Thank You For Your Support!

Dear Friends,

We are moving quickly toward the New Year.  2014 has been a busy year!  I’d like to thank the voters of District 17 for entrusting me to work on their behalf in the Maryland State Senate over the next four years. 

Along with dozens of other new legislators, I will be sworn in on January 14, 2015 at noon. We are eagerly awaiting a budget proposal from Governor-Elect Hogan and see which legislation is brought for consideration during the 90-day legislative session.

But before any of that work gets underway, I would like to again thank retiring State Sen. Jennie Forehand.  Jennie served 36 years in the General Assembly representing District 17. She set a high bar for excellence in public service that I hope to emulate. I’m grateful for her example and look forward to continuing that work on behalf of our community. 

As session approaches, I am working with my colleagues on bills that will benefit the residents of Rockville, Gaithersburg, Montgomery County, and the entire state of Maryland. We will work to ensure adequate school funding so that all families can count on a quality public education for their children. We’ll also be working on bills to protect the environment, limit greenhouse gasses, ensure access to affordable health care, and services for the most vulnerable.

Along with my terrific staff team, I would like to extend best wishes for a joyous and safe holiday season. And please, don’t hesitate to reach out with your thoughts on pending legislation or need for assistance with navigating our State Government.

— Cheryl
