Marilyn Balcombe Announces Candidacy for Montgomery County Council (District 2)

Marilyn Balcombe of Germantown, the president and CEO of the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce, announced that she will run for Montgomery County Council (District 2) in 2022.

Balcombe previously ran for an at-large seat in the county council back in 2018, placing 5th out of 33 candidates– the 4 candidates with the most votes were elected to the council.

This year the number of county council seats will increase from 9 to 11, as a result of the 2020 ballot initiative. 4 at-large seats will remain with 2 districts being added to the current 5. Due to existing term limits, 5 of the 11 seats will be up for grabs including District 2, which is currently being represented by Councilmember Craig Rice.

Currently, District 2 consists of Barnesville, Boyds, Clarksburg, Damascus, Darnestown, Germantown, Goshen, and Montgomery Village.

She will host an official campaign launch virtually on May 2nd.
