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.

  • Thank You

    Thank you for powering me to re-election and for giving the gavel back to Democrats in the House of Representatives. With your vote and all the other ways you helped--putting up yard signs, chipping in a few dollars, or knocking on doors--you made the difference and I am deeply humbled by your support.    

    For the last two years, our country--our democracy--has been sliding on loose gravel. On Tuesday, we found our footing. Now we go to work restoring checks and balances in Washington. The President's latest move dismissing the Attorney General shows why oversight is so important. You were the ones that restored that oversight and it is our responsibility to carry it out. 

  • Election Day!

    Happy Election Day! I stopped at polling locations across the Third District today to thank voters for exercising their civic duty.

  • Sarbanes Statement on Shooting at Pittsburgh Synagogue

    “The anti-Semitic attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh was heartbreaking. I extend my deepest condolences to everyone who has been touched by this senseless act of violence. We must join together to resist the hate and bigotry that has become so painfully common in our country.”

     

  • Sarbanes Statement on Yom Kippur

    “As the Jewish community gathered to begin a period of determined introspection and solemn atonement, we can all take this opportunity to reflect on the last year and find ways – large and small – to come together and repair our world. I wish the Jewish community in Maryland, across America, and around the world a meaningful fast. From my family to yours, g'mar chatimah tova.”
