Bethesda Resident Kicks Off Campaign for Maryland State Delegate
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Naval Academy grad, business attorney champions education, jobs and teamwork
We can only move ahead by teamwork and partnership. That's the way our democracy works, and the way that our economic system flourishes Bill Day.
BETHESDA, MD: Bethesda resident Bill Day, 45, kicked off his campaign for Maryland state delegate at a back-yard get-together attended by more than 70 friends and supporters.
Day is a self-employed local attorney, who specializes in business law. He is also a Bethesda children’s soccer coach, U.S. Naval Academy graduate (Class of 1995) and former active-duty Naval Officer who served at the Pentagon. As a Bethesda father with three children in local schools and a wife with a professional career, he is experienced with challenges of raising a family in Bethesda.
Day stated that those experiences make him especially qualified to tackle the job of improving business environment, schools and livelihood of Bethesda families. "I know the Montgomery County's business community well. I am a business-owner. My clients are business owners. I am concerned about the economic climate in our county. Our county government does not make it easy to create jobs. We need to incentivize new businesses to start here and reward companies who stay here. I want to help do for Montgomery County what Governor Hogan has done for the state of Maryland – open it for business.”
Day pointed out that “The biggest part of any officer's job is to bring people together, to build teams, who work together for a common goal. That is the respectful bipartisanship we need in the General Assembly."
Bill Day, the sole Republican nominee for 16th District delegate, sees firsthand the incivility and polarization of current-day politics. He admires the leadership style of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan who is inclusive and works with both parties to get solve problems. "Governor Hogan is my role model. He listens. He reaches out. He builds teams. And it works -- Look how successful he has been."
Day also told the bipartisan crowd that residents know what issues are important to their lives and they want to be heard, not dictated to, by their elected officials. “The overwhelming vote for term limits in Montgomery County shows that our residents want new faces and competent government. The dominance of one party is harmful to the welfare of residents. Look at how many voters register as Unaffiliated. I will work to bring commonsense to the Montgomery County delegation so that the real concerns of Bethesda residents are heard in Annapolis. I will be your independent voice in Annapolis.”
Overall, Day explained: "I have a common-sense approach to representing Bethesda. My views come from my middle-class upbringing, my military service, and my family life. You can brand me as a regular guy -- I attended law school at night, while working a full-time job. I coach my kids' soccer team, and I feel honored to call Montgomery County my home.”
