It's fund raising time again!!
Seafood Boil—Wednesday October 9, 2013 (ticket information)
Yes folks – it’s fundraising time again and my Annual Seafood Boil Fundraiser, my primary fundraising event, is coming up quick!
The next session of the Maryland General Assembly this coming January will be the final one of my first four year term in office representing the 36th District of Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Caroline Counties in the House of Delegates.
With the recent turn of events with respect to the appointments to both the Senate seat and a House of Delegates seat in the 36th District, the upcoming Primary and General Elections in 2014 will most likely present District wide contenders. I welcome the challenge, and want to carry the initiatives that I’ve been able to accomplish on behalf of our District forward for another term.
It has been a privilege to serve as follows:
- Member of the House Environmental Matters Committee and both the Agriculture and Natural Resources Subcommittees
- Appointed House Member of the Maryland Nutrient Management Advisory Board
- House Chair of both the Kent County and Caroline County Delegations
- Formed and Chair of the General Assembly Waterman’s Caucus
- Member Rural Counties Caucus
- Member Fire/EMS Caucus
- Recently appointed Chair of the House Republican Caucus
Although I’m in the minority party in the House, the working relationships I’ve developed with my colleagues on a non-partisan basis, has enabled me to be effective in reducing the impact of many liberal tax, regulation and program plans initiated by the current liberal Democrat controlled administration. I am especially grateful for the constituent support and participation that has been critical over the past 3 years - it also helped to make a difference.
I have always found the hardest part of public service to be asking for financial campaign support, especially in these ever more challenging economic times that are impacting all of us. To continue, however, I must ask for it to whatever extent you are able.
I sure hope you can join me on October 9th and humbly thank you for your support.
With best regards,
