The federal indictment of fellow Democrat Senator Ulysses Currie has elevated Howard County District 12 Senator Ed Kasemeyer to the chairmanship of the powerful Budget and Taxation Committee of the Maryland State Senate. Prior to Senator Curries legal troubles Ed served as the vice chair. The Budget and Taxation committee chair plays a key role in crafting the annual state budget and presumably any tax increases.
Mr. Ed’s District 12 “Legislative Team” includes Liz Bobo, Steve DeBoy and James Malone.
I noticed that from their website pictures, that team members, DeBoy and Malone both think it’s important to be shown sitting at their desks, heads down, like they are too busy to look up at the camera or something.
