Van Hollen will fight for Md. fam­i­lies

Times-Record - - News - FRANK L. MILLER Den­ton, Trea­surer, Car­o­line County Demo­cratic Cen­tral Com­mit­tee

With all of the crazi­ness of the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, it was a breath of fresh air when Chris Van Hollen re­cently vis­ited Car­o­line 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 vis­ited Car­o­line Sum­mer­fest in Den­ton with Mayor Abigail McNinch and me. We spoke with com­mu­nity lead­ers and res­i­dents about chal­lenges in their com­mu­ni­ties and Chris shared his ideas for cre­at­ing good pay­ing jobs in our area and mov­ing the state for­ward. He is com­mit­ted to rep­re­sent­ing the East­ern Shore in the U.S. Se­nate.

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 every county and ju­ris­dic­tion in Mar yland, it’s clear that he knows that the suc­cess of our state de­pends on the health of every 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 ser­vice, Van Hollen has fought for Mary­land fam­i­lies — that’s why Sen­a­tor Mikul­ski has en­dorsed him to suc­ceed her.
