Greetings friends, It's been a busy few weeks in Annapolis. This week we are having multiple floor voting sessions per day and long public hearings as we work through a record number of bills before the “crossover” date on March 16th.

I’m so proud of the District 9B team - Terry Chaconas and Cindy Scruggs. They are answering calls and emails (lots of emails!), making sure the bills and amendments are filed, training interns, and providing tremendous support to your Delegate. Fun fact - although they did not know each other until last year, they both won the “Friends of Education Award” from the Howard County Board of Education in different years in the past.
