MD Juice Society Pages: Photos & Videos from Events w/ MoCo Young Dems, Jubilee, American Constitution Society & More!

Maryland Juice recently checked out a few events around the region and bumped into a number of politicos. Below you can view some photos and videos from our explorations.


This year Maryland Juice discovered that the annual Jubilee Roast is apparently the place to be. Indeed, we bumped into numerous politicos at this year's roast of Somerset Mayor Jeffrey Slavin. Councilmember Valerie Ervin, Attorney General Doug Gansler, and Lt. Governor Anthony Brown roasted Mr. Slavin to help raise funds for Jubilee's programs for the developmentally disabled. Below you can view thumbnails from our photo gallery, but we encourage you to check out the full-size photos at Maryland Juice's Facebook Page.

ANTHONY BROWN TEASES DOUG GANSLER: We also provide two videos from the Jubilee Roast. The first video features Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown commenting on a potential running-mate from Montgomery County. Mr. Brown also pokes fun at Attorney General Doug Gansler in the clip below:

COUNCILMEMBER VALERIE ERVIN ROASTS JEFFREY SLAVIN: The second video is a small clip from County Councilmember Valerie Ervin's roast of Jeffrey Slavin:

Last month, Maryland Juice had the privilege of speaking on a panel with Center Maryland's Josh Kurtz and WTOP's Kate Ryan. The Montgomery County Young Democrats invited us to come and discuss local politics. Democrats of all ages came out for the event, including a number of elected officials -- and even CD6 GOP candidate Robin Ficker. The Young Dems published a number of photos on their Facebook page, but we hijacked a few of them below:

Last night, Maryland Juice dropped in on the American Constitution Society's Montgomery County launch. We only snapped a couple of photos at this event, since we arrived at the tail end of the program. But we were told a few politicos dropped in to support the group's advocacy of liberal legal principles, including State Senators Brian Frosh & Jamie Raskin, Delegates Bill Frick, Brian Feldman & Jeff Waldstreicher, and Gaithersburg Councilmember Ryan Spiegel.

Maryland Juice checked out the Sweetlife music and food festival at HoCo's Merriweather Post Pavilion last weekend. I was there mainly to hear an excellent instrumental rock band called Explosions in the Sky. But amazingly, in the crowd of thousands, a former aide to State Senator Rob Garagiola spotted me, and so I got to chat a bit of politics at the festival. I'm still amazed he spotted me, given the mob-like atmosphere (see my photo below):

Maryland politicos are everywhere, apparently! Even at HoCo music festivals.
