Senator Madaleno is Montgomery County’s budgetary wizard who translates the progressive priorities of our delegation every day into the dollars and cents of the state budget.
Since being elected to office, Rich has succeeded in passing vital legislation on economic, education, environmental and transportation issues. He is recognized as the “go-to expert” on budget issues.
There are very few people who understand the state’s budgets and its impact on real people as he does and there are even fewer who can make those budget issues make sense to ordinary people.
He is an expert in tax and budget matters and a pioneer in bringing marriage equality to Maryland, and he has been a force in keeping college affordable.
Madaleno has become a one-man truth squad. No one in the legislature has so consistently questioned the governor’s policies and the arguments behind them – especially on fiscal matters.
Montgomery County Democrat Richard S. Madaleno Jr., is known primarily as the Senate’s fiscal expert, a respected lawmaker with a mastery of the budget, a winning personality.
