ANNAPOLIS — A Prince George’s County delegate is resigning from the Maryland House of Delegates for personal reasons.

House Speaker Michael Busch’s office says State Delegate William Campos submitted his resignation Thursday. The resignation comes nine months after Campos was sworn in. It was first reported by The Washington Post.

The district in northwestern Prince George’s County, which is home to the county’s largest concentration of Hispanic immigrants, was drawn in 2012 to increase the chances of electing a lawmaker from the growing Latino community.

Forty-one-year-old Campos says he recently married and wants to start a family, but he lacks employment outside the State House. He says it’s “too many transitions” to manage while representing his district. Delegates are paid about $45,000 for what is considered part-time work.
