It has been one of the biggest honors of my life to be one of the founders of the Caucus and to serve currently as chair of the Lower Shore Progressive Caucus. Over the last two years, we have accomplished so many great feats, including helping to pass 7 pieces of progressive legislation in the Maryland General Assembly, organizing hundreds of people on the Lower Shore around progressives issues, and electing 7 progressives to public office in our first election alone! I want to take the time to say thank you to each and every one of our fantastic volunteers because without your help none of this would be possible.
Secondly, I would like to thank my fellow members of the Caucus Leadership Whitney Palmer, Michele Gregory, Seamus Benn, Ryan Poe, and Jamaad Gould. Over the past two years, a lot has been asked from them on top of their outside lives. There have been long nights and ups and downs in our journey, but through it all, they have been my rock and always gotten the job done. There is no doubt in my mind that we have the best volunteers in the entire state. I know some of us are upset that we didn’t win as many races as we thought we would on November 6, but we have made significant progress for an organization that just two years ago was laughed at and told that we could never win any seats. With this in mind, I look forward to continuing our work building a progressive movement on the Lower Eastern Shore for years to come, and I am thankful for your continued dedication and support for me as Chair. With our hard work and continued efforts, we can build a progressive movement on the Lower Shore.
