While the 90-day session requires spending a lot of time in Annapolis, I still make it a priority to be here in the district speaking directly with constituents. After all, it is the time spent in East Baltimore that shapes how I approach my job in the capitol. I am thankful for the many neighbors throughout the 45th District who have spared a few moments to candidly speak with me about issues that they are having in their communities and allowed my office to be of assistance.
In the District
Team McCray has been in every corner of the 45th District over the past few months. Already we have knocked on over 13,000 doors – that’s in addition to the over 5,000 phone calls that we’ve made throughout the campaign. This is just one example of how we work to bring our services directly to you.
This month we also hosted our first “Conversation with Cory” of the 2018 session. After a recap of the happenings in Annapolis, Jason Perkins Cohen from the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) joined us to speak about his office’s exciting work and partnerships. Thank you to all who came out. We’re already looking forward to next month’s event!
The campaign is proud to have earned the endorsement of Mr. Teddy Smith of Cedonia. Mr. Smith joins several neighbors who have taken some time to film a quick message about why they’re on #TeamMcCray. I’m grateful to each of them for their support as we get closer to the final stretches of the campaign.
ICYMI: Scholarship applications are now available for new and continuing college students who live in the 45th District. The application must be submitted no later than April 13 and can be found here.
In the News
I recently wrote an op-ed for the Baltimore Sun, detailing three new public safety bills that I’ve sponsored this session. Each of the bills has the majority support of the Baltimore City delegation and we’ll be working to see them enacted into law. You can read the full editorial here.
I also had the chance to join WBAL to discuss my solutions for public safety and how I think we can build trust in the Baltimore City Police Department.
Listening. Learning. Leading.
