Marissa Valeri running for Rockville City Council

Montgomery County native and Rockville community leader Marissa Valeri is running for a seat on the Rockville City Council in this November's election. Valeri's campaign said in a statement that she is the only Council candidate from the east side of Rockville Pike to declare their candidacy so far. The filing deadline for submitting a nominating petition is September 8, 2023.

Valeri is a resident of Twinbrook, which hasn't had a representative on the Council in 16 years. She has served as the president of the Twinbrook Community Association in the past. Valeri highlighted that and other service positions on her resume to several dozen supporters at a campaign launch event. In addition to working in the nonprofit sector for over 25 years, she has served on the most recent City of Rockville Charter Review Commission, and is a co-founder of the Rockville Pedestrian Advisory Committee.

This will be the second City election in which you will have the option to vote by mail. Ballots will be mailed to every registered voter in the City of Rockville on or before October 13, 2023. Return your postage-paid ballot by mail by 8:00 PM on November 7, 2023. You can also drop your ballot off in the dropboxes located in the parking lot of City Hall or Montrose Community Center. And there will be two places to vote in-person on Election Day, November 7, 2023: Rockville City Hall and the Thomas Farm Community Center.
