A Message From Congressman Sarbanes

I am proud to be leading the charge in Congress to limit the influence of Big Money on politics and government and amplify the voices of everyday Americans. Whether it’s the economy, energy and the environment, health care or any other critical issue, special interests and well-connected insiders are calling the shots in Washington. We need to return to a government of, by and for the people. That’s why I’ve introduced the Government By the People Act.

  • Women's Equality Day

    Today is the 96th anniversary of women winning the right to vote. While we are on the verge of electing our first female president we need to remember that we still have work to do when it comes to securing equal pay for equal work and electing more women into office!

  • Recalling Michael Phelps

    Back in the day, before Michael Phelps competed in his first Olympics, he and I used to share the pool at Meadowbrook in Mt. Washington.  At 23 years his senior, I used to pace myself by trying to swim one lap for his every two. I couldn't even do that. Anyway, we chose different paths from there. Michael decided to become the greatest Olympian of all time. I went into politics.  Sometimes I think about how different things would have been if I'd been a better swimmer. Oh well ....  Congratulations Michael on making your hometown of Baltimore and Towson High School (where all my kids graduated) so proud!!

    - Congressman John Sarbanes

  • National Night Out 2016

    This year I had the chance to go to the National Night Out events in Onley and Halethorpe. It's always a great night for members of the community to come out and meet our first responders and law enforcement personnel.
