Delegate Barnes

December 2015


I can’t believe it’s been a year already!  We’ve accomplished a lot, but still have much to do.  For now,  I encourage you to reflect on this season of giving, family, and peace.

From my family and staff, I wish you a joyous holiday season and prosperous New Year.  I look forward to serving in 2016.

Yours in service,

Delegate Darryl Barnes, D25

On behalf of the District 25 Team, thank you for supporting the 1st Annual District 25 Holiday Party & Toy Drive for the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital

December 9 – December 11 2015

When I decided to run for office, I knew there would always be core issues that I would also fight for – education, economic opportunities for small business and criminal justice reform.  During the 2016 Legislative Session, I will be introducing at least three pieces of legislation in the following areas:

  • Felony Expungment of Non-Violent Convictions – The State is beginning to acknowledge the impact felony convictions has on quality of life.  Marylanders who demonstrate a commitment to stay crime free, for an extended period of time, should have a pathway to felony expungement.
  • Prohibiting Human Trafficking in the Bodyworks Industry – Local governments throughout the State of Maryland are doing a great job of combating human trafficking in our communities.  As body works establishments do not fall under the State definition of a massage parlor, yet provide similar services, they are able to circumvent required licensing and regulation.
  • PG 412-16 – Property Tax Deferrals for the Elderly & Disabled – Sponsored in partnership with Senator Ulysses Currie, 412-16 was drafted to provide financial relief to seniors and the disabled through a property tax deferral program.
