Water surrounds us in southern Maryland. We must do what we can to care for our rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. The livelihood of our watermen depends on it. Clean and safe waterways are also important for tourism, as well as the quality of life of all of our residents. As Delegate, I will work to ensure that policies implemented across the state will take into account the necessity for clean water in our region, and I will support environmental standards that will keep our land, air and water clean.
As Delegate, I would work to encourage smart and sustainable development in our counties. It is important to preserve the rural nature of southern Maryland while at the same time bringing in services, facilities and jobs for our residents. I believe that we can find that balance.
