Ashanti Martinez for Maryland House of Delegates

Why I'm running

I decided to run because our community deserves New Energy, Committed Leadership, and Bold Progressive policy in Annapolis.

Throughout my career I've consistently stood for change, from creating the LGBTQ Student Liaison for the Prince George’s County Regional Association of Student Governments, to working alongside fellow progressives like Rep. Elijah Cummings, Rep. Steny Hoyer and Del.  Joseline Peña-Melnyk.

New Energy is what I bring to District 22. I was raised in New Carrollton, attended school at St. Mary's Landover Hills, and graduated from Parkdale High School. I know the challenges and triumphs our community has faced. Together we can grow further because change happens from the ground up, not the top down. 

District 22 deserves Committed Leadership in Annapolis that is willing to listen to our communities diverse group of stakeholders and work alongside with them to create solutions.

We need more leaders that share our values. For far too long, far too many of our families haven't been able to get ahead. It's time our community sends someone to Annapolis that'll always have our back. A Leader who will fight for Bold Progressive policy that helps elevate Maryland's working families.

I can't do this alone. Will you join me on the trail?
