The Maryland General Assembly is officially part-time as we are only "in session" for 90 days a year (plus any special sessions). But work really goes on year round with meetings with constituents and advocates, research for future bills, constituent service, and participation in various work groups and task forces. Twice a week, my aide Joseph and I have a conference to go through each pending constituent case and office task we are currently addressing. Right now we have 20 separate constituent cases related to the State Highway Administration, Motor Vehicle Administration, the Comptroller, Pepco, and more. I also have two terrific high school interns that attend meetings and events I cannot get to and assist with research for future legislative initiatives. Even though the legislative session is only 90 days, my team and I are working for District 16 year-round.
