Former County Executive Doug Duncan Denounces Lenett Attacks - Endorses Manno for State Senate

Silver Spring - This afternoon, former 3-term County Executive Doug Duncan released the following statement denouncing Mike Lenett's personal attacks, and endorsing Roger Manno for State Senate:

“In these very difficult economic times, we need leaders who will focus on the challenges ahead and put personal pettiness behind them. Roger Manno is working hard to bring District 19 together for the good of the community, while his opponent has resorted to attempted character assassination in this campaign. Mike Lenett's recent personal attacks on Roger Manno, his wife and family are never called for in an election. Today, I am asking District 19 voters to stand up and say no to this type of offensive politics and vote for Roger Manno for State Senate.”

Roger Manno commented that “I am humbled and honored to receive the endorsement of former County Executive Doug Duncan. In addition, I am touched that the community has come together in such a strong and vocal way to support our candidacy, and to condemn Mike Lenett’s mean-spirited and false attacks.”
