Mary Beth Carozza wins Md. State Senate seat for District 38
MARYLAND – In what some are calling an “upset”, Delegate Mary Beth Carozza beat incumbent Senator Jim Mathias in a very close race for Maryland’s District 38 Senate seat.
“I’ll tell you, it’s going to be what I’ve been doing is to be a strong voice for the people of District 38,” said Del. Carozza after learning the results from Election Day.
“I’m very pleased with the fact and I’m thankful, to our citizenry for this opportunity. And when we look around at what we’ve done together, I’m proud of that,” said Sen. Mathias on Election Night.
“I appreciate the fact that he has been in public service for many years and I think that should be recognized, as well. So with that my message would be one of appreciation for his public service,” said Del. Carozza.
This is the first time Carozza will be taking public office as a state Senator. But her first line of business isn’t so different from what she worked for as a Delegate.
“I’m really looking forward to continuing to work on increasing jobs in this area, increasing our economic activity so that more of our young people not only go to school here but then opt to stay here and work and raise their families here so that will always be my first priority,” said Carozza.
Representing and honoring the women of Delmarva is also a priority for Carozza.
“You know, as far as being you know a woman leader in the state of Maryland, that means a lot to me. But it should mean even more to the girls and young women that are coming up and I will continue to do my best to be a good role model for them,” said Carozza.
