On the first day of Army training, I learned a mantra that now serves as the mission for our campaign: Leave no one behind. That’s how I intend to govern.

That’s the Maryland I want to create, and I’ll work tirelessly every day to get it done.

  3. Reduce the tax rate for families with incomes below the poverty line.
