Delegate Glass offers perspective on just-ended legislative session [Letter]

It is a great honor to serve as your delegate. My goal is to ensure that our district is provided dedicated service. Although the over 80 new taxes, fees and now, the bathroom bill can be grueling to combat, I will not compromise our shared values.

As you know, I have been fighting for our right to opt out of smart meters. Through our bipartisan fight, along with, the Public Service Commission has permitted all Marylanders the right to opt out; leading to the highest opt out rate in the country.


I, like many others, have been a victim to the blatant disregard of common courtesy shown by the utility companies and their installers. Delegate Haddaway, of District 37B, has convinced the Chairmen to write a letter to the PSC, requesting a justification for the excessive opt out and monthly fees. We must take a stand.

This session, I voted against the bathroom bill that will allow men, who think they are women, to use the girl's bathroom. I will help bring this to a referendum.


I also voted against the skyrocketing budget because it has increased by another $2 billion. My pro-life views cannot support a budget that would fund abortions or a budget that forces citizens to pay even more in taxes. Furthermore, I am against giving raises to legislators when most citizens have not seen a raise in years.

In addition, I cosponsored medical marijuana and the fetal pain bill that would prohibit abortions in the third trimester unless the life of the mother is in jeopardy.

My town hall meeting will be Saturday, April 19, 12-1:30 p.m. at the Aberdeen Library. If you are unable to attend, there will be another town hall meeting Saturday June 21, from 12-1:30 p.m. also at the Aberdeen Library.

I encourage everyone to attend.
