Traditionally and importantly, Carroll’s elected officials have held fundraisers and events to keep those people involved, and to prepare for campaigns. Del. April Rose is one of them. “I think it’s a great way to meet with supporters and constituents to talk about current issues, and in my case, the upcoming session,” she explained to me. “It also truly has become a fun night to connect with friends, new friends and family. So many people you meet while in office and campaigning become great lifelong friends.” Delegate Rose’s perspective is well-taken: she, and our other elected figures, have always looked to that very human reason to serve and be involved.
