Doug Duncan endorses Adam Van Grack for Rockville City Council

Former Rockville mayor and Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan has endorsed Adam Van Grack in the Rockville City Council race. Van Grack's campaign announced the endorsement yesterday, alongside endorsements from former Rockville City Councilmember John Britton and former District 17 State Senator Mary Boergers. This brings Van Grack's endorsement haul from current and former elected officials to fourteen.

"Like me, Adam Van Grack was raised in Rockville and has been an active member in our community," Duncan said in a statement Tuesday. "I am proud to support him for City Council and I know that he will be an excellent City Councilmember for all of Rockville." It's an ironic twist, as Duncan defeated Van Grack's father, former Rockville Mayor Steven Van Grack, in the contentious 1987 Rockville mayoral race. Duncan went on to become one of the biggest power players in Montgomery County political history, serving as County Executive from 1994 to 2006.

"As we continue to get our message out, I'm humbled and excited that respected leaders are stepping up to support us," Adam Van Grack said Tuesday. "Former County Executive Doug Duncan, former Councilmember John Britton, and former State Senator Mary Boergers have all demonstrated what it means to be effective public servants and community leaders—and I’m proud to have their endorsements."
