This week Center Maryland continues recognizing the winners from the 2022 Maryland General Assembly. When you think about legislators who are in the middle of the real consequential quality of life legislation that moves through Annapolis, it’s hard to have a discussion without talking about Senator Malcolm Augustine. He has made a name for himself by quietly getting things done for the people of his district, Prince George’s County and the state, whether it be mental health, Medicaid or seniors’ issues. His common sense and genuine manner brings out the best in others. Along with several behavioral health bills, this year he helped pass, along with Delegate Bonnie Cullison, the first dental benefit in Medicaid for Maryland adults in decades, easing the minds of Marylanders seeking oral health care, and over-stretched hospital emergency departments.
Winner: Senator Malcolm Augustine
