The Journey Begins...

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 was a very special day. It marked the beginning of the 434th Legislative Session in Maryland’s history. Over the next 90 days, Senators and Delegates from across Maryland will be in Annapolis debating and voting on critical bills that impact people in every city, county, and district in the State.

This time next year, I hope to be attending my first session in Annapolis as one of your Delegates from District 26 and one of your staunchest advocates. I look forward to the opportunity to fight on your behalf for issues that are important to our community next year. My goal is to introduce and support legislation that:

  • Supports good paying jobs for working families;
  • Enhances resources for the community;
  • Ensures our children get the best education by providing access to the best teachers, the best technology and the best resources for our classrooms;
  • Supports effective law enforcement activities to ensure that the crime rates continue to drop;
  • Helps older adults stay in the community as long as possible with all the long term supports and services they need;
  • Ensures access to healthcare for all.

However, in my quest to be the best advocate possible, I need to hear from you. What issues would you like to see addressed? What challenges are facing the community?

We have a lot to do to accomplish this goal. Over the next few months I will continue to visit civic associations, knock on doors, and hold meet and greets in homes in this district.If your club or association is having a meeting that I should attend or if you and your neighbors would like to host a small meet and greet to discuss the problems you are facing, please feel free to contact me. I am also planning a listening tour as well as participating in service projects throughout the district and would love to hear from you. Check our website for details on upcoming events.

Community engagement is what drives my passion for politics. I have learned over the past ten years in public service that people matter and policy and legislation should reflect how much they matter.

I would like to thank everyone I have met so far; your insight has been invaluable. I invite all of you to join me on this journey. If you have ever wanted to make a difference in your community, join me.  If you have ever been frustrated by outdated policies that no longer support the greater good, join me. If you have ever felt that your voice did not matter and was not heard, join me. I need volunteers, I need donations and most importantly, I need your voice.

  • To donate:
  • To inform me about meetings or events I should attend email my Campaign Manager, Thomas Mayah at
  • Call the campaign: 240-257-6735
  • Want to volunteer? Email

I look forward to meeting more of you over the next year and being your voice at the next legislative session in Annapolis.
