“David Blair understands the urgency of addressing climate change and is running a campaign dedicated to action. He has a bold, achievable vision for Montgomery County where we grow public transit, support walkable and bikeable communities, emphasize smart growth and jobs in Montgomery County, and do our part to contribute to Maryland’s transformation to relying on clean energy located in-state.”
Former County Councilmember, Board of Education Member, Gubernatorial Candidate
“I know that David Blair not only is the nicest human being you’ll ever meet, but he is someone who understands how to build a team, bring people together, build consensus, and get things done. Because without a David Blair as County Executive, we continue to lose ground not only in Montgomery County but in the entire region. We have seen ourselves going backward in terms of jobs, economic development, even schools. It is time for a new leader and David is that person, a true leader who will take us to the next level.”
“David believes the housing shortage in our region is a critical challenge. He understands that rising costs and lagging homeownership rates among our younger generations are dragging down our local economy, and he is ready to take action to reverse these troubling trends. Building more housing, at all economic levels, is vital for our future - and David is committed to making that a reality.”
SENATOR CHERYL KAGAN

“David Blair will bring a common sense approach to revitalizing our economy by supporting our businesses and nonprofits as they work to recover from the pandemic. He has a proven track record of advocating for top-notch education for all students. I’ve seen his commitment to making a difference, and I am confident that he will provide the collaborative and compassionate leadership we need from our next County Executive.”
MAYOR JUD ASHMAN
City of Gaithersburg
“David Blair is going to bring the fresh perspective and collaborative leadership we need from our County Executive to better serve Gaithersburg and its residents. I’ve been impressed with David’s leadership serving those in need during the pandemic. I know David has the ability to bring much-needed new businesses and economic activity to our County and that he will work with municipal leaders to improve the quality of life for everyone.”
SENATOR NANCY KING
Senate Majority Leader, District 39 - Gaithersburg, Germantown, Montgomery Village, Clarksburg
“I’m excited to endorse David Blair to be our next County Executive. David will bring the fresh perspective and effective leadership that we need so that Montgomery County will again be a leader in our state. I have been so impressed by the amount of work David has done to find out what Montgomery County needs to improve all of our schools, to bring businesses here, and to prepare people for good-paying careers.”
"He has run a very successful company and as I’ve always said, there is really a big difference between serving on a legislative body and serving as an executive. David has executive leadership experience. As the person at the top, the executive has to have vision and the ability to sell that vision and ability to make things happen."
Former Mayor of Rockville, 2018 Candidate for County Executive
"David’s economic vision for the County, his experience as a successful entrepreneur and his work as a nonprofit and community leader together with his wife, Mikel, qualifies him to be the post-COVID leader Montgomery County needs at this moment in time."
Former Member of Congress, Sixth District
"I have a long and healthy perspective and believe David Blair is the most qualified candidate for Montgomery County Executive. His leadership record and vision for the county is what we need to reclaim Montgomery County as the state’s brightest star."
