Jonathan Shurberg—whose involvement in Montgomery County politics included roles ranging from election law attorney to candidate to political activist and blogger—died early Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after a series of illnesses. He was 54.
Shurberg was first hospitalized in early March for a viral infection, and was later diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, according to local political consultant Kevin Gillogly, a close friend. Shurberg’s medical condition was complicated further by a series of cardiac arrests this spring.
