Tonight: 600+ Voters, 30+ Candidates

Just an FYI for interested MoCo political junkies -

Action In Montgomery (AIM), a local community organizing group, will hold an "accountability action" this evening. AIM expects over 600 politically active people to turn out for the event, along with nearly every candidate for Montgomery County Executive and County Council.

AIM will present its 2006 Issue Agenda (Sprawling Towards Montgomery outlined it earlier this month) and each candidate will have the opportunity to voice their support or opposition to the proposals. AIM leaders will also detail and launch a large nonpartisan get-out-the-vote effort targeting historically low-voting precincts in the county.

The AIM event will take place this evening, 7:15-9:00pm, at the University of Maryland Shady Grove campus. I plan to be there, and may even do some live-blogging if they have wifi available. Should be a fun evening!

[Disclosure: As I've mentioned many times, I am a former Co-Chair of AIM.]
