According to the Montgomery County Gazette, UDC David A. Clarke School of Law alumna, Neda Bolourian, '10, is running as a Democrat for a position on the Montgomery County, Maryland Council.
The Gazette writes:
"Bolourian, an attorney who works in Bethesda, said she has always been interested in public policy.
"I adore politics, but mostly I’ve always been interested in public service,” she said.
She said she was partly motivated to run by the income disparity in Montgomery County.
While she was in law school at the University of the District of Columbia, she worked with low-income people at a variety of clinics.
She sees lots of her friends in the county working multiple jobs and still barely getting by, she said.
Bolourian was also motivated by the council’s decision to approve a pay increase for the council seated in 2014, which she said was troubling given the current economic situation in the county.
A native of Damascus who attended Damascus High School, Bolourian would also like to focus on addressing mental health and substance abuse issues, the possibility of lowering income and property taxes, finding more funding for no-kill animal shelters."For the full story, see GAZETTE
