I was pleased to attend today’s White House ceremony and witness President Obama present Maryland Teacher of the Year, Sean McComb, the 2014 National Teacher of the Year award.
Americans have always looked to the men and women of our Armed Forces with gratitude and appreciation for placing their lives on the line to defend our freedoms, and as we begin observing National Military Appreciation Month throughout May, let us continue to salute their heroism, service, and sacrifice.
I’m pleased the House passed this legislation today, which makes important investments at military installations in and around the Fifth District and provides additional resources to the men and women who bravely served our nation in uniform.

I applaud Governor O’Malley and Lt. Governor Brown on making access to early childhood education a top legislative priority and for working with the Maryland General Assembly to enact the Pre-Kindergarten Expansion Act of 2014.

With close proximity to Washington, efficient transit connections, world-class institutions of research and higher education, and great neighborhoods, Prince George’s County is the right choice for the FBI’s new, consolidated headquarters.
