The Shore Should Be Proud Have Sheriff Mike Lewis Represent Us In Washington

It is truly a great thing to have a representative like Sheriff Mike Lewis in Washington DC for the swearing in of President Donald Trump. Mike Lewis is the text book example of our Eastern Shore way of life, Conservative, love God and Country and believe in our Constitution that makes this Country great. When I saw the Sheriff and 25 Deputies were going to be on hand doing security work for the inauguration I felt  a sense of pride knowing Mike is one of us.

Thank you Sheriff Lewis for being one of us, and making us all proud.

Road Rage Shooting Suspect Identified

Addie Eckardt Press Release

Governor Hogan Veto Overrides

Governor Hogan vetoed several key pieces of legislation last year. The Governor vetoed Senate Bill 921 – Clean Energy Jobs – Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard Revisions stating this legislation would be yet another tax increase to Marylanders. The additional burden imposed on Maryland ratepayers through utility costs was another reason the Governor decided to veto Senate Bill 921. The state of Maryland supports Clean Energy initiatives, but need to do so in a fiscally responsible way. The General Assembly is expected to vote on Governor Hogan’s override later this week. I fully support Governor Hogan’s veto, as this bill would increase taxes for Marylanders and prevent substantial job growth within the state.

Governor Hogan’s FY 2018 Budget
On Wednesday, Governor Hogan submitted the administration’s fiscal year 2018 budget. As promised, the governor developed a balanced budget that is fiscally responsible while not raising taxes or cutting services in the state of Maryland. For the third year in a row, the budget fully funds K-12 education. The administration has pledged to address the growing heroin and opioid crisis in Maryland and nationwide. This budget contains $1.3 billion for mental health and substance abuse services and $4 million to help the state’s work with those struggling with addiction.

Prescription Drug Prices Rise
Rapid increased costs for EpiPens statewide has sparked an interesting debate regarding prescription drug prices. Prices for some necessary prescription drugs have escalated making it extremely difficult for Marylanders to afford. Lawmakers, with the support of Attorney General, will introduce legislation that requires pharmaceutical companies to reveal the basis for drug prices. Another piece of legislation would authorize the Attorney General to sue drug makers for price gouging. The price for EpiPens and some prescription drug prices needs to be addressed for all Marylanders. We will be following this issue closely.

New Legislation that I have co-sponsored

Public Senior Higher Education Institutions – Financial Aid – Reduction Restrictions – Senator Young Tax Overpayment – Interest on Refunds - Senator Bates Income Tax - Subtraction Modification - Military Retirement Income - Senator Sallings Alcoholic Beverages – Definition of Beer – Hard Cider - Senator Ready Labor and Employment – Labor Organizations – Right to work Act - Senator Ready Environment – Water and Sewer Plan Approval - Senator Ready

Road Rage Shooting In Wicomico County

Sheriff Mike Lewis Headed To Trump Inuaguration

Tonight, I'm experiencing a lot of emotions as I prepare for this week's 2017 Presidential Inauguration. Dozens of Wicomico County Sheriff's Deputies will be deploying to Washington D.C. where we will join thousands of other proud and hardworking law enforcement officers from across the country in providing security during President-Elect Donald J. Trump's official swearing-in ceremony.
However, I'm concerned for our country, the United States of America. I'm concerned for our future as tens of thousands of obstructionists descend on our nation's capitol to repudiate this sacred and historic moment.
These aren't peaceful demonstrators who wish only to be heard. These are disgruntled, disappointed, and intolerant disciples of the far left who refuse to accept the fact that Donald J. Trump is our newly elected president, and one who will restore law and order in this country. No! They've made their mission clear. They intend to do whatever is necessary to disrupt the smooth transition of power.
The latest Intelligence information suggest that local law enforcement will be targeted by these protestors/combatants throughout the parade route. I assure you, the men and women of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office will be on the frontline of Pennsylvania Avenue representing what's best in America.
Chief Deputy Gary Baker and I will stand shoulder to shoulder with our deputies to ensure this smooth transition. I'm not requesting preferential prayers for my men and women, just prayers for all those who will be in attendance, and for those on the frontline providing security, including Wicomico's Finest.
We are packed and prepared to be in D.C. for several days. Below, the beautifully crafted Inaugural badge, special ordered for this presidential inauguration, and worn with immense pride by Wicomico County Sheriff's Deputies assigned to this presidential detail, was designed by the men and women of our office.
God bless the United States of America, And god bless the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office!!!

Carl Anderton Weekly Wrap Up

Back in Session, Working for You
The 437th Legislative Session in Maryland commenced on Wednesday, January 11th. It is great to be back in Annapolis with my fellow colleagues and I am looking forward to a productive session.
For those of you who have not heard, Bunky Luffman, who worked in the office from my first day, has taken a position in the Governor’s office. However, our intern from last session BrittanyFinamore, has stepped up to fill the position. Our intern this session is Jacob Lutz, a student at Salisbury University.
I have retained my place on the Environment and Transportation Committee and the environment subcommittee, however, I have moved from the local government subcommittee to the transportation subcommittee this session. Having these assignments will allow me to push helpful transportation legislation and fight against bills that would attempt to over regulate our farmers.
This legislation session is going to be extremely busy, so we have been working on preparing bills and meeting with colleagues. Two of the bills I will submit would restore highway user revenues and allow residents of Wicomico County to deer hunt on the second Sunday of the deer firearms season on private property.
Highway User Revenues
I am submitting two bills that will restore municipal and county highway user revenues. This would not only assist the current needs of road maintenance but it would also establish a long-term source of funding for future transportation projects without any tax increases.
The two proposed bills will allow my colleagues to come together and decide which method is the best at tackling this ongoing issue. The first bill would use a fixed amount each year and the second would set a percentage amount.
Sunday Deer Hunting
Wicomico County has asked the County Delegation to propose legislation that will extend deer hunting on private property to the second Sunday during the deer firearms season in Wicomico County.
Deer hunting is a time-honored family tradition on Delmarva and is often passed down from one generation to the next. With successful passage of this bill, we would be able to gain an extra day for everyone to participate.

The coming week is highlighted by our celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr Day and the release of Governor Hogan’s budget. Things will start to become more hectic as the committee meetings begin.
As always, if you would like to contact us with an idea, issue, or concern, please either call: 410-841-3431 or email
We look forward to hearing from you!
