BETHESDA, MARYLAND -- Daniel Vovak, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive, has announced that his campaign will officially begin on Friday, September 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Stromboli Family Restaurant, located at 7023 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda. The suggested minimum donation is $25, with metered parking available at the back of the building.
Vovak says, "I've been doing a little campaigning for the last few months, yet my priority was to ghostwrite books for two clients: one about a woman pirate and the other a true, light-hearted story about a woman in the CIA. Now that the League of Women Voters has issued its voter guide, I can shift my priorities to meet more residents and focus on changing Montgomery County, thereby keeping our taxes lower."
Vovak has also re-launched his website, now under the name www.ChangeMontgomery.com. The website includes sections that reflect Vovak's commitment to "work with Democrats rather than against them," his support for The Purple Line, his desire to balance the budget, and his promise to keep taxes under control so people "Won't be taxed so high that they are forced to leave Maryland." Vovak also highlights an article from The Washington Post that named him a "Power Player," along with President Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber, and Ronald Reagan. His opponent in November will be Ike Leggett, the longest-serving politician among all on the county council. He added that his party will probably be the last major political event for any candidate in Montgomery County.
