An open Letter to Citizens of St Mary's County

Leonardtown, MD - The 2018 General Assembly Session is right around the corner and I am looking forward to returning to Annapolis to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass laws to improve the lives of St. Mary's citizens and all Marylanders.

Over the past year, I have reached out for your ideas for new legislation and improving existing laws, and you responded!  This year I am submitting bills to continue the oyster shell recycling tax credit, create a new category of third degree assault enabling prosecutors and judges to better match charges and sentences to crimes, change the firearms carry permit process so applicants can wait until after the state has reviewed their applications and provided preliminary approval before taking expensive certification training, define the term "child care" in the law, and many others. I truly appreciate your willingness to participate in the legislative process.

I also sent out a 2017 Constituent Survey to many households in my district, and the response has been great.  If you did not receive a survey and would like to participate, please go to and click on the link for the survey.  Sharing where you stand on the issues helps me do a better job at representing you in Annapolis.

Once again, I will hold several town hall meetings during this year's legislative session where I will brief you on what's happening in Annapolis and get your feedback. These sessions are always informative and engaging.

If you have any concerns or issues I can assist you with, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am honored to represent you in Annapolis.
