Please stand with me, work with me, march with me into the future, and I promise you this; whoever you are, wherever you are in Maryland and wherever you live, and whatever you do, we can restore our hopes, renew our dreams and once again make Maryland a state of opportunity and progress.
For as de Tocqueville, a known theorist said long ago, “America is a great country because she is a good country, and if she ceased to be good, she will cease to be great”.
When I reflect or ponder about our future, I see the State of Maryland that is full of hardworking people who share the same values, whether you are a teacher, a farmer, a businessperson, a student, a husband, a mother, we all have a stake in the future of our children, our state and our country and our common problems.
Let the word go out from this hall that as a delegate, I will continue the fight to herald a new era of transformation that will lead to economic development and more job creation. Let the message radiate from here that I will be there for the students, teachers, and parents. Specifically, my platform includes
- Economic Development and Job creation,
- Public Safety,
- Education, and Youth Engagement,
- Domestic Violence,
- Homeownership & Foreclosure, and
- Environment protection.
