Invitation to Beilenson event in East Columbia on Aug. 29

Here's an invitation from Ken and Chris Crandell, who I know as friends, to an event at their East Columbia residence on behalf of congressional candidate Peter Beilenson, who is involved in a highly competitive congressional primary with such others as a fellow who has great name recognition (John Sarbanes), a State Senator and chair of an important committee in Annapolis (Paula Hollinger), and a former familiar fame on Baltimore TV (Andy Barth). Come on out and meet Dr. Beilenson. I can affirm that you can't go wrong with any food provided by Chris.

We are pleased to invite you to a reception for Dr. Peter Beilenson, who we believe is the best candidate seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for Maryland’s Third Congressional District (Ben Cardin’s seat). The reception (including Chris’ hors d’oeuvres!) will take place on Tuesday, August 29th from 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM at 9111 Brunners Run Court, Columbia, MD 21045. You will have an opportunity to meet Peter face to face, hear him speak about key issues and then ask questions. (Peter will also be at the candidate forum at OBIC at 7:00 PM immediately following our reception.)

For thirteen years, Peter served as the Commissioner of Health for Baltimore City. During his tenure, Baltimore gained national recognition for its progressive health care programs. As Commissioner, Peter was an innovator who implemented new solutions to juvenile violence and homicide, promoted safe affordable housing, and succeeded in reforming the child welfare and social systems. In 1999 Baltimore Magazine honored Peter by naming him “Best Civil Servant”.

We believe that Peter’s character, education, background, experience and leadership make him the best candidate for this Congressional seat. In Congress, Peter will bring the intelligence, compassion and commitment to public service that served the people of Baltimore so well. He will continue his campaign to provide healthcare coverage for all and protect children from violence, as well as improve our homeland security. He will also be a strong voice for a cleaner environment and greater fiscal responsibility.

If, after the Q&A, you are interested in supporting Peter, we will describe a few specific opportunities to volunteer and/or donate to his campaign.

In order to plan for hors d’oeuvres and drinks, we would really appreciate it if you could let us know quickly whether you accept or decline. Please either call 410-997-4611 or email to RSVP.

We are proud to be able to introduce Peter to our friends and neighbors, and look forward to seeing you on the 29th!


Ken and Chris Crandell
