Judge Vickie Gipson garnered 103k votes, more than any Black candidate in Anne Arundel
(ANNAPOLIS – November 26, 2022) – Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Some of the political pundits predicted a “red wave” and others had hoped for a “blue wave”, what came instead was a “black wave” that changed the political complexion of Anne Arundel County politics. Here is one for the history books.
Judge Gipson was the highest vote-getter in that race, receiving more than 103,000 votes. In addition, she now must likely become the chief judge of that court. God is good.
Clearly, this did not happen by happenstance, coincidence, or accident, it came about because of the hard work of many people.
I am aware of those who held fundraisers, donated money, organized “Souls to the Polls”, and worked tirelessly in these campaigns. They made a difference.
On December 13, 2022, at 5:00 p.m., we will celebrate the victory of not only these African American candidates but their allies as well.
