Our county lost a legend recently. Former Rep. Marjorie Holt was an icon whose legacy continues to reverberate here in Anne Arundel County. For 14 years, she diligently served the Fourth District with honor and distinction, worked shamelessly across the aisle, and cared deeply for Maryland and specifically Anne Arundel County.

Marjorie’s election helped break a longstanding glass ceiling for women in our county. As the first Republican woman from Maryland elected to Congress, she blazed a trail from Shady Side to Brooklyn Park that Anne Arundel women leaders have followed for decades.

Marjorie will always be someone who took time to sit down and meet with me when I first considered running for the House of Delegates and for county executive. She was a rare leader who understood both how to campaign effectively and how to govern effectively. That is an idea that all the leaders in Washington, D.C., should consider.

I will forever be grateful for her advice, encouragement and insight. Decades out of office, Marjorie Holt still understood what was important to citizens in Severna Park, Arnold, Pasadena and Annapolis. Moreover, she understood the reason to run for public office: to serve your community to the best of your ability.
