The big news this past week is all about politics. Senator Barbara Mikulski has decided not to seek reelection after five terms in the Senate. The news that several of Maryland's Members of Congress may run for the seat has many of my colleagues—and a long list of others from outside the legislature—considering Congressional campaigns. Interestingly, state legislators are not on the ballot in 2016 and do not need to give up their current seats to run (but would have to resign if they win). I am excited to be supporting Chris Van Hollen for the U.S. Senate. Congressman Van Hollen has political savvy, policy smarts, and has also stayed connected to the district he serves. I think those are skills we need in the U.S. Senate.
Members of the General Assembly are given funds to award scholarships to residents of their districts for higher education. If you or someone you know is interested, please visit http://www.marckorman.com/ scholarship for more information about the process. Applicants must live in District 16 and either be pursuing their degree in Maryland or seeking to obtain a degree unavailable in the state. More information is on the site.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
