Candidates in our Backyard 2022

Candidates are in our backyard September 29.
Join the Greater Catonsville Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Arbutus Business Association, and UMBC’s Center for Democracy and Civic Life, Graduate Student Association, and Student Government Association for Candidates in Our Backyard. This community forum will bring together candidates for office in Legislative Districts 44 A/B and 10 and County Council District 1, campus and community groups, and neighbors for some old-fashioned, face-to-face talk about the future we imagine for our communities. The event will include:
    • Informal conversations with candidates for Baltimore County Council District 1 and Legislative Districts 44 A/B and 10.
    • Opportunities to connect with organizations building community on campus and in southwestern Baltimore County.
