According to Maryland gubernatorial candidate Alec Ross’s website (and reported earlier this morning by Bethesda Beat), he has chosen Denizen’s co-owner Julie Verratti as his lieutenant governor in the upcoming election.

Alec Ross will be involved in the democratic primary this June along with Rushern Baker (Prince George’s County Executive), Ben Jealous (former NAACP President), Kevin Kamenetz (Baltimore County Executive), Richard Madaleno (State Senator D-Kensington), James Shea (Baltimore attorney), and Krishanti Vignarajah (former Michelle Obama aide).

Verratti, a MoCo native, has never been elected to public office. In the past, she has supported a bill that allows for the refinancing of student loans for Montgomery County residents. She would like to provide incentives for young workers to live in MoCo, as well as encourage businesses to start and grow here.
