Local journalism has been the bedrock of American democracy for centuries, but unfortunately is rapidly disappearing from our communities as local outlets are bought up & taken over. @RepPerlmutter @RepCicilline @RepRaskin @newsalliance @NewsLeaders
A very Happy Hanukkah to all celebrants this year. May you enjoy the Festival of Lights in peace with your loved ones, neighbors and friends.
Boebert’s semi-apology—to people offended “in the Muslim community”—leaves out everyone else who opposes traffic in racist tropes. She should also apologize for bringing a Capitol cop into her lie, when she voted against awarding the Medal of Honor to cops who defended us on 1/6.
Too bad we couldn’t have Thxgiving without Rep. Boebert’s deceitful bigoted provocation. Why concoct terrorists at the Capitol? Just remember them—assaulting 140 cops and trying to hang VP Pence and cancel our election.
Happy Thanksgiving to MD-8 and beyond! I’m grateful for the blessings and bounty of this land and hope that everyone celebrating has a wonderful day with family, friends and loved ones. Share a picture of your meal!
As Executive Director of Carroll County Food Sunday, Caroline Babylon helps neighbors put food on the table. This Thxgiving alone, she led distribution of 400 turkey dinners!
Today, I give thanks for #MD08 local heroes like Caroline who nourish MD-8 all year-round.
Hey it's an ALL-NEW @talkingfedspod focused on the seismic double hit of 1) House passage of BBB bill & 2) Rittenhouse acquittal, with an awesome group of prominent experts--@LauraAJarrett @CongressmanRaja & @RepRaskin--joining Harry. All right here: https://bit.ly/BalksTF
In addition to meeting with senior USPS officials earlier this month and discussing my constituents’ delivery issues, I wrote a letter with my MD delegation colleagues to Louis DeJoy asking a simple question: how is he preparing USPS to handle the oncoming surge of holiday mail?
Happy Bday, @POTUS! Your calming leadership is making government work for the people again and taking us through the pandemic, the global climate emergency and violent threats against our democracy. What an honor to work with you every day to Build Back Better for America.
Profuse thanks to my stellar U.S. Service Academy Nominations Board for taking their Saturday and interviewing the multitude of impressive student applicants. I appreciate the insight and experience of all my panelists.
