Early voting has begun for the June 24 primary election. School is ending, summer vacations are starting and voter turnout is predicted to be low.

As a busy mom, I am happy to have had the opportunity to vote early, and to vote for Wendy Royalty to represent District 1 on the Howard County Council. She is exactly the person we need to represent our community.

Wendy is an engaged parent with two kids in the public schools and a lifelong history of community activism and she is ready to represent us, our families and our communities.

Wendy is just like us: A mother, wife, daughter, friend and engaged citizen — truly a person who makes a difference.

Let's have a say in our local leadership. I encourage citizens to vote early and vote for Wendy.
