Today we celebrated the landmark Headworks Project that will eliminate 80% of the volume of sewage overflowing the City’s aged sanitary sewer system and keep our streams, Inner Harbor and Chesapeake Bay cleaner.
Fantastic segment and glad to see a pic of my colleague @Smith4Delegate leading press conference on passage of the MD @thecrownact #endhairdiscrimination
#ICYMI Comedian @iamjohnoliver

DRUM ROLL PLEASE! According to the 2020 Census data just released, the U.S. population is 331,449,281 -- an increase of 7.4%. This is the second slowest growth in U.S. history. The South is the fastest growing region. As suspected, MD did not gain/lose any seats in Congress.
We won historic police reform in Maryland! Thank you to 1199 members, tagged legislators and organizations for making our communities safer with these reforms.

@BMORE_NHENT @Smith4Delegate My bill HB238/SB201 did pass this year& expands expungement for charges & certain convictions. I worked closely w/ @jotfmaryland to get this out of both the house & senate before end of the 90 day session. More to be done next year.

George Floyd's village received the ONLY just outcome in this heinous case. Thankful my old boss MN AG @keithellison took this case & assembled a grade A prosecution team. Blessings to the prosecution's witnesses. One battle was won in the war against unjust & racist policing.
Only *seven* police officers have been convicted of murder for police shootings since 2005.
And here is the answer to my question. THIS IS A PROBLEM. And exactly why we worked the entire session (in partnership with @Nick_Mosby) to include forfeiture of pensions in MD police reform. The House passed pension forfeiture TWICE. @LukeClippinger @VAtterbeary @WanikaFisher https://twitter.com/keithwalmsley/status/1384625953079545856
