I am Charles E. Sydnor III and I’m proud to be your senator for District 4. Thanks for visiting my website.  I firmly believe that we make better decisions when everyone is engaged and informed.  This website is my effort to engage and inform you about what our government is doing.   This website is designed to help you to engage me and your other government officials and to follow my work on your behalf.  Additionally, this website is intended to allow me to do a better job for you during my time in office.  We want to demystify the government for you and empower you to participate in the decisions that are being made on your behalf.

This website provides a variety of information about what your government is doing on your behalf as well as contact information so that you may let your voice be heard.  Additionally we have a contact page for you to interact with my office so that we may provide you constituent service. By way of example, if you have some need of a state agency, whatever your state issue may be, you’re going to be able to obtain help by using this website. 

Additionally, there is information about the various communities and the associations which exist to represent them, as well as a District 44 Community Calendar.  You may use this calendar to inform the District about events around the District.  District 44 is home to beautiful Patapsco State Park as well as other parks you’ll discover on this website.

If you’re planning a trip to Annapolis with a school group or your family, we want to be able to help organize a tour of your state capitol! You can do that on our website.  Also for those of you planning to attend college, when available, you will be able to obtain a scholarship application for the upcoming school year.

To be even more engaged, I ask that you sign up on this website. I also encourage you to follow me on Twitter and like Senator Charles E. Sydnor III on Facebook to receive more frequent updates of what I am doing. It’s a place where you can keep track of our activities, and find updates regarding what we’re working on as well as the issues we are addressing. You can also sign up to volunteer.  Finally, I urge you to sign up to receive our monthly update by email. Our newsletter tells you what we’re working on, what we’ve done, and what we plan to do.

I appreciate hearing from my constituents, whether you are asking for help resolving a problem with a state agency, or you just want to share your ideas about good government. Many of the bills I sponsor stem from conversations with constituents on the everyday issues they face, and I encourage you to contact me with any ideas you have.

Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for your having elected me to represent you in Annapolis.  I’m truly honored and privileged to be your State Senator.  I look forward to working to better our community by serving the people!

Building Coalition on Important Issues

Last month, I joined fellow members of the Maryland Black Caucus in a meeting with Governor Larry Hogan to discuss several issues of significance to District 44 and communities throughout the state. Education, public safety, and transportation are just a few of the topics we broached, but they are all part of a continuing conversation of how the state can work with constituents and elected officials to improve quality of life for all Marylanders.

A Busy Season of Advocacy

The last few weeks have been an exciting period for me, as I began my new work as a member of the state senate, and continue my advocacy for Baltimore City and Baltimore County residents on important issues facing our communities.

I've been fortunate to serve as a sponsor or co-sponsor on a number of bill proposals, and I've placed particular emphasis on legislation to help our community associations have greater leverage in addressing nuisance properties, limiting the use of cell site simulators in police surveillance tactics, helping to redefine shared child custody standards and new protections for juvenile offenders.

Honoring Dr. King

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged us to challenge society’s ills with a ‘divine dissatisfaction.’ He wrote “Let us be dissatisfied until slums are cast into the junk heaps of history, and every family is living in a decent sanitary home.”
