ENSURING PUBLIC SAFETY
Jim understands safe neighborhoods are the foundation of a strong community and focus on public safety improvements in Baltimore.
In my fifteen years of service, I have always placed my constituents’ concerns above politics. I have worked tirelessly on environmental issues, protecting the Chesapeake Bay, preserving open space, and ensuring that new state construction will be green buildings. I have sponsored legislation to make sure that violent offenders serve their whole sentences while recognizing drug addiction is a disease requiring treatment rather than incarceration.
