Every Election is Essential

Early Voting is October 25 – November 1 at selected location, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Election Day is November 6, 2018 – Polls are open 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

For more information on voting, visit the State Board’s website: https://elections.maryland.gov/

Happy fall! The chill in the air and the costumes in the stores indicate only one thing (at least to me!): it’s almost time to VOTE! And VOTE is something I hope you will do.

The past two months have been so busy  – I’ve attended public safety discussions, guest lectured at college courses and met new medical students, met with advocates to discuss public transportation, community development, abating truck traffic, developing more open space, supporting our institutions like the South Baltimore Learning Center, and I’ve been speaking with bill drafters about legislation for next session (not to mention two meetings of the Joint Cmte to End Homelessness in Annapolis!).  I’ve also spent some time on the weekends outside of the City – knocking on doors around the state talking to voters to make sure they know that we have exceptional State Senate, House, and local candidates running in their district. It is so important that we elect great Democrats from every corner of Maryland so we can ensure we have an effective General Assembly, making positive changes that benefit all Marylanders at a time when our President is doing just the opposite.

Here in Maryland, early voting starts TOMORROW! Early voting is an easy way to make sure you can find time to cast your ballot in this important election. There are two early voting polls in District 46 – the Southeast Anchor Library and Patapsco Elementary School – but you can go to any of the 7 sites in Baltimore.

Make a plan today to Vote Early  so you don’t miss your chance! 

Thursday, October 25 – Thursday, November 1

10 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Not registered? No problem. You can register to vote during early voting – but only during early voting! Check your registration here.

There are two constitutional amendments on the ballot! I hope you’ll vote YES on Question 1 to create a lockbox and ensure that all revenue from casinos go to education and YES on Question 2 to amend our Maryland Constitution to allow voter registration on Election Day!

I need you to vote – but I also need you to help me spread the word: remind your neighbors to vote and check in to make sure they have! And, if you can, help spread the word in Baltimore during the final weeks of the campaign and on Election Day!

Please click here to sign up to volunteer in Baltimore City or here to donate.

See you at the doors or at the early voting locations! Thank you for all you do to help build a better Baltimore and a better Maryland!

2018 Mail: Progress Report

I ran four years ago because I knew that Baltimore City needed strong champions advocating for our families and communities at the state level. We face huge challenges in Baltimore, but we’ve also made important progress over the past four years. My latest mail piece hits mailboxes this weekend and highlights some of the policies I’ve enacted and championed during my first term.

Check it out here.

 

Being a Mom & a Delegate

On this cloudy Mother’s Day, I felt fortunate to be able to spend a couple hours doorknocking with my 5-year-old son, Teddy, in our neighborhood. We had fun knocking on doors, talking to our neighbors, and Teddy was a good sport when I showed him how to shake someone’s hand.

I take being a State Delegate very seriously because I see how fast Teddy and his baby sister Eliza are growing up and I know our kids don’t have a minute to spare – every policy I push, every bill I sponsor, every community I work with – it is all to make sure that our kids have the chance to fulfill their potential.

We are springing forward into the final stretch of session – this comingMonday, March 19, is the “crossover” deadline. Any bill introduced in the House must be passed out of the House by midnight on March 19 to be guaranteed a hearing in the Senate. So this is make-or-break week for many bills!
