From the office of State Sen. Nancy Jacobs:
State Senator Nancy Jacobs tells people gathered at Jad’s Caddy Shack in Essex today that she will run for Congress in the 2nd District against incumbent, Dutch Ruppersberger. Over the past few months Jacobs has been meeting with citizens and business owners across the district. After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback, she is convinced that voters are ready for a change.
As a former small business owner, Jacobs has fought burdensome tax hikes and regulations to help our small business community create jobs for all Marylanders. With gang violence on the rise, Jacobs worked hand-in-hand with community law enforcement to pass the first gang law in Maryland history.
As a mother and grandmother, Jacobs has repeatedly fought for our children cracking down on child sex offenders with Jessica’s Law that mandated long prison sentences for child sex offenders.
Voters want a representative who cares about their concerns and listens to their opinions. Nancy Jacobs’ strong history of constituent service will give her an edge against a Washington-insider incumbent who’s lost touch with the people back home.
With citizens struggling to pay their bills and find jobs, the politicians in Washington shouldn’t be running up the tab on the voter’s dime. Jacobs is committing to fixing what should be our nation’s top priority: job growth and getting our skyrocketing deficit in line. Pledging to work tirelessly for the people of the 2nd District, Jacobs plan to reach out to all citizens seeking their votes.
Nancy Jacobs has served in the House of Delegates, the Maryland Senate and as Senator Minority leader. She was recently named Senator of the Year by the Maryland State’s Attorney’s Association.
Here are a few of the elected officials who are endorsing Nancy Jacobs for Congress:
Bob Ehrlich: “Nancy is a leader who cares about her constituents. She is a tenacious fighter–but knows how to work across the aisle when needed. In these troubling times, she is the kind of competitor taxpayers need to shake up Congress.”
Harford County Executive David R. Craig: “Having worked with Senator Jacobs for many years, she is a common sense, honest, dedicated public servant who is not afraid to take on tough issues. She has worked hard for the citizens of Harford County in the General Assembly and truly cares about the people she represents.”
Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold: “I’ve known Nancy Jacobs for nearly two decades. She is committed to the people, community and country. That is just what the people of the second district deserve. In tough times, she will be able to get things done…I have no doubt about it. I’ve seen her work to reign in out of control spending, she’s strong on law enforcement, and she’s worked to create jobs. She’s a citizen lawmaker who gets through the partisan politics to get things done.”
