Governor Hogan appointed Delegate Charles Sydnor as State Senator for district 44, representing the western parts of Baltimore County and of Baltimore City. Sydnor will finish the term of Shirley Nathan-Pulliam, who recently resigned due to health reasons.
As reported by Maryland Matters,
Sydnor is an attorney who was in his second term in the House of Delegates, serving on the Judiciary Committee. In the Senate, he’ll be assigned to the Judicial Proceedings Committee.
“Senator-Appointee Sydnor has been a dynamic leader surrounding issues of criminal justice and consumer protection, and we are excited to welcome him to the Senate,” incoming Senate President Bill Ferguson (D-Baltimore City) said in a statement.
