Sign outside Mayor and Council debate
in October 2013
The 2015 election is underway in Rockville, as Brigitta Mullican has announced she is running for a City Council seat. Mullican, a retired budget analyst with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has run for the council and for the office of Mayor in the past. 

The Twinbrook resident has been very active in the city, serving as a Planning Commissioner, past president of the Twinbrook Civic Association, and most recently, as President of the Rockville Sister City Corporation.

Mullican's campaign has a Facebook page.

Winners of this year's election will be the first in Rockville history to serve 4-year terms, following a a charter amendment by the current Mayor and Council last July.

If you are interested in running for Mayor or a Council seat, a Candidate Information Packet is available now on the city's website. 

Candidates running who have press releases can send them throughout the campaign to Rockville Nights by email to robert1999 [at] hotmail [dot] com.

The filing deadline to run is Friday, September 4, 2015.


  1. Just what we need, an argumentative and self-righteous champion of developer's interests. If she wins it will be good for your blog--we can expect lots more fast food retailers and big box stores to take a shot at developing the pike.

  2. Dear Mr. Anonymous,
    Thank you for your comment. I appreciate your feedback. Please be advised that the City of Rockville does not allow big box stores larger than 65,000 square feet. A text amendment was approved in 2000 to not allow a big box to be built at Congressional South.

  3. It is biased to promote only one candidate.

    1. At the time this article was written, Brigitta Mullican was the only certified candidate. I gave an email address in this article where any other official or unofficial candidate could submit a press release or announcement, and they will receive the same coverage on this site.

  4. Ms. Mullican opposes removing the Confederate statue next to the court house and compares retaining it to maintaining remembrances of Nazi soldiers in German cemeteries.
