Together, We Rise!
I believe that Movement Politics builds power for all of us.
In this time of crisis, we rise up. We rise up for people and planet. For a government that protects the right of all people to thrive. For a society where every person has a say in our collective future.
Join Team Brandy!
You are central to building a progressive movement focused on the issues that matter most to our communities throughout Montgomery County. We send regular updates on the campaign, including volunteer opportunities, community events, and Election Day information.
Meet Brandy Brooks
I’m running for Montgomery County Council At-Large because we need to build a people-powered democracy from the ground up, and that starts with a local government that actually responds to the needs and hopes and dreams of the residents of our County.
I believe that real democracy means we govern ourselves: instead of sending a representative to an elected body and crossing our fingers that she will do what we hope, we are actively working with that representative to support and hold each other accountable to creating the world we want. The kind of politics I care about isn’t just about winning campaigns. It isn’t about having the right background or the right message or the right look. I want to build a world that matches our values – a world where justice and love and dignity and care for one another are the bedrock for how we govern ourselves.

“It’s not enough to have progressive ideals.
We need policy that makes justice and equity into concrete realities.”
“This isn’t about one candidate and one election.
We are organizing our communities to build a world that matches our values.”
“People have a right to shape the policies
that affect their lives — their food, their health,
their economy, their environment.”
“Our money. Our votes.
Our voices. Our government.
That’s what democracy means to me.”
