New Position, Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus

News from the House In the past five months since her election, House Speaker Adrienne Jones has taken a steadfast and thoughtful approach to laying the foundation for her time as Speaker of the House of Delegates. She recently announced new leadership appointments. I am pleased to report that Speaker Jones has appointed me as Vice Chairman of the Democratic Caucus. I am grateful to the Speaker and excited about this new opportunity to serve my fellow delegates and the people of Maryland. Speaker Jones has also instituted two initiatives to make it easier for the public to participate in the legislative process.

Economic Matters Committee Tour

As part of an Economic Matters Committee tour today, I visited a six year old distillery in St. Michael’s, one of only a few in Maryland owned by a woman, Lyon Distilling Company. Just four years ago, there were only a handful of craft distilleries and now there are 30 in operation or planning to open in the next year. Lyon made the first Rye whiskey in MD in over 40 years, but their very successful specialty is Young American Rum for which they won 2nd Best Craft Rum Distillery in the U.S. Lyon and it’s partner distillery, Gray Wolf Craft Distilling (vodka, gin, and agave), employ 20 people. Laws were passed by the General Assembly to give distilleries flexibility in tasting room operations
