Michael Meadows, Language Teacher, Maryland Public Schools

“Alice is a shining example of good government service. Having worked with her in US Senate, I know Alice to be intelligent, authentic, reasonable, and dedicated. She’s one of the hardest-working and most generous people I’ve encountered. Our nation needs more public servants like Alice Cain and I’m am honored to endorse her campaign.”
