Maryland NOW PAC
Maryland NOW’s Political Action Committee or PAC has been in existence since the early 1980s. Our work is here in Maryland at the state level – our General Assembly and Senate, and our Governor’s race. We do on occasion make endorsements in county or judicial races in the state.
Our PAC is made up of a representative from each of our member chapters. We send out questionnaires to candidates and review their answers when making an endorsement. We also make recommendations to our National NOW organization’s PAC in Congressional or US Senate races where they can make endorsements.
The Maryland NOW PAC is working to position itself – in addition to giving candidates our endorsement – to be able to make financial contributions to their campaigns as well. While that work is primarily in Maryland’s election cycle every four years, we also need money every year to participate in funding for candidate training, partisan political work during Maryland’s legislative session, and events making more visibility for our PAC possible.
Please help us if you can!
The General Assembly of Maryland, as the legislative body directly representing the electorate, passes public general and public local laws, raises revenues and appropriates funds to pay for State government services, and oversees the operation of State executive agencies. In much of this activity, the legislator plays a major role in helping to develop the public policy of the State.
Volunteers are vital to the work of Maryland NOW, and are involved in almost all aspects of the chapter's functioning.
