I am Charles E. Sydnor III and I’m proud to be one of your delegates for District 44B. 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 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 44B Community Calendar.  You may use this calendar to inform the District about events around the District.  District 44B 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 Delegate 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 Delegate.  I look forward to working to better our community by serving the people!

More than 35 years ago, residents in neighborhood watch programs nationwide decided to build awareness of their public safety efforts by establishing the National Night Out initiative. It started as an opportunity for citizens to interact with public safety officers and leaders in an effort to build more trust and participation in the concept of community policing. 

Today, the National Night Out program engages over 38 million citizens in 16,000 communities nationwide. Tonight it will be my great privilege to join National Night Out activities in a number of District 44B’s great communities. While social events surrounding National Night Out typically receive the most attention, this event is also an extraordinary opportunity for citizens to ask questions and to provide feedback on critical issues of community policing and relations with public safety officers. 

I am looking forward to working with leaders and stakeholders from each of these areas, as we convene neighbors and officers to determine ways to fortify great existing programs and partnerships aimed at positive community relations, and how to create new ones.

It is my great hope that you enjoyed the holiday weekend with your family friends. We all know the Fourth of July as a time to reflect upon and celebrate the formation of our great country, but I wanted to briefly share some interesting, lesser-known facts about our state’s role in the formation of the United States of America. 

Many know that Maryland and other colonies declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. Samuel Chase, William Paca, Thomas Stone, and Charles Carroll of Maryland signed the Declaration of Independence on behalf of the colony.  Before this declaration, an anonymous writer called Marylanders to action in the name of freedom. 

A self-described Friend to America wrote:

"The people are now loudly called upon to exercise their right of instructing their deputies in convention, in this very important matter, remembering, that discord in America, only can enslave it, and that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Let the people in the respective counties meet and draw up suitable instructions, for the careful observance of which, let their honor be pledged…. These crude hints are offered to your consideration, by a sincere friend to America."

sydnor-june1.pngMaryland made history last month ushering in a new Speaker for Maryland's House of Delegates!  After the untimely death of Speaker Michael Busch, a special session was called and held on May 1st.  Three delegates expressed interest in succeeding Speaker Busch and Baltimore County Delegate Adrienne Jones was elected as Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates!  I was honored to cast my vote for Speaker Jones.

While Speaker Jones is blazing a new trail as the state’s first woman Speaker and its first Black Speaker, Speaker Jones is not the first person in her family to blaze trails. On September 10, 1935, her aunt, Margaret Williams, and Lucille Scott traveled to Catonsville High School to gain admittance. They were met by Principal David Zimmerman who refused to admit the young ladies to Catonsville High because Baltimore County Public Schools prohibited blacks and whites from attending the same public schools.  The NAACP’s counsel, Thurgood Marshall, sued Baltimore County on their behalf in the case of Williams v. Zimmerman on their behalf and although Maryland’s Court of Appeals did not rule in their favor, the case was known as the second stone to Brown v. Board of Education.
