How a Delegate Works...
A Brief Note on the Maryland Legislature: The Maryland Legislature consists of two distinct branches: the Senate and the House of Delegates. Maryland is divided into 47 legislative districts. Each district sends one senator and three delegates to the General Assembly. Each district may be subdivided into two or more districts. District 42 is one of those districts that is subdivided into two districts. District 42B is represented by two Delegates and one Senator at the state level.
A Delegate is Your Legislator: A Delegate is your state representative in the Maryland General Assembly. A delegate writes and votes on legislation at the state level. Each delegate has one vote on legislation when it comes before the delegate's committee, and one when it is considered by the entire House of Delegates. An effective delegate interacts with their community, finds solutions to the problems they face, and writes and supports legislation based on their input. A delegate is an advocate. delegates are elected to a four-year term and work as a legislative body for 90 days each year.
Your Other Representatives: District 42B resides entirely in Baltimore County. At the county level, people in 42B are represented by a County Councilperson and County Executive in Towson, MD. At the state level, we are represented by two state delegates (office that I'm running for) and a state senator. At the Federal level, we are represented by two senators and one congressman.
