Lexington Park, MD – This isn’t Matt Morgan’s first trip around the campaign circuit. The Republican incumbent is currently in the midst of seeking re-election to the Maryland House of Delegates in District 29A in the 2018 General Election.
Since his election in 2014, the native Southern Marylander has shown commitment to his constituents by fighting to lower state taxes while helping balance the state’s budget. Morgan’s efforts along with statewide support helped create a record number of jobs and create a state funding surplus of over $500 million in Fiscal Year 2018.
Among Morgan’s various roles, he has played a major part in representing Southern Maryland on the House Health and Government Committee. He has worked to improve costs and various problems plaguing the individual healthcare market. Additionally, Morgan has grilled into Gubernatorial Candidate Ben Jealous’ idea of Healthcare-for-All, saying it would cause an “exodus of doctors from the state of Maryland” while raising the state’s budget by at least 50 percent.
Although Morgan mentioned additional funding would be appreciated, he has applauded the amount of state support that has recently gone into local and regional transportation projects such putting a roundabout in Clements and repaving roads in northern St. Mary’s County. He has also mentioned his efforts to lower taxes on gas that have struggled to get traction in the House.
Morgan has talked about the struggles he has faced and the importance of growing the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center to improve and diversify the local economy. He has helped to secure record state funding for education in St. Mary’s County, and with a child of his own in the public school system, he puts a great emphasis on improving school safety.
Recently, Morgan visited the offices and studio of TheBayNet.com to talk about his re-election campaign. His goal of seeking solutions for Southern Maryland are discussed in the video.
