Cheryl Kagan | Maryland State Senator - District 17

Thank you for visiting my website!  It is an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of Rockville and Gaithersburg as District 17’s State Senator. 

Maryland’s 436th legislative session will convene at noon on Wednesday, January 13, 2016.  My staff and I are busy preparing legislative and local community initiatives in order to improve the quality of life for our residents.  

Ultimately, legislators introduce more than 2,600 bills — of which about roughly 300 will become law.  As a member of the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee, I will have an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues that come before the Committee.  I appreciate your views on legislation or issues.  Feel free to contact my office so that we can address your needs and concerns.

Having been born and raised in Montgomery County, I cherish what makes our community great: excellent schools, vibrant businesses, and outstanding cultural amenities.  But — we all know there is always room for improvement.  That is my commitment to you!

You can monitor the legislative process through the Maryland General Assembly website or through my social media.  I am on Facebook at State Senator Cheryl C. Kagan, on Twitter at @CherylKagan, and now on Instagram at @CherylCKagan.

Best wishes,


Cheryl C. Kagan
State Senator
District 17 (Rockville & Gaithersburg)
