Gov. Larry Hogan approved lawyer Marlon Amprey on Wednesday to succeed Nick Mosby in the Maryland House of Delegates.
Amprey won the nomination for Mosby’s former seat by a 4-3 vote last week by the Baltimore City Democratic State Central Committee. He will fill the House seat in the state’s 40th Legislative District, which encompasses neighborhoods in West and Southwest Baltimore. Mosby resigned the seat this month, halfway through a four-year term, when he became president of the Baltimore City Council.
“I am confident that Marlon Amprey will be a strong advocate for constituents in Baltimore City in his new role as delegate,” the Republican governor said in a news release. “I offer him my sincere congratulations, and will work with him to change Maryland for the better.”
In an interview with The Baltimore Sun last week, Amprey said his goal is to “empower and improve the lives of as many people as possible.”
Amprey attended the University of Maryland, where he studied government and politics. He went on to earn an education degree from George Mason University, a certificate of business management from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania, according to his LinkedIn profile. He’s an associate at the law firm Cole Schotz.
