About Brandon Barrett

I live in Germantown with my family and work as a Data Analyst for a Clinical Research Organization. Growing up in Southern Virginia and moving to Montgomery County, MD after college, my own beliefs were greatly influenced by different environments over time. Like many, I have also felt the impact of our increased polarization on family dynamics. Through these experiences, I’ve recognized the importance of having unique perspectives, respecting others’ differences, and in finding common ground. I am very concerned that our country will become even more divided under two-party control, which I think perpetuates false binary choices of “Left vs. Right” leading to dangerous division. I am hopeful, though, that a path is being built towards a viable multi-party system as logical reforms are enacted throughout our states to improve primary elections and voting methods. I was immediately drawn to the Forward Party with its focus on supporting innovative reforms and its commitment to grace & tolerance and diverse thinking. I am grateful for the opportunity to help build the Forward Party in Maryland, and for being part of a growing movement dedicated to expanding political voice and helping communities thrive.

    Potential Affiliates attend Leadership Summit

    On Wednesday, the Maryland Forward Party hosted a virtual Leadership Summit with three committed Forward affiliates and six potential affiliates.  This was a very inspiring session as each candidate shared their story and we heard clear examples of why we need to improve our political culture.  This summit proved that more candidates in Maryland align with Forward's values, support election reforms, and are willing to be part of the solution.
