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 continuing to work on issues that matter most to Montgomery County residents.

The Senate has officially adjourned. I enjoyed working with the 18 newly elected Senators as well as those who returned to the 47-member body. My legislative agenda addressed key issues affecting our State including: updating our 9-1-1 system’s technology; banning harmful polystyrene statewide (brand name “Styrofoam”); addressing our police recruitment shortfall; protecting consumers’ private information; enacting needed election reforms; and earning State funding for important local projects. Would you like to learn about our productive session which earned me the title of “Winner” by Maryland Matters? You can read my 2019 Session wrap-up here
