As we evaluate our choices for District 1 in the coming election, the actions of Harris’ opponent, Jesse Colvin, stand in vivid contrast. When former Army Ranger Colvin was asked to look into an alleged sexual assault in the ranks, he sought the counsel of leadership and experts to ensure his response was thorough and appropriate. After winning the primary, he invited his opponent Alison Galbraith to join his team as a subject matter expert on women’s issues, among others. He recently attended Havre de Grace’s “Out of the Darkness” event, demonstrating awareness and respect for those affected by mental health crises. (He was also in Hampstead and Manchester this week, recognizing that District 1 is more than the Eastern Shore.) Based on their words and actions, Colvin rises above Rep. Harris as a representative for both sexes who is willing to listen to women and men. I hope women (and those who love them) take note in November.
