OXON HILL, MD - Maryland Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards (D-4th District) announced her bid for re-election this past weekend during her annual holiday party. In remarks where the 53-year-old legislator was surrounded by long-time friends and supporters, she highlighted the need to continue focusing on job creation, hold CEOs accountable, protect Social Security and Medicare from Republican cuts, and increase college loans for working families.
"I look forward to continuing to work and fight every single day for the residents of Maryland's 4th Congressional District," said Edwards. "Since being elected, I am proud to have held insurance companies accountable, defended Social Security and Medicare, secured $38 million for our district to invest in job creation, and ensured that millions of Maryland students receive after-school suppers," she continued. "But there is a lot more work to be done. I will continue to advocate for strong proposals to create jobs, invest in our nation's infrastructure, protect our environment and the Chesapeake Bay, and give our children the education they need to compete in a 21st Century, global economy."
