The past two weeks were busy with budget briefings and visits with constituents! Last week, I was honored to speak at a rally to preserve funding for providers treating behavioral health conditions. The rally to help “Keep the Door Open” to patients was a huge success, and I hope that we are able to pass this important legislation to make sure anyone can get the treatment they need.

Happy February - I hope you stayed warm during the very cold weekend!  It has been an incredibly fast-paced session so far, with no signs of slowing down.  Below I discuss some of the bill hearings and budget briefings we’ve had, but I’ve also found time to have many meetings with constituents who have come down to advocate on a variety of topics - from bikes to animals to transit!

The last time I emailed, we were just about to vote to override several vetoes by the Governor.  At this time, the House has voted to override all six of the Governor’s vetoes, and the Senate has voted to override 5 of 6 - with one vote left to take.

Friends & Neighbors:

This is the first of the bi-weekly updates that I will send out and post on my website regarding the 2016 General Assembly Session.  The 2016 Session has started off strong! Leaders have informed us that there have been a record-level of bills requested for drafting, meaning we may have some very long days in hearings and on the floor voting. (This is a picture of me and my friends and fellow Baltimore legislators, Cory McCray and Antonio Hayes).

Another year has ended, and a new one has begun.  Today we are one week away from the start of my second session in the General Assembly.  Last year was certainly a milestone year for me and my family, as I was sworn in as a State Delegate in January, appointed to the Appropriations Committee, and worked to effectively represent District 46.

Every year I have so much to be thankful for, and this year is no exception. This time last year I was just starting to get used to the fact that I had won an election - and now I’m wrapping up an exciting and whirlwind year, while preparing for my second session in Annapolis.  I wouldn’t be here without your support or the support of my family. I am grateful every day to have the opportunity to serve our City and State and work as an ally with the many wonderful people and organizations dedicated to building a better Baltimore and a better Maryland. Together with Eben and Teddy, I wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.

Below are a few items I am happy to be able to share with you --

Friends & Neighbors: It’s hard to believe that summer is over.  My son started back to school last week, and hearings in Annapolis for “interim” work have begun again. It was a difficult summer for Baltimore City -- we have seen a dramatic increase in homicides, and the lives of many Baltimore residents, including some children, have been cut tragically short.  In addition, many of our small businesses have seen fewer customers come through their doors. I encourage you to #shoplocal and get involved with your community association or other non-profit advocacy group in the City. There is much work to be done to build a great City for all our residents.
