The year 2020 brought many challenges to our community, our nation and our world, but a bright spot for The Civic Circle came the week of July 4th. That’s when Congressman Jamie Raskin interviewed Eliza Newlin Carney, The Civic Circle’s founder and president, for his “Local Heroes” series. Here’s how Congressman Raskin summed it up in a recent blog post:
Episode 14: Eliza Newlin Carney
Star-spangled journalist and songwriter Eliza Newlin Carney, President and Founder of The Civic Circle, was our local hero the week of July 4th.

We are fortunate in the 8th district to be represented by a constitutional law expert and democracy advocate who is such a good neighbor, friend and helper to all his constituents. You can read Congressman Raskin’s whole blog post here.
