On Senate Leadership

Friends,

Today on my campaign blog I have explained the implications and effects of leadership roles in the Maryland State Senate, and have shown how these roles when combined with the money and power of lobbyists have undermined the representation in the 43rd District.  Find out more at WWW.TORRESMARYLAND.COM

Who does Joan Carter Conway really represent?

Friends,

In today’s blog post I dive deeper into campaign finance, find out who Senator Conway really represents at WWW.TORRESMARYLAND.COM

Suspect Campaign Finance

Friends,

Please check out my post at WWW.TORRESMARYLAND.COM on the LLC loophole.  See how flaws in Maryland’s campaign finance laws are enabling powerful interests to buy more than their share of influence in Annapolis- even in the 43rd.

Wine Legislation: Last Night’s Debate

Friends,

Those of you who attended the Northside Baptist Church last night for the debate between Senator Conway and myself got more than you bargained for- including Conway calling me a liar, and berating members of the audience.  Here’s the full scoop on the wine legislation- I am following up because the Senator’s theatrics last night may have made my explaining of the issue difficult to here…details are on my blog at  WWW.TORRESMARYLAND.COM

Also, please “like” my Facebook page so I can keep you informed…things are heating up!

Thanks!

On Crime

Friends,

Yesterday I addressed some of the recent crime in and around the district, and noted the implications of such crime on the overall health of the City.  I hope to apply my 29 years of public safety experience to this crippling problem. Read my blog at WWW.TORRESMARYLAND.COM to see how I think I can best address crime and promote the overall health of the district as your State Senator!
