Press Releases You Don't Need to Read

We have nothing against District 19 Delegate candidate Hoan Dang, but he has sent out one of the most inane press releases of the entire election cycle. Because it was emailed, at least no trees were sacrificed for the purpose of such banality. Enjoy!

For Immediate Release: Sunday, July 25, 2010

State Delegate Candidate Hoan Dang Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Boy Scouts

Dang to Participate in Historic Boy Scouts Parade in Washington, D.C.

SILVER SPRING, Md. (July 25, 2010) – Maryland state delegate candidate (District 19) and Eagle Scout Hoan Dang is very pleased to announce he will join nearly 10,000 members of Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in a historic parade in the nation’s capital to celebrate the Boy Scouts’ 100th anniversary. Dang will march in the Eagle Scout division, which will serve as “the exclamation point of the parade, showcasing the epitome of the Boy Scouts of America,” according to the organizers.

The BSA Grand Centennial Parade will take place from 7th to 17th Streets on Constitution Avenue starting at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 25, 2010.

Dang, an Eagle Scout of Montgomery County, credits his scouting experience with helping him shape a lifelong commitment to citizenship, service and leadership. Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the boy scouts program.

“I am thrilled to take part in this momentous event with thousands of scouts from across the country in honor of the Boy Scouts’ centennial anniversary,” Dang said. “For 100 years, the boy scouts program has helped change countless of young lives, turning them into responsible and healthy leaders of tomorrow. I am delighted to reunite with fellow Eagle Scouts in this historic parade to celebrate and express our longstanding support for the program and its mission. As the saying goes, once an Eagle, always an Eagle.”

Dang immigrated as a child with his parents and sisters to the United States from Vietnam in 1975. While rebuilding a new life, Dang joined the Boy Scouts and accomplished service and leadership projects in his community to attain the highest ranking of Eagle Scout. Dang also helped establish and served as the first Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 1794, a brand new troop that has spawned eight additional units in Maryland.

Dang, a compliance officer with a Fortune 500 firm and former engineer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), holds a lifelong passion to help and serve others – a commitment he has actively demonstrated for over the past two decades as a resident of Montgomery County. He has led dozens of community-based initiatives and charity projects that focus on improving the region’s multicultural community.
