So you want to contact your legislators

I know, I want to contact your Senators and Delegates but don't know how to. Well, good news! The friendly folks from CURB are here to help!

First, the simplest way to discover who represents you in the Maryland General Assembly (MGA) is to go the MDArchives run website and type in your address and city and the information will pop up with the name of the Senators and Delegates who represent you. Pretty cool huh? It gets better. If you click on the name you get their contact page pop up with all the information you need!

Just for the record, we are ALL represented here in Maryland by Governor Martin O'Malley and Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown.

In your letter, fax or phone call emphasize why a bottle bill is good for Maryland and try to include how it will affect you. Don't forget to make sure that your representative knows that you are a voting resident in their district! If you need help writing a letter, formulating a phone call or would like a form we have been handing out email us at

Finally, our bill has 18 Sponsors (1 Main Sponsors and 17 Co-Sponsors). If you live in their district make sure to give them a pat on the back and a big THANK YOU for their support.
They are:

Delegate Peter A. Hammen, District 46 - SPONSOR
Delegate Saqib Ali, District 39
Delegate Ben Barnes, District 21
Delegate Kumar P. Barve, District 17 - HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER
Delegate Eric M. Bromwell, District 8
Delegate Frank M. Conaway, Jr., District 40
Delegate Guy Guzzone, District 13
Delegate Tom Hucker, District 20
Delegate Anne R. Kaiser, District 14
Delegate Stephen W. Lafferty, District 42
Delegate Heather Mizeur, District 20
Delegate Dan K. Morhaim, District 11
Delegate Doyle L. Niemann, District 47
Delegate John A. Olszewski, Jr., District 6
Delegate Craig L. Rice, District 15
Delegate Samuel I. Rosenberg, District 41
Delegate Todd Schuler, District 8 - A EXTRA BIG THANKS FOR ALL OF HIS HELP SO FAR
Delegate Jay Walker, District 26

Keep making noise!!
