The MSBA monitors hundreds of bills each session and advocates on behalf of the profession. The ability to make a difference in Annapolis is just one of the many reasons we need all attorneys to belong to the MSBA to ensure we remain a strong and vibrant association.
Please join the MSBA as we welcome Craig J. Zucker, a Democratic state senator from Maryland’s 14th District (D – Montgomery County). He’ll provide an update on this year’s legislative session, his personal and professional background and road to Annapolis, and how to stay involved and connect with legislators.
In the 2020, Sen. Zucker became Chairman of the Senate Democratic Caucus, after having served as Deputy Majority Leader. He serves on the powerful Budget and Tax Committee, where he chairs the Education, Business, and Administration. In this capacity, Sen. Zucker reviews the budgets of all higher education institutions in the state and ensures that tuition remains affordable. He also serves as Vice-Chair of the Capital Budget Subcommittee which helps invest in our local arts, cultural and historical landmarks.
Prior to his election to the House of Delegates, Sen. Zucker spent more than fifteen years as a dedicated public servant. Most recently he served as Deputy Chief of Staff to the Maryland State Comptroller, where he worked directly with Maryland’s legislators, executive branch, and community and business leaders across the state. Before that, he was Director of Maryland Home Care for an association, helping to improve the lives of the more than 5,000 underpaid home healthcare workers throughout Maryland by securing their first wage increase in nearly two decades.
We welcome all legal professionals to join, particularly those in Montgomery County.
