Navarro Lines Up Council Support in MoCo's District 4
Montgomery County Board of Education member Nancy Navarro picked up endorsements from four of eight council members this afternoon in her bid to fill the vacancy left by the death of council member Don Praisner in January.
Valerie Ervin (D-Silver Spring), Nancy Floreen (D-At Large), Michael Knapp (D-Upcounty) and George Leventhal (D-At Large) were joined by a diverse crowd of community leaders as they formally announced their support for Navarro in a courtyard outside the council building in Rockville.
The council members praised Navarro's experience grappling with tough budget issues on the school board and said she reflects the diversity of the eastern county district she seeks to represent.
Navarro is one of six Democrats and three Republicans competing in special election primary contests set for April 21.
Still unknown is whether the other four council members will line up behind one of her rivals. County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) is a close ally of the family of Del. Benjamin Kramer (D), but he has not publicly stated his preference in the contest.
