What's Happening

Midway and a bit

March 2, 2019

Last week was the half way mark of our legislative session, so I wanted to update you on the bills I've introduced and the major issues we're addressing at the moment. 

Shelly's 2019 bills

Annapolis in January

January 29, 2019

The beginning of the 2019 session is off to an exciting start and, as I have in past years, I will send you updates about what's happening during session. I've found that the 90 day session has a rhythm, and we're now in the bill crafting/drafting stage. The first year of a 4-year term brings dozens of new members, and I'm enjoying getting to know new colleagues from across the state. 

Happy New Year!

I was recently reminded that it was 5 years ago yesterday that we gathered with friends and family at The Pikes to announce that I would be a candidate for the House of Delegates. It's hard to believe that two elections later, I've completed my first full term in the Maryland General Assembly and the second term will begin on January 9th. 

Your Chance to Weigh In

October 7, 2018

I titled this email "Your Chance to Weigh In," to make you aware of opportunities -- campaign and community events -- where you can let your voice be heard.

​If the past few weeks, during the U.S. Senate's confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court, shows us anything, it is that ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES. And this means that the midterm elections are VERY important.  

Thank You!!

Thank you! I am very excited to have won the opportunity to represent the 11th District in the General Assembly for a second term.

Thank you to everyone who knocked on thousands of doors, staffed the Early Vote and Election Day polls, read our mail, contributed financially, posted signs, waved at corners, served as formal and informal advisors, spoke to their friends about our work, and voted.
