Three members of Carroll's 11-member delegation — Del. Susan Krebs, R-District 5, Sen. Justin Ready, R-District 5, and Del. Trent Kittleman, R-District 9A — were in attendance for the annual Legislative Kick-Off Breakfast, sponsored by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and held at the Zigler Hospitality Center in New Windsor. Each expressed optimism that Republican down-ballot wins across the country, along with the election of Donald Trump and the leadership of Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, could lead to more conservative legislation in majority-Democrat Maryland.
