Happy #ReadAcrossAmericaDay! This photo was taken last year at Lothian Elementary - I can’t for the day of post-pandemic visits to classrooms across the District!
This is why we are focused on passing this common sense & effective legislation!
No data collected on transfer attempts by #CommCollege students to #Maryland’s public universities, colleges. But events suggest problems.
#CCTransfer students need transparent policy, predictable results. We support HB 460 by Del @JaredSSolomon & SB 886 @SenatorSarah. #MDGA21
See my newsletter for updates & info on: everything I know re the COVID vaccine distribution, environmental legislation, updated COVID restrictions here in AACo, things you should know BEFORE filing your taxes, COVID testing, & my Senatorial Scholarship.
The Student and Military Voter Empowerment Act is on the way to the Senate floor! Thanks to @SenatorSarah and @EricLuedtke for their work to increase civic engagement in Maryland. #MDGA21
The Senate EHEA Committee just voted 9-2 to pass the Student and Military Voter Empowerment Act and send it to the full Senate floor! Thank you to @SenatorSarah for her leadership on this important issue. #MDGA21
THANK YOU, Sen @katiefryhester for defending the bill! We’ll get it done together!
When women are elected, different decisions are made. Yesterday EHEA debated SB427- Provision of Menstrual Hygiene Products. Thank you for your leadership @SenatorSarah ! https://www.pewtrusts.org/research-and-analysis/blogs/stateline/2021/02/24/women-gain-record-power-in-state-legislatures
@jmpalmieri @SHO_TheCircus ^ This is why we’re friends.
Grateful to be back to the work of the #Maryland Senate & people of District 30! I received an initial false “positive” on a rapid test yesterday morning then a “negative” PCR result very early this morning. Everyone is safe, healthy, & focused on the people’s work!
Wishing a very happy #GalentinesDay to all the fabulous women in my life! I'm particularly grateful for my passionate & talented partners in serving this District, Delegate @ShanekaHenson & Delegate @DanaCJones!
This isn’t bill that throws good money after bad - it’s critical legislation to invest in targeted, data-proven measures like pre-k, special needs, teacher pay, funding for kids living in poverty. It’s the most important investment - opportunity - we can make. @MDSenate
@SenatorSarah just shared an email she received from a teacher, Megan, in her district that said, "This pandemic has highlighted the stark inequities in our communities... Our students deserve better."
Megan is absolutely right. Our children deserve a second bite at the apple.
