On Wednesday, April 25 in Columbia, Byron was endorsed for re-election by the Thurgood Marshall Democratic Club.
“I’m proud to be endorsed for re-election by the Thurgood Marshall Democratic Club. Justice Marshall was a legal giant and pioneer who had inspired so many Americans to fight for equality and justice. As Register of Wills, I rescinded discriminatory policies enacted by my Republican predecessor. I’m the first Register of Wills in Howard County history to hire people of color as deputies and auditors. I was the first and only courthouse official to call for the removal of the Confederate monument from the courthouse grounds in 2017. And I ensure that every person who comes to my office for help is treated equally, with care, dignity, and respect. I pledge to continue this tradition in another term.”
The Thurgood Marshall Democratic Club was established in 2011 to promote the political empowerment and advancement of people of color in Howard County, Maryland.
