When and why did you first get involved in politics?
The first campaign I volunteered in was Joe Tydings Senate campaign in 1962. Beginning in elementary school, I have been interested in government and politics.
Why did you run for a seat in the House of Delegates?
My interest in government and politics and an incumbent delegate who was vulnerable, in part because of his votes on reproductive health care.
What are your top three issues you want to address if elected?
Protecting a woman's right to choose and a health care provider's ability to provide that care. Working with Governor Wes Moore on an optional Service Year after high school graduation. Redeveloping Pimlico Race Course to benefit the surrounding communities and the racing industry.
Wes Moore, Aruna Miller, Brooke Lierman and Anthony Brown are the three statewide Dems on the ballot. How can we make sure they get elected? Working with these outstanding candidates, I will urge my constituents to vote for them.
What is your opinion of the current state of the Republican Party?
Donald Trump's dominance of the Republican party is the result of decades of right-wing appeals that began with Barry Goldwater in 1964.
Favorite movie of all time and why?
The Marx Brothers in "A Day at the Races" We watch the movie every year at my Preakness party.
Favorite song of all time and why?
"My Girl" I was a student at City College.
Two most prized possessions?
An autographed photo of Senator John F. Kennedy. Norman Rockwell's drawing "Gee thanks, Brooks," autographed by Brooks Robinson
