Sunil Dasgupta announces CASA in Action and Del. Eric Luedtke endorsements, releases list of 50 organizations and community leaders supporting campaign for Board of Education
Rockville, MD - Dr. Sunil Dasgupta, candidate for the open at-large seat on the Montgomery County Board of Education, today announced the endorsements of immigrant rights organization CASA in Action and MD House Majority Leader Eric Luedtke (District 14). He also released a list of over 50 organizations, elected officials, and community leaders supporting his campaign.
“As we had hoped, this campaign has brought together different parts of the county like no other in this election,” Dasgupta said. “We have built a coalition that stretches from Silver Spring to Germantown and from Laytonsville to Bethesda, and includes families, teachers, students, and many others from the two-thirds of county residents who do not have students in MCPS. We stand together for all students and schools as we face the challenges of budget shortfalls, distance learning, and the trauma inflicted by this pandemic.”
Dr. Dasgupta is a father of three current MCPS students, an experienced county-wide PTA leader, and the director of an academic program at UMBC at the Universities at Shady Grove. He brings significant teaching and public policy expertise, including knowledge of public finance and online education, and has written on policy issues impacting the school system.
In addition to the recent endorsement from CASA in Action, Dr. Dasgupta enjoys the support of the MCPS employee unions, Progressive Maryland, and County Council President Sidney Katz, as well as other community leaders with whom he has worked.
“I am very proud to endorse my good friend Sunil Dasgupta for the at-large seat on the Board of Education,” said Katz. “I know Sunil from his work on the Annual Mental Health and Wellness Forum. Sunil has created an event that the county sorely needs. I look forward to working with him as a board member to improve our schools and help every student succeed.”
