By Authority: Supporters of Brenda Thiam : Amanda Miller, Treasurer
Our state government should be focused on rising the quality of life for all Marylanders while attempting to lower the cost of living in Maryland. That very balance is the key to Maryland's future prosperity. That's economic state leadership.
In these times of hyper partisanship, meeting the opposition in the middle for the purpose of helping your constituents is likely seen by some as a revolutionary act. The perfect should not be the enemy of the good in matters of Maryland public policy. That's efficient state leadership.
Brenda Thiam understands that a child's education is an investment in the future. As taxpayers, parents have a reasonable expectation that their tax dollars should go directly to education and not to further a private agenda for special interests.

Brenda Thiam buys her families groceries. She buys her own prescriptions and plans for her family's budget. Brenda understands that inflation has meant that many families are living paycheck to paycheck now. Brenda has led the efforts in the State House to reduce the tax on gasoline to help working families.
Brenda Thiam gets that families in Hagerstown work hard to provide for themselves and should see results driven approaches in their state government. A high standard of living is essential for any community that wants real prosperity and the charms of easy living. She envisions a Hagerstown like that.
