WALDORF, MD – Last night, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) attended the 2015 Truman-Kennedy Dinner, hosted by the Charles County Democratic Central Committee. Maryland House Speaker Michael Busch served as the keynote speaker at the 39th annual dinner.
“I was honored to celebrate the hard work of Charles County Democrats at the Annual Truman-Kennedy Dinner,” said Congressman Steny Hoyer. “Thanks to their efforts, Charles County is becoming a reliable Democratic stronghold in Maryland, and I’m confident that this trend will continue, with even stronger results in 2016.”
“Much is at stake next year, and with a presidential race we’re anticipating a lot of excitement and interest,” continued Congressman Hoyer. “I’m hope everyone will help to turn that excitement into grassroots activism and that interest into voter turnout. As Democrats, our mission is to make sure that workers and their families, seniors, students, and those still looking for jobs aren’t left behind in this recovery. I appreciate all of the hard work and the dedication to the cause of electing candidates at the local, state, and federal levels who are committed to ensuring that the promise of America can be put into practice for all Americans.”
Congressman Hoyer also paid tribute to the legacy of Gregg Waller, a member of the Charles County Democratic Central Committee, who passed away earlier this year. Federal, state and local officials attended the dinner, including Senator Barbara Mikulski; Representatives Chris Van Hollen and Donna Edwards; Senate President Mike Miller; Senator Mac Middleton; Delegates Edith Patterson, Sally Jameson, and C.T. Wilson; Commissioner President Peter Murphy; Commissioners Ken Robinson, Debra Davis, Amanda Stewart and Bobby Rucci.
