This page of the firm's website is provided as an informational service. The listing of a fundraising event on this page is not an endorsement of or a solicitation of funds by the firm, its regulated lobbyists, or any of the firm's clients, for any of the elected officials or candidates listed below.

Maryland law prohibits regulated lobbyists from soliciting or transmitting political contributions from any person and from forwarding tickets to fundraising activities to any potential contributor (Md. Code Ann., State Gov't §15-714). The firm posts any fundraising information it receives from the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Comptroller, Attorney General, Members of the General Assembly, or candidates for any of those offices, on this page.

Note: We have moved our past fundraisers to their own page.
