District 16 House of Delegates candidate Marc Korman on Monday announced a new batch of endorsements that includes a number of nearby state legislators, a pair of County Councilmembers and Attorney General Doug Gansler.

Korman, an attorney and longtime local Democratic Party organizer, has pointed to Metro and school construction as two priorities. In July, he announced a list of almost 100 local supporters. Korman is serving as chair of the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board and is the secretary of the Bethesda Urban Partnership Board of Directors.

Councilmembers Hans Riemer (D-At large) and Craig Rice (D-Upcounty) both pledged their support for Korman.

“Residents often do not draw a line between issues of county or state responsibility; Marc’s ability to work collaboratively and find solutions will bring valuable experience to Annapolis,” Riemer said in a prepared statement. “Marc has been a leader on transportation and environmental issues, increasingly important issues not only in his district, but to the County as a whole.”

State Sen. Nancy King (D-39-Gaithersburg) also endorsed Korman.

“I have known Marc for many years through his work on the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee, an important responsibility he has always taken seriously and performed admirably,” King said. “When a controversy or issue arises, Marc is always quick to gather the facts, talk to stakeholders, and help broker pragmatic solutions. Those are important skills that will serve Marc well in the legislature.”


East County Delegate Anne Kaiser, who is chair of the Montgomery County Delegation endorsed Korman. So did Delegates Charles Barkley (D-39), Kirill Reznik (D-39), Kathleen Dumais (D-15), Aruna Miller (D-15) and Eric Luedtke (D-14). State Senator Brian Feldman (D-15) and Gansler are also among the roughly 30 officials, community leaders and Democratic activists on Korman’s “Honorary Committee.”
