What I've done


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.

I am honored to receive the endorsement of Attorney General Brian Frosh, Maryland's leading democratic voice.

“I worked closely with Jim Brochin in the Maryland Senate for 12 years, and I know him well. He is thoughtful, open-minded and rigorously honest. He is an intelligent and effective advocate for his constituents, and he has been a champion of environmental causes. I believe in Jim’s vision... He will make a great Baltimore County Executive.” Brian Frosh, 4/12/2018
