It has truly been an honor to represent the 15th Legislative District in the Maryland General Assembly since first being elected in 2002. The federal government continues to send more issues back to the states. Battles over issues relevant to the daily lives of my constituents are increasingly being fought in the state legislature. More than ever, it is imperative that District 15 is represented by those who are equipped to be effective advocates and whose voices will be heard loud and clear in Annapolis. I have sought to be such a voice for the citizens of District 15.
