Who We Are

With Empower Montgomery, we are doing something unique – by creating a new and vital organization which can effectively represent all Montgomery County residents – and avoid having political decisions influenced by narrow special interests.

We are not part of either the Democratic or Republican Parties in our group’s makeup, but approach issues and politics in a refreshing non-partisan manner; in fact, we are striving to engage younger and independent voters who feel shut out from a closed political process.

We are concerned leaders and citizens, from all areas and segments of our community, who have designed a modern and technologically-driven organization that can stay on top of key state and local issues and pending governmental decisions, in essential alignment with our priority issues.

We are set up as a non-profit, tax exempt organization in Maryland, which allows us to perform a wide range of public education and advocacy activities and even participate in elections when key issues get elevated in the voter’s mindset.

The founders of Empower Montgomery include Charlie Nulsen and Steve Silverman. We welcome your involvement and support.
