Dear Friends + Neighbors –
What a difference a year makes. This time last year, the polls were just opening. I was standing at William Paca Elementary School, waiting to greet the first voters of the day, and knowing that no matter the outcome of the election, I had run the best campaign I could. Looking back over my campaign, as I do from time to time, I am still inspired and grateful for the many people who helped carry me across the finish line – into a first place victory! If not for you and them, I would not be where I am today – able to represent the residents of Baltimore City in the General Assembly.
All are invited to my first annual Community Picnic in the Park! Join me and my family, other elected officials, and your neighbors from around District 46 for food, facepainting, games, and ice cream! Information about schools and community programs will also be available. Sunday, May 31 from 2-4 p.m. at Patterson Park (northeast of the Pagoda).
Friends – I can hardly believe that my first session in the General Assembly has come to an end! I never knew that 90 days could go so by so quickly! I have learned so much – both substantive information about policies, and procedurally, so much about how the legislative process works (or sometimes doesn’t work as the case may be!).
