Looking for Bloggers

We're looking for more people who would like to join the Maryland Politics Watch team. Virtually all of us live in District 18, so we are especially interested in people from other parts of Montgomery County so we can expand our geographic coverage. Diversity is always welcome with one exception: you have to be a Democrat. Of course, Democrats are often an eclectic, fractious bunch so a range of views is welcome.

One key goal of MPW has been to provide original coverage of events from official meetings of municipal and county government to Democratic political events to Purple Line open houses. Another has been to provide a public forum for Democrats to present their ideas and to communicate with each other. Finally, we try to take a slightly more analytical approach. Want to explain what is great or awful about the County's growth policy? the State's recent special session? This is the place.

Finally, I can enjoy a good snarky quip as much as the next person but there is a tremendous amount of snark on the internet already. Still, a good sense of humor helps.

It's a lot easier than you think. Guest blogs are also welcome. If you're interested, contact me at lublin.david at Thanks.
