“If you looked at my campaign literature from four years ago, it would probably be pretty similar,” Barve (D-Dist. 17) of Gaithersburg told Gazette.net. Barve has been a delegate since 1991 and Democratic majority leader since 2003. Barve said that if elected to another term, he plans to continue working on the same priorities, such as education and high-technology job creation, always in the context of balancing the budget on time.
“Montgomery County is well situated to benefit from the economy as it recovers, and the education system in the state of Maryland is still the best in the nation,” Barve said, “and we’ve done it all while maintaining a triple-A bond rating at the state level.”
