Never Seen Anything Like It

"I've never seen anything like it," said Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele when asked about Action In Montgomery (AIM)* in a Washington Post article last month. Steele, who attended a recent AIM action along with Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan, continued, "They can get politicians to stand at attention, to pay attention, to be responsive, to account for their actions."

The lengthy article, by Post staff writer Cameron Barr, takes an in-depth look at AIM's broad-based organizing efforts in the county and its impact in local politics. Good stuff - check it out!

*Full disclosure: As I've previously mentioned, I have been an active leader in AIM since its founding. I currently serve as Co-Chair of the organization.
