BALTIMORE REGION—Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives representing Maryland’s 7th Congressional District, will launch her “Truth and Solutions” tour on Tuesday, March 10 at 10:00 a.m. at the Easterwood Recreation Center in Baltimore. The candidate will share her vision for community development and revitalization, and shine a light on the promise and potential of young people who live in the Freddy Gray neighborhood.
“I’m running for Congress because the status quo will not cut it,” said Cummings. “Across the nation, our communities and our children are under attack. Nowhere is that more true than here in Baltimore. Our children deserve better and we must take action. We need bold solutions from a leader who is unafraid to fight. The time is now to tell the truth about the urgent need in urban communities, and to offer solutions that put our people first.”
Cummings will be joined by Marvin “Doc” Cheatham, Sr., a community activist and local leader who is working to improve the Easterwood Recreation Center and offer young people a positive, safe environment for extracurricular activities and recreation. Cheatham is president of the Matthew Henson Community Development Corporation in Baltimore.
