Brooke Lierman, a civil rights lawyer who lives in Fells Point, has announced her candidacy to run for a House of Delegates seat in the 46th district, which represents South Baltimore.
Lierman, a 34-year-old Democrat, is an associate with the firm Brown, Goldstein & Levy. She's been active on liquor board, environmental and transportation issues.
"I'm running for state delegate because I love Baltimore, and I think it can be better," she said. "After being involved at the street level for a few years now, I want to do more to move the city forward in the right direction."
The 46th District is currently represented by three Democrats: Luke Clippinger, Peter A. Hammen and Brian K. McHale.
Lierman said she isn't targeting any specific candidate.
"I am just asking for one of three votes," she said.
She said she's been speaking recently at house parties and community meetings in throughout South Baltimore.
