State Rep. Michael A. DiMassa has announced he is once again, asking for the support of voters in the 116th District in his race for re-election. He plans to seek the Democratic nomination for the legislative seat for a second time.
On Wednesday, Feb. 7, DiMassa began his second year with the opening of the legislative session for his second year. He is assigned to the Appropriations, Public Safety, and will be returning to the Executive Nominations Committee as Vice-Chair.
“The best way to serve my constituency is to be present in Harford, work diligently in my committees and with my fellow state representatives and senators to address, head on, the issues of the state. I will continue to reach out to the residents I represent to ensure that I am bringing their issues with me as we work through this next session.” DiMassa was strong in his support of his home district by securing $1.5m in funding for Allingtown work that is needed, including a major sewer issue. In addition, he refused to take his salary, starting in September, until a budget was worked out in the last extended session.
Among the bills DiMassa is introducing this session are HB05388, an act concerning a Fair Minimum HB05421, an act adopting the interstate compact to elect the President of the United States by national popular vote, and SB00321, an act stabilizing Working Families by limiting “on call” shift scheduling.
While the primary for the 116th race is not until Aug. 14, DiMassa plans to hit the ground running with his campaign. For more information, please contact Kathleen Hendricks, Campaign Manager.
