Van Hollen suited to replace Mikulski
With all of the craziness of the presidential campaign, it was a breath of fresh air when Chris Van Hollen (D) recently visited Charles County to meet with voters and talk about what’s important to Maryland families. He has a long track record of getting results, with a laser focus on boosting local economies, improving schools, expanding workforce training, and supporting our veterans and seniors.
While he was here, he and Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-Md., 5th) spoke with the Charles County Chamber of Commerce’s Militar y Alliance Council about the importance of Naval Support Facility Indian Head to our local economy and national security. He also met with local business and community leaders to discuss the importance of working together on critical issues to our county.
Van Hollen’s message was clear: the most important job of a U.S. senator is to make sure the government works for our families, not special interests. I couldn’t agree more. And by making it a priority to visit ever y county and jurisdiction in Mar yland, it’s clear that he knows that the success of our state depends on the health of ever y single area.
It’s easy to be discouraged in this era of divisive politics and partisan obstruction. But there is too much at stake in this important election. During his years of public ser vice, Van Hollen has fought for Mar yland families — that’s why Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) has endorsed him to succeed her.
