Delegate Warren Miller (District 9A - representing Carroll & Howard Counties) posted the following today:
After Seventeen great years serving as a Delegate in the Maryland General Assembly. I have decided to resign effective December 31st. I have many happy memories and hope to stay involved in Maryland politics.
I have decided that Reid Novotny would make an excellent replacement for District 9A and he has my full support to replace me in this position.
Here is the text from the letter sent to Governor Hogan:
After proudly serving for seventeen years in the Maryland House of Delegates, I have decided that it is time to refocus my efforts on my professional career. From the time of my appointment by Gov Robert Ehrlich, I have had a successful and rewarding tenure as a Delegate. I have truly cherished the opportunity to represent the residents of Maryland Legislative District 9A (Carroll & Howard Counties). Serving my constituents on prominent issues and voting their values have been cornerstones of my legislative career.
I was fortunate to sponsor the legislation that created the State’s funding transparency website. I collaborated with many community groups over concerns regarding safety issues for Maryland Route 32. I am satisfied that these efforts led to the dualization of Route 32 Recently, I was fortunate to work with Senator Ben Kramer in the creation of the Maryland Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.
I am hopeful that my replacement will bring new energy and vigor to my vacant position and continue to advocate for fiscal sanity and to protect Maryland Small Business from harmful laws and regulations.
My resignation is effective end of the day, December 30, 2020.
Warren E Miller, State Delegate, District 9A
I have been a long time fan of Delegate Miller and I an sure many will miss him serving in office.
I will have more about his suggested replacement (Reid Novotny) in an article in the near future.
