Maryland political observer describes Joel as "a no-nonsense, tell-it-the-way-it-us kind of candidate."
OpEd by Ryan Miner, A Miner Detail
Ryan Miner, Editor-in-Chief of A Miner Detail and the host of A Miner Detail Radio, recently shared his opinions on the candidates running on the District 18 House of Delegates race. In it, he shared praise for Joel's policy acumen and willingness to challenge the status quo. The complete passage is posted below:
Town of Chevy Chase Council member Joel Rubin is capitalizing on his national resume to boost his campaign, having spent close to a decade working for the State Department. Rubin has also built a television presence, appearing often on MSNBC to discuss national security and foreign policy issues.
There is no question that Rubin is one of the smartest policy wonks amid the field. He is comfortable talking policy and has the academic prowess to be a policy leader in Annapolis.
Rubin has used his campaign to highlight important issues like cyber and election security and has called on Gov. Larry Hogan, Attorney General Brian Frosh and State Election Board Chair David McManus to ensure the integrity of Maryland’s voting systems.
Moreover, Rubin has also earned the reputation as a no-nonsense, tell-it-the-way-it-us kind of candidate. Like Johns, Rubin isn’t afraid to take a shot or two at his opponents, challenging his fellow District 18 Democrats to take a stand on big issues. Voters appear to appreciate Rubin’s substantive grasp on policy and his fearless demeanor in upsetting the proverbial apple cart in Annapolis.
