The following letters were received from the office of Del. J.B. Jennings:
An Open Letter to the Residents of Legislative District 7
The Legislative Session officially began its first, full week in Annapolis. It has been an honor to serve as one of your delegates from the District 7 since I was elected in 2002. I have tried to represent the residents of my district with honor and integrity. I truly believe that the General Assembly’s purpose is to provide citizens of the state with a voice in hoe their government is run. Maryland Delegates and Senators in both parties really do embody the term “citizen-legislators”.
There are important issues being discussed by lawmakers representing the State of Maryland. Some of these important issues will be addressed in the House Judiciary Standing Committee, for which I am now a member. Despite being on a different Standing Committee, I will continue to look closely at every bill that comes before me and vote with my conscience while keeping in mind the wishes of my constituents.
We have bill hearings every day on the whole gamut of issues. The public is free to testify on any bill. If you would ever like to testify, please let me know and I can help facilitate your legislative testimony.
If you are interested in visiting Annapolis and seeing what takes place here, I would be honored to have you as my guest. Visitors can be given tours of the State Capitol, the House and Senate Office Buildings and the Legislative Support Offices. My staff and I are eager to hear your questions, comments, and complaints as well. We would love to see you here in Annapolis. The drive is about an hour from our district, and out state capital is beautiful even in the winter. If you are interested in visiting us, call my Annapolis office at (410) 841-3698. I commute quite often so we could ever carpool together if you like, just give me a call.
Again, it has been an honor to be in the House of Delegates these past 7 years and I look forward to doing whatever I can to serve the citizens of District 7 and the State of Maryland.
