Welcome to the website of Delegate Marc Korman.
I was first elected in 2014 and have dedicated my time in the state legislature to ensuring economic growth and prosperity for all Marylanders. If the economy is strong, we will be able to invest and achieve many important goals which will improve our quality of life. This includes cleaning and protecting our environment, rebuilding and maintaining our infrastructure, assisting those less fortunate, and ensuring that all Marylanders have access to opportunities regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.
In Montgomery County, our economic success is built on our tremendously successful school system and our transportation network. If we continue to support and improve these assets, our potential is limitless. During my time in the legislature, I have written and supported bills ensuring adequate education funding, improving conditions for Maryland workers and enhancing the quality of public transportation.
I am excited to continue engaging in a campaign of ideas and hope you will use this website to learn my views on the important issues facing our community.
If you have additional thoughts or would like to get involved in our campaign, please contact me!

Details are still being finalized, but the current plan for the November election is that unlike the primary this year, you will not automatically receive a ballot in the mail. Furthermore, more polling places will be open on election day itself than during the primary, with county high schools serving as voting centers.
I was recently recommended the book Heavy Lifting: The Job of the American Legislature by Alan Rosenthal. The book is a deep dive into how state legislatures operate and includes Maryland as a case study. The book references a brochure the Ohio legislature circulates which explains that "as your employees, [legislators] seek your input on pending legislation and want to help you with personal matters involving state agencies," which is a succinct statement of why I am here. According to the book, in a survey of legislators in five states, the respondents overwhelmingly believed that "it
Those of you who follow me on Facebook know that I am an avid reader. I recently read Six Crises by Richard Nixon, a book he wrote between his unsucessful 1960 presidential campaign and unsuccessful campaign for California Governor in 1962. Nixon is certainly not my favorite president--although like many disappointing presidents he has risen in estimation in the past few years--but his book title overlaps with our state and country's current condition. In my view, we are concurrently facing six acute crises:
