A Proven Legislator, Working for the People.
As your Senator in the General Assembly, I work for you. That’s why I fight for good schools, citizen safety, public services and the natural environment. I don’t answer to high-priced lobbyists or party-line politicians. I answer to you and I pledge to continue to do so as your Full-time State Senator.
In the past four years, Sen. Karen Montgomery sponsored 550+ measures to improve your quality of life.
In the next four years, she’ll continue to be a champion for District 14 residents and all Marylanders by:
- Balancing Maryland’s budget, safeguarding taxpayers’ money and ridding agency budgets of waste
- Reducing traffic congestion, improving roads and encouraging use of mass transit
- Assuring continued support for community safety efforts and for police, fire and emergency personnel
- Cultivating a thriving economy with more contracting opportunities for small businesses, incentives for job creation and enticements to retain Maryland companies and to attract businesses from elsewhere
- Creating a healthier environment through innovative policies governing our air, water and land
- Identifying creative ways to keep Maryland public schools #1 in the nation, to enhance early childhood education, to improve minority student achievement and to expand postsecondary opportunities
- Requiring fair treatment for all Maryland children and adults, without regard to their abilities
