Fire fighters and law enforcement officials put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. I am proud to stand with them and work to ensure that they have the resources they need through the Assistance to Firefighter Grant Program, the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Firefighters Program, and the COPS Hiring Recovery Program. I will continue to be a strong advocate for these brave men and women, and I thank them for their support.
These hardworking men and women support the defense and well-being of our nation, which is why I have consistently opposed efforts to reduce their wages, benefits, and hours. If we are to recruit and retain the best civil service in the world, we must ensure they have fair pay and benefits. I thank AFGE, AFSCME, NAGE, and NTEU for their support, and I will continue to partner with them to advocate for our federal workforce.
I am honored to receive the endorsements of the National Education Association, the Maryland State Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers, and AFT Maryland. The great Marylander Frederick Douglas once said, ‘It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men,’ and that is what educators are working to do each and every day -- teaching our children and preparing them for a bright and successful future.
Throughout my career, I have worked hard to secure funding to clean up the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, restore our oyster population, and preserve our parks and open green space, which are important to our history and cultural heritage.
