Legislative Reception in Annapolis

Delegates and State Senators in Annapolis made their way to the Maryland Inn Monday night for an AFT-Maryland legislative reception. It was well attended by labor leaders and elected officials alike. The staff and service at the Maryland Inn was superb as politicians got a chance to meet with important figures in Baltimore and ostensibly Maryland's labor movement.

Local presidents such as John Ripley (BCFPE), Karen Pilecki (BCFPHN), Maria Mathias (MPEC), Yvonne Rice (CUB), and Marietta English (AFT Maryland and BTU) were in attendance. Conversation around serious political issues were minimal but leaders were able to alert the elected officials as to issues labor would be focused on during this year's legislative session.

In addition to the aforementioned leaders present, also in attendance was AFT-Maryland Secretary-Treasurer Kenya Campbell  as well as a number of executive board members of the aforementioned unions.

Thank you to all the elected officials who attended including Sen. Bill Ferguson, Sen. Catherine Pugh, Sen. James Rosapepe, Sen. Robert Cassilly, Sen. James Mathias, Sen. Anthony Muse, Sen. Ron Young, Del. Clarence Lam, Del. Charles Sydnor, Del. Deborah Rey, Del. Patrick Young, Del. Cheryl Glenn, Del. Cory McCray, and Del. Mary Washington.

A special thank you is necessary for amazing staff of the Maryland Inn for making the evening such a wonderful night.
