Delegate Cheryl Glenn announced earlier this week her resignation from the General Assembly. She has not given a reason for her departure. As reported by the Baltimore Sun,
Glenn, 68, was elected to the House of Delegates in 2006 and has been a leading proponent of marijuana for medical use. She also held the position of chairwoman of the city of Baltimore’s delegation to the House.
Before entering politics, Glenn worked in union and labor issues, including serving as a personnel officer for the city’s school system in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as working as a lobbyist for the city teachers’ union from 1997 until 2003.
Glenn is the fifth delegate to resign since the end of the last General Assembly session in April.
