Platform

Delegate Washington is a fierce and tireless advocate for us in Annapolis!

Stronger Schools

Fight for and secure funds for Baltimore City Schools, ensure the money is spent wisely and invest in student and teacher success.

Safer, Healthier Communities

Champion solutions to stop violent crime, reform our correctional and detention facilities, create recreational opportunities for our young people, reduce environmental hazards in and around our homes and prevent condominium and single-family home foreclosures.

Jobs and Revitalization

Restore our communities by investing in local businesses, paying a livable wage and expanding adult education and job training that moves Baltimore City families out of poverty and into economic self-sufficiency.

Accountability

Make state agencies more efficient, ensure workers have dignity and respect on the job and improve the housing and supportive services we provide to our seniors.
