With over 30 years of experience as a Natural Resources Police Officer, Senator Bailey understands the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland’s natural resources play an important role in Maryland’s economic future.

Economic Development

District 29 is incredibly diverse and is home to not only many historical sites but also a thriving Naval Base, many generational watermen and significant Amish and Mennonite communities. Senator Bailey has ensured that each of these groups are consistently well represented in Annapolis by safeguarding funds for them to receive their fair share of resources and that our local economic drivers are able to thrive.

Issues of Local Significance

Many concerns that impact St. Mary’s and Calvert Counties must be handled at the State level; Senator Bailey believes in supporting the best interests of his constituents which is why he has been vocal in Annapolis about local control of zoning issues, giving local authority in many situations and establishing various commissions that will receive state support.
