ANNAPOLIS, MD - Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement today after filing for re-election to represent Maryland's Fifth Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives:
"I am pleased to file for re-election to continue serving the people of Maryland's Fifth District," said Congressman Hoyer.

Much has been accomplished to improve the lives of families in the Fifth District, but there is more work to be done."
