2016 DNC Convention: Making History

 

What a week! After spending 5 days in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention, I am exhausted but enthusiastic and wanted to drop you a quick note. It was an incredibly humbling experience to be able to represent Maryland as a convention delegate for Hillary Clinton. Maryland was well-represented on the national stage, as well - Rep. Elijah Cummings, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Mayor Rawlings-Blake, and former Governor Martin O’Malley all spoke to the Convention (and even Nancy Pelosi gave a shout-out to her home state of Maryland)!

June 24: Two Years After Primary Election

Two years have come and gone so fast. Two years ago today, the polls had just opened and I was standing at William Paca Elementary School greeting voters. Today, I’ll be starting my day at Maree Farring Elementary/Middle School in Brooklyn, talking with the principal and others about expanding its capacity to make room for more students who want to attend this thriving school.

Statement on Veto of HB 1010

Today, the Governor dealt another blow to public transportation in the Baltimore region when he vetoed a bill to create an oversight and planning board (HB 1010).  I am very disappointed and frustrated by the Governor’s decision to veto a bill that would make structural reforms to public involvement, oversight, and planning at MTA.
