The Annual Reception in honor of Councilman Isaac “Yitzy” Schleifer was jam packed with political star power.
The brightest star in the room however, was Maryland’s biggest political star, Governor-Elect Wes Moore. Not only was it impressive for the Governor-Elect to choose Councilman Schleifer’s event as his very first post-election appearance in our community, but it was his respect and endorsement of Councilman Schleifer that truly resonated with the large crowd of enthusiastic supporters. Governor-Elect Moore thanked the Councilman, and stated it was an “honor to stand here in partnership with someone I know I will need, lean on and listen to”.
He went on to state, “we have remarkable leaders who will not accept anything less than us being able to fight to ensure that all our families, all our children all our communities are seen and heard”.
Finally, the words that ignited the audience was when the Governor-Elect finished his comments and introduced “our councilman, our leader…Councilman Yitzy Schleifer”.
