The freshman class of the General Assembly is a little like Maryland itself: America in miniature. The new members have a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. They range in age from 25 (Del.-elect Joe Vogel of Montgomery County) to 72 (Sen-elect Benjamin Brooks and Del.-elect Cheryl Pasteur, both of Baltimore County). And they are a racially and ethnically diverse lot. Three of the eight incoming senators are women, while 15 of 40 freshman delegates are women.
