Senator Glassman stated, “I am looking forward to serving on Maryland’s Commission on Small Business as we definitely need to grow jobs in the State of Maryland and reduce the burdens on our local small businesses. I also want to bring my ideas for the State’s Agri-Businesses to the table also for support and future marketing.”
