Thank you for visiting my website. It is an honor and a privilege to serve another four years as District 17’s State Senator for the residents of Gaithersburg and Rockville. I am looking forward to working on the issues that matter most to Montgomery County residents over the next four years.
The Senate reconvened on January 9, 2019 at noon. I am looking forward to working with the 18 newly elected Senators as well as those who are returning to the 47-member body. My legislative agenda will address key issues affecting our State including: updating our 9-1-1 system’s technology; banning harmful polystyrene statewide (brand name Styrofoam); protecting consumers’ private information; enacting needed election reforms; and earning state funding for important local projects.
Would you like to learn about our busy and productive 2018 session? You can read about my work in the Senate here. During the three months we met, we passed important legislation regarding schools, guns, sick leave, and Metro. My successes included new laws to help fund nonprofits; improve 9-1-1 emergency response; and translate State websites.
As you may know, I hosted and produced the 3rd annual UnNaugural concert. Five performers entertained us while we raised funds for five local nonprofit organizations that work on issues related to affordable housing, domestic violence, poverty, pollution, and suicide prevention. Please take a moment to check out the website and videos from the concert.
