Why should voters elect you?

"I want four more years to make our schools even better, our bay even cleaner, our economy even stronger and our streets even safer."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Maryland undeniably is an attractive state in which to live and work. Our challenge is to manage the inevitable growth with more public schools, a better transportation program and access to quality health care, while preserving our environment through open spaces and a healthier bay. Through fiscal prudence and improved management, my administration has been able to meet our key needs and expand services in each of these areas without the need to raise income or sales taxes. I will continue to invest in programs that empower people with opportunities in life to succeed and contribute to Maryland."
