and looks forward to bringing everybody together to make District 1 the best it can be for our families and businesses.

Bring a friend. We'll need all the help we can gather to make this campaign a success. Bring future voters too - the kickoff will be kid-friendly.

When and Where

The campaign kickoff will be Saturday, March 6 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in downtown Bethesda at the PeriPoint Building, 5001 Wilson Lane, Bethesda's first LEED certified building.

A detailed invitation will follow. Please pass on word to friends, family and neighbors.

Thanks! See you on March 6th!
