I am Charles E. Sydnor III and I’m proud to be your senator for District 44. 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  and like Senator Charles E. Sydnor III on  and  to receive more frequent updates of what I am doing. You can even subscribe to my YouTube channel.  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!

Charles Sydnor and Family During Covid

I hope you and your loved ones well and you are staying safe during this pandemic.  My office and I have been extremely busy responding to constituents on a myriad of issues related to the pandemic since session ended last March.  As you know, Senator Shirley Nathan Pulliam retired after more than two decades of service to the citizens of Maryland.  I submitted my name to be considered for appointment to serve out her term.  I was selected by the Governor and I was sworn in on the General Assembly’s opening day, January 8, 2020.  My selection would not have been possible without the outpouring of support. 

Upon entering the State Senate, I was appointed to serve on the Judicial Proceeding Committee (“JPR”), akin to the House’s Judiciary Committee on which I was privileged to serve.  JPR acts on legislation relating to constitutional amendments; corporations and associations; correctional facilities and services; criminal and civil laws, penalties, and procedures; family law; human relations; judicial administration and court structure; juvenile justice; law enforcement organizations; the legal profession; legal rights and immunities; public safety; real property, including landlord and tenant laws; trusts and estates; and vehicle laws, including drunk driving. 

While I was unable to send the 2020 End of Session letter at the time I generally would, nevertheless I am proud of the work done during the 2020 Session and encourage you to read my full letter about those effort and district highlights by clicking here.  I am continually honored by your support. Please stay safe and continue to wear those masks.

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.
