Mission & Vision

A Better World is Possible

As a delegate, I will work every day for the families of Maryland and District 31. Tackling issues like Healthcare, inflation, public safety, childhood poverty, education and more. 

Concern Issues

Top Issues that I consider important

Quality healthcare should be affordable and accessible. More expensive care often equates with worse care. Healthcare in aggregate represents ~20 billion dollars or ~40% of the state's annual budget. The issues most concerning to the residents of district 31 all intertwine and overlap with healthcare needs, access, and security. It is the lynchpin to a strong economy and safe communities.

Top legislative issues

  • Medicaid improvement of care delivery and cost containment
  • Renegotiation of Maryland’s All-Payor Medicare Innovation
  • Support to healthcare providers doctors, providers, nurses, and allied health professionals
  • Decrease influence of for-profit investors in the healthcare sector

-Public health preparedness

Inflation is a major threat to the economic security of Marylanders.  Inflation is driving up the costs of all basic needs and destabilizing the middle class.  Fixed income residents can not withstand increased costs of 25-50%.  Targeted state tax reforms to help this population, including eliminating income taxes on military pensions, will offset the negative effects of inflation without driving further inflationary forces.

Without basic economic security, people cannot plan for their families' future. Lack of security degrades quality of life and creates conflicts with the governmental institutions meant to support them. Financial anxieties have many other negatives including worsened health outcomes, substance abuse and alcoholism, and ultimately decrease in average life expectancies.

Basic public health measures and social safety-net initiatives can be put in place and bolstered by the state of Maryland to preserve economic security that guarantee protections for our citizens.  In turn, economic security enables a stronger and healthier workforce to continue to grow and stabilize our economy.

Small Businesses are the backbone of our community and of the middle class.  As the owner of several small businesses in Maryland and employer of nearly 100 Marylanders I understand the challenges that small businesses owners face.  The tax code and government regulations are geared towards supporting large businesses and often punish small businesses for success and growth.

Maryland incentives and grants geared toward spurring economic growth and small businesses in district 31 will be a key focus of my work in The House of Delegates.  Strong community based businesses will be competitive in the open market and will help buffer Maryland’s economy from recession and inflationary pressures.

Situated between Baltimore and Annapolis, District 31 is the main corridor for commerce between these two most important cities.  Concerns of crime and criminal enterprise including illicit drug trade entering our communities continues to be a rising concern.  Our ability to keep our families and homes safe is dependent upon the government ensuring crime is addressed with urgency within our communities.

As an airmen and a physician I have dealt with the first hand effects of substance abuse in our military family - highest suicide rates in decades and addiction to narcotics often prescribed for injuries suffered in the line of service.  Our honorable service members are returning from years of conflict,  reentering our communities during economic uncertainty with local services ill equipped to receive them and support their needs. Only addressing these issues in a holistic community based manner can we overcome these challenges.

The scourge of the heroin and fentanyl trade has not spared District 31 and many young residents have lost their lives.  The tragic social and economic impact on these families and our communities has long lasting repercussions.  Through smart and broad community based efforts can we beat back this enemy and regain the public safety.

Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is the landmark legislation which sets to overhaul our K-12 education system.  With a price tag of nearly 4 billion dollars per year for the next 10 years, the House of Delegates will have to continue to ensure that we fund this critical work.  Additionally, expanding service to age 3 and pre-K education will be a boon to the economy and supporting hard working middle class families.

Not only will teacher’s salaries need to remain competitive but support of their professional needs in and out of the classroom will be paramount.  Recruiting a diverse educator base and supporting class size limits are key instruments to strengthening our public schools.

Our children need the resources to be successful and competitive when they enter a more technologically advanced and complex economy.

1 out of every 10 children in District 31 lives in poverty with half of them living in deep poverty.  This number is worse for families of color and where the mother is the sole breadwinner.  The economic stress on these families and the long term healthcare ramifications for these children is unacceptable in a top tier state such as Maryland.

This group relies heavily on an expensive and inefficient medicaid system. The rates of substance abuse, mental health, and crime within this population are over-represented.  The economic and general health of our society is mirrored in the problem of childhood poverty, solving the root causes will serve all Maryland families.
