A strong challenger worthy of support is “Vanessa Atterbeary, an attorney who serves on the Montgomery County Commission for Women” a “Purple Line supporter[s]” and is “better attuned to the district’s mix of affluent and working-class residents.”
Washington Post, August 23, 2010
“I am pleased to endorse Vanessa Atterbeary for the House of Delegates. Her dedication to the community is unmatched, her leadership is inspiring, and her drive to ensure a better future for all residents of District 18 is tireless.” More

Thank you for all of the well wishes and words of support. The past 5 months have been challenging and exciting. The campaign went from being unknown in May to receiving numerous endorsements including the endorsement of the Washington Post. It was a joy meeting over 16K residents in District 18 and hearing their concerns and I’d like them to know that I will continue to work to make D18 and Montgomery County a better place for all of its residents.
I thank my family for their undying support; my staff, a true reflection of Montgomery County’s diversity; the many volunteers who took time from their busy lives to help the campaign; and my friends for supporting me through this process. There is much to celebrate.
As I said in the beginning, “This campaign isn’t about me, it’s about you.” President Clinton didn’t win his first election and, yes, even President Barack Obama sustained a loss. So, as they say…until we meet again…
Thank you to the Montgomery County Small Business PAC for endorsing my candidacy for the Maryland House of Delegates for District 18! I am committed to creating Montgomery County and Maryland a “welcome” home for small businesses.
Thank you to GGW for the endorsement and recognizing my commitment to marquee transportation issues: the Purple Line, funding Metro and MARC, widening I-270, and the Intercounty Connector (ICC).
