A Who’s Who of Clergy from across Maryland filled The Forum on Monday to endorse C. Anthony Muse: from conservative-leaning, Bishop Harry Jackson, to Hispanic Pastor, Bishop Angel Nunez, to African Methodist Episcopal Presiding Elder Goodwin Douglas of Harford County, to Baptist Minister’s Conference of Baltimore President, Dr. John Lunn and a host of others including Pastor Haywood Robinson of Montgomery County, Bishop Reginald Kennedy, Bishop Monroe Saunders, Jr., Bishop Larry Lee Thomas of Baltimore County and so many more too numerous to list.
On yesterday the Rev. Alvin J. Gwynn Sr., president of the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance and pastor of Friendship Baptist Church continued this pattern by making a formal announcement endorsing Senator Cardin.
In a room of nearly two dozen Baltimore-area clergy, Muse shared his concerns related to challenges in the country and specifically in the Black Community. He lamented the lackluster response to Black unemployment by those representing Maryland on Capitol Hill, and pledged that his priority as a U.S. Senator would center on job creation. In familiar clergy cadence, he also spoke about education, housing issues, and his vote against the redistricting plan which, he said, negatively impacts Maryland’s Black community resulting in the potential loss of millions of dollars.
