Here at African American Reports we have reached out to African American candidates involved in state primaries tomorrow, 06/24/2014.
One candidate is running for Attorney General of Maryland. Her name is Aisha Braveboy. Here is a brief statement from Aisha Braveboy as to African American Reports as to why Maryland voters should support her.
If elected, Aisha would be the first African American Attorney General in Maryland history, the second black woman in U.S. history to serve as a state attorney general and only the 4th black person in U.S. history to serve as a state attorney general. Read a statement from Aisha Braveboy explaining to voters why they should vote for her.
Voters should vote for me because of my unique policy focus and record of independence. Preserving wealth and economic opportunity will be the top priorities of my administration as Maryland Attorney General. The two largest sources of wealth for Maryland families are their jobs and their homes. I will prioritize enforcing our wage laws so that women receive equal pay for equal work and will protect home values in communities affected by foreclosure by targeting mortgage companies that engage in illegal housing practices. I am independent and would do what is right regardless of the political consequences. For example, a federal judge recently ruled that Maryland was committing discrimination against its historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in violation of the U.S. Constitution. As Attorney General, I would not defend the state while it is committing discrimination against Maryland’s HBCUs.
