Del. J.B. Jennings, a Republican representing the Eastern Baltimore and Western Harford County District 7, announced recently his intentions to run for state senate.
Jennings said this week he has been “very fortunate in my achievements in the House of Delegates for the past seven years and I wish to continue that success in the State Senate.”
“Filling Senator Andy Harris’ shoes is no easy task and the next Senator will have to provide sound leadership, reliability, and exhibit the same conservatism that defines our future Congressman,” he added.
Here is a press release from his office:
An Evening with Delegate J.B. Jennings
Despite being held during the M.A.Co. Conference in Ocean City, Maryland, it was an unforgettable evening shared by all at the Maryland Polo Club located in Monkton, Maryland on August 14, 2009.
Delegate J.B. Jennings of the Seventh (7th) Legislative District, hosted his Eighth (8th) Annual “Polo Match” Fundraiser. People who attended the event were treated to an old fashion barbeque dinner followed by a live polo match.
Delegate Jennings described the event as “a success on multiple levels.” He further stated that, “the evening allowed folks from the seventh district and I to come together, face-to-face, to discuss state and local issues concerning them and at the same time enjoy a summer evening of food and fun.”
The most memorable moment occurred when Delegate Jennings announced his candidacy for State Senate for the 7th Legislative District. During his announcement, he said, “I have been very fortunate in my achievements in the House of Delegates for the past seven years and I wish to continue that success in the State Senate.”
He further stated, “filling Senator Andy Harris’ shoes is no easy task and the next Senator will have to provide sound leadership, reliability, and exhibit the same conservatism that defines our future Congressman. I believe that I can fulfill these tasks, and perhaps not measure up to Andy, but to be the closest possible—preserving the conservative legacy, maintaining the seat, and building our party.”
Delegate Jennings wishes to thank everyone who attended the event and all those who made contributions. A special recognition to those who assisted Delegate Jennings in the preparation of the fundraiser, their dedication, care, and time allowed for this year’s event to be one of the most successful and memorable.
