It's hard to believe, but this year's campaign season is in full swing: the primary election is on June 24, 2014 and the General election is on November 4, 2014. After two terms in the Maryland House of Delegates, I have announced that I am running for the Maryland State Senate.
With your help, we have been able to accomplish so much in the district -- including hundreds of millions of dollars of investments in new schools and community centers, enhanced parks, and historic investments in environmental clean-up. Just last year, I helped lead the charge in securing hundreds of thousands of dollars for projects that will commemorate our community's role in the War of 1812, funding a building that will help several nonprofits working with youth and families in the district, and millions more towards a housing initiative that will continue to grow and strengthen our historic communities. All the while, I have continued to fight in Annapolis for the working class values that were instilled in me as a child.
While we have accomplished a lot, there remains more important work to be done. That is why I am running for the state Senate: to continue fighting for more meaningful jobs, better schools, safer streets, and a cleaner environment.
I invite you to join me and the rest of "Team O" in this important effort!
Delegate John Olszewski, Jr.
Candidate for State Senate -- District 6

J.T. Smith, executive director of the Brewers Association of Maryland, said growlers are great for people interested in trying craft beers, some of which may only be available on tap.
"Growlers act as vessels to allow those enthusiasts a little bit greater access to be able to enjoy, sample and taste craft beer," Smith said.
"People are really interested in trying these different craft beers," said Jack Milani of the ...
