Nearly 3,000 residents of Riderwood retirement community will vote November 6  in two separate county voting precincts located at their campus in Silver Spring, MD.

Many of Riderwood’s residents  belong to one of two resident-run political groups on campus—one for Democrats and one for Republicans. And though these two groups may hold different political opinions, they both serve as places for freedom of expression.

Knowing what those things are, and being able to pull them off, can make all the difference.

“Many people who want to become musicians or have a career in the hip hop industry shy away from it because they are afraid they won’t be successful,” explains Steve Lobel, well-known celebrity music manager. “But their success starts with what they believe. If you believe in yourself, you can make it happen.”
