ANNAPOLIS, MD – Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) attended the Maryland Democratic Party Annual Legislative Luncheon in Annapolis.
“It was an honor to join fellow Democrats from the Maryland State Senate and the House of Delegates today for their annual luncheon before the 436th Session of the Maryland General Assembly begins tomorrow,” said Congressman Hoyer. “I’m proud of our Democratic state lawmakers' efforts to ensure that every Marylander can get ahead and build a solid and stable foundation in our middle class. While we have made progress, there's more work to do to strengthen our state's economy, create jobs, and increase access to high-quality education in Maryland. We must all work together to ensure there are more opportunities for Marylanders to make the American Dream a reality. I will continue to support the efforts of our state lawmakers through my work in Congress. I thank Senate President Mike Miller, Speaker Michael Busch, and Members of the General Assembly for their hard work, and I look forward to working with them this year to improve the quality of life for Fifth District families and all Marylanders.”
In 1966, Congressman Hoyer was elected to the Maryland Senate. He was elected President of the Senate in 1975, the youngest ever in state history, and served in the Senate until 1978.
