I was sadden to hear of the passing of a true television icon for generations of Baltimoreans, Traffic Jam Jimmy. His love and dedication to the people of the Baltimore region will truly be missed.

I was proud to join @POTUS Biden today as he signed our bipartisan Lend-Lease Bill into law. The United States must do all we can to bolster Ukrainian defenses and deliver needed resources. Innocent lives and democracy are at stake; we must prevail.

No mother should be separated from her child on Mother’s Day because of China’s genocide. Yet Ziba Murat is again spending the day w/out her mother, Dr. Gulshan Abbas, one of countless Uyghur mothers abducted by the CCP. Her release, & that of all Uyghurs, is long overdue.…

The best gift for Mother's Day is enshrining equality under the law with the 28th Amendment. #ERANow
This National Women’s Health Week, let us all recommit to ensuring women have all the resources and care they need to stay healthy. This includes access to safe and legal abortion.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, including my wife Myrna. We are so grateful for the unconditional love and strength moms provide us every single day.
May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, & earlier this week one of the country’s highest-profile Asian American political leaders, my friend Sec. Norman Mineta, passed. Mineta broke barriers as mayor of San Jose & first Asian American to become a Cabinet sec.
On this day in 1945, German armed forces surrendered unconditionally in the west. I can't help but think about the atrocities occurring in Ukraine. It’s 2022, yet we are seeing mass graves like in the Holocaust again.
This low unemployment rate is a direct result of the #AmericanRescuePlan, widely available COVID vaccinations and @POTUS Biden’s commitment to build the economy from the bottom up and middle out.…
Teacher Appreciation Week may be drawing to a close, but we are continually grateful for the work that educators do every single day to provide future generations with knowledge and lifelong skills.
Today is the last day of Public Service Recognition Week. Thank you to all of our federal, state, county and local government employees who chose to serve their country in public service. #PSRW
In honor of #SmallBusinessWeek, I met with nearly 100 #GrowWithGoogle small business owners from across the U.S. to discuss how we can support their growth and boost our economy. I'm inspired by their tenacity and innovation.
Throughout the pandemic, workers across the country have supported their community. Now I am supporting them as they form their unions, including @acoreunion with the @MachinistsUnion and the Starbucks on N Charles St in Baltimore with the @SBWorkersUnited.

Congrats to @KJP46, it is well deserved. Exciting, history-making days lie ahead! @PressSec Jen Psaki, you have done a tremendous job. Thank you for helping to bring honesty and decency back to the White House. Thank you for your service to our country.…
We simply cannot let this opportunity pass us by. Instead, we in Congress must tap into and bolster the entrepreneurial spirit that is sweeping our nation to build a fair and more just economy for all.
The theme for national #SmallBusinessWeek this year is “Building a Better America through Entrepreneurship.” This could not be more fitting and it should serve as a clarion call for every member of Congress.

36 million women of reproductive age would be at risk if Alito's #RoeVWade opinion becomes the ruling of #SCOTUS, but low-income women will be the most affected. We must act now to pass the Women's Health Protection Act to protect reproductive rights in America.
May is Jewish American Heritage Month. As a proud Jewish American, I’m honored to acknowledge the contributions of our community. From tech innovations to promoting tolerance, Jewish Americans have fought tirelessly to realize the American Dream & enrich our society.
Norm Mineta co-founded the Congressional AAPI Caucus & transformed our nation’s aviation security post 9/11. In Congress, he fought for compensation for those who were detained in internment camps during WWII, among his many professional &personal achievements. He will be missed.
I am deeply saddened by the passing of former Commerce and DOT Secretary Norman Mineta. I was privileged to serve with him in the House of Representatives. He was an extraordinary public servant and civil rights champion.…
Teachers and educators make lifelong impacts. Ms. Eddie Brown was my @BaltCitySchools Garrison Jr. High English teacher who inspired me to learn. To this day Ms. Brown, and my wife Myrna, former @BaltCoPS teacher, are my two favorite teachers. #ThankATeacher | #TeachersDay
I stood on the Senate Steps with my @SenateDems colleagues to voice the need to protect access to safe and legal abortions. No level of government, whether federal, state or local, nor Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court, should interfere in personal health decisions.

Congress and @POTUS must take swift action to protect personal reproductive and health rights for Americans. From Maryland to Mississippi, Florida to Washington State, there should be a common standard for self-determination of health decisions for women and all individuals.
We are witnessing a historic rise in entrepreneurship. Americans registered a record setting 5.4 million new businesses last year. #SmallBiz continues to be the lifeblood of our national economy. Celebrate #SmallBusinessWeek by supporting a local small business near you.
Millie Bailey spent her life serving our country and communities in uniform and out. In the army, she broke barriers and served for the first time with an unsegregated unit. Thank you for your many years in service, Millie Bailey. Rest in Peace.
MD is mourning one of our trailblazers. Vivian "Millie" Bailey was an officer for the US Army, 1 of 2 Black women in her class of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. In 1970, she moved to Howard County where she became involved in local efforts and beloved member of the community.
This funding, distributed over the next 5 years, will benefit the Bay + the hundreds of thousands of Marylanders who rely on it for their livelihoods. It is one of MD’s most valuable economic + ecological resources + we must ensure it remains healthy for generations to come.  2/2

Wise people say the first rule of diplomacy is ‘when you are deep in a hole, stop digging.’ Yet Putin & Lavrov are doubling down on their lies about Nazis in Ukraine. #StandWithUkraine…
