We must stop rising premiums and lower skyrocketing drug prices. The only solution for Maryland’s healthcare crisis is a Medicare-for-All System.

Before Governor Hogan took office, Maryland’s public schools were ranked first in the country for five years running. Now, under his leadership, we’ve slipped to fifth. As governor, I will reverse this trend by making sure we pay our teachers more, and force Annapolis to finally keep its promise to use all of the casino and lottery revenue to increase education spending, not replace money they’ve shifted to other priorities.
