On February 26th, 2016, I was sworn in the Maryland General Assembly as the first African American female from Montgomery County, Maryland to serve during our 90-day session in Annapolis with Speaker Busch and my Legislative District 14 colleagues, the MGA dream team. #MGA21
As part of #EngineersWeek, I want to highlight amazing engineers William Fauntroy and Mary Jackson, some of the problem-solvers of our world.

Unpaid leave hurts too many Marylanders, and hurts those with the greatest needs the most, forcing them to choose between income and their family's needs. Illness, childbirth, and disability should not be a financial death sentence.
In Maryland, implementing legislation with a racial lens helps advance education reform with more community involvement, police reform, economic improvements for disadvantaged communities, better health care, environmental injustice, and resurgence of race-based crimes. #SiXBHM
My colleagues and I reconvened last Dec. for a special session and passed SB20B-1, which set aside $4 million for the CO Minority Business Office. Almost immediately a lawsuit was filed against this legislation for violating the 14th Amendment. https://twitter.com/stateinnovation/status/1362485776466894849
It looks like Black Wall Street - Remember Tulsa, Oklahoma
Q5: What does it look like for Black communities to not just survive, but thrive? #SiXBHM
I champion legislation which seeks to increase homeownership for Black families. These bills are part of the Maryland Speaker of the House “Black Agenda” -
This legislation is important - https://www.nareb.com/publications/wealth-gap-widening-as-black-america-is-left-out-of-real-estate-recovery/. #SiXBHM
A3. My top priority this legislative session is Breonna’s Law for Kentucky (https://apps.legislature.ky.gov/record/21rs/hb21.html) to restrict the use of no-knock search warrants across our Commonwealth.
No family should carry the weight of what her family has endured.

I ran to be a voice for those whose voices and unique perspectives had not been heard or understood. At the time when I became part of the MGA, there was not a Black female from MoCo @MontgomeryCoMD. Its about inclusion, diversity, and representing all constituents. #SiXBHM
Q2: Why did you run for office? What does it mean to represent your community? #SiXBHM
