Erek Barron Receives Washington Post Endorsement in Run for State Delegate

Date: June 9, 2014

Erek Barron is running for State Delegate in District 24 of Prince George’s County, Maryland. He has received the endorsement of the Washington Post, which said:

DISTRICT 24:  In the House race, two capable incumbents, Carolyn J.B. Howard and Michael L. Vaughn, are up for reelection. But the competition for the district’s third slot is among the hottest in Prince George’s County. Tiffany Alston, running again this year, used to represent the district until her 2012 conviction for theft and misconduct in office. Her appointed replacement, Darren M. Swain, has been embroiled in a scandal of his own involving an incident last year in which he allegedly used drugs with a group of teenagers and sexually solicited one of them, charges he has denied. Among their numerous challengers — notably including businessman Greg Hall, an appealing candidate who has overcome a troubled childhood — we support Erek Barron, a lawyer with a long history of public service. Mr. Barron would bring experience, savvy and a laudable focus on criminal justice matters to the legislature.
