She puts our community first and has led the charge on significant legislation in Maryland. She is the epitome of a public servant and will serve as a great representative to District 23."

MD State Delegate Marvin E. Holmes (D-23)

“I have known Jocelyn for many years and have watched her grow to be an extraordinarily hard worker, with an intellect and eagerness to pursue Maryland political policy. She has worked within the Maryland General Assembly assisting Delegates in preparing legislation and testimony for many years. I was impressed to watch her lead the Tobacco 21 campaign in 2019, which asked for an increase in the age of tobacco product sales to the age of 21. It became law in October of that same year. She is ready, and I wholeheartedly embrace her candidacy as a Delegate for District 23 in the Maryland House of Delegates.”
