Thanks to the support of constituents and friends across the region, I have been able to serve in the Maryland General Assembly. Over the last 12 years, I have always voted my conscience placing my constituents’ best interests above anything else. As I promised 12 years ago, my votes have reflected fiscal conservatism combined with a great concern for protecting open space and saving the Chesapeake Bay. I continue to remain an independent thinker, placing policy before party.
I believe in both sharing my views on specific issues as well as my long term vision for the state with voters. At the same time, I want to foster a dialogue and hear from others on these very same issues. Hearing from you about your priorities for your family, community, and our state is always appreciated. I am just an email or phone call away and I encourage you to share your thoughts, opinions, and concerns regarding issues important to you. Additionally, if I can ever be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I’ll remember Maravene’s Loeschke’s life as being one that was filled with grace and dignity. Not long ago we were having lunch, and I was telling her about a professor I had at The University of Maryland who had changed my life. Maravene asked me if I had ever called him and thanked him. I hadn’t. She made me promise her that I would call him and tell him how grateful I was. Three weeks later I did just that. Maravene understood what was important in life and she did everything she could to share it with others. I’ll miss her always, and I along with the rest of the Towson University community honor her life and mourn her passing.
