From Del. Wayne Norman:
Today, Delegate Wayne Norman and Teresa Reilly, Vice Chair of the Harford County Republican Central Committee, announced their campaign for the Maryland Senate and House of Delegates, respectively. Norman and Reilly will run jointly in District 35, which encompasses parts of Cecil and Harford Counties.
Norman and Reilly made their announcement at Dove Valley Vineyards in Rising Sun before a group of supporters and elected officials. Attendees at the announcement included Senator Nancy Jacobs, who made introductions, Senate Minority Leader Ed Reilly, House Minority Whip Cathy Szlegia, Cecil County Executive Tari Moore, Harford County Executive David Craig, and several County Council persons from both Harford and Cecil Counties, amongst others.
Standing with his family, Norman said: “I will continue to champion conservative values in Annapolis; the same values that are prevalent along both sides of Susquehanna. A seat in the Senate will allow me to continue the tradition of conservative and effective leadership, following the great work of Nancy Jacobs and Barry Glassman.”
Reilly, who has been elected multiple times to the Republican Central Committee, was joined by her family. “I am a conservative through and through,” Reilly said. “I will be an effective voice in Annapolis. I love Cecil and Harford Counties and look forward to continuing my public service for the greater community.”
Upon learning of their announcement, David Craig, Republican Candidate for Governor, said: “I have known Wayne and Teresa for many years. They are dedicated public servants. I look forward to working with them in the Maryland Legislature.”
Norman is currently a Delegate representing District 35A. He is the Ranking Republican Member on the House Environmental Matters Committee, where he led the opposition to the Governor’s “rain tax”.
Reilly has been an elected Member of the Republican Central Committee since 2002. She has been a leader in voter registration efforts and was instrumental in making Harford County the largest jurisdiction in Maryland where registered Republicans outnumber Democrats.
