The League of Women Voters of Maryland, in partnership with The Reginald F. Lewis Museum, is pleased to put on a candidate forum this coming Monday, October 3rd, at 6:00 PM, to which all candidates have been invited.
On September 7th, our partners sent an invitation via email to Delegate Dan Cox, inviting him to participate in the candidate forum. On September 14th, an email was received from a staffer declining the invitation citing a prior commitment and stating if another opportunity arises, please make Delegate Cox aware.
Delegate Cox, as well as all other candidates running for Governor, have been invited to another Gubernatorial forum hosted by LWVMD and our partners on October 13th. While all candidates have been invited, and Delegate Cox has accepted the invitation, not all candidates will be present Wes Moore has declined.
The League was very troubled by various Facebook posts that claimed we did not invite Cox to participate. Deliberate attempts to spread misinformation and untruths are disturbing to an organization whose mission is to Empower Voters and Defend Democracy.
If candidates who have previously declined our invitations would like to participate, please reach out to us; we are more than willing to accommodate per the League’s mission.
