Maryland State Senate

After the 2016 presidential elections, Sen. Cheryl C. Kagan sprang into action to organize a sell-out concert at a 500-seat venue that benefited five progressive organizations, including Planned Parenthood of Maryland and the League of Conservation Voters.

Kagan is a board member of the American Jewish Committee and Americans for Democratic Action. She is a founder of Folk’N Great Music. In 2015 and 2016, the Maryland Municipal League named her a superstar for her service to her constituency.

How have you made Maryland a better place?

In the Maryland State Senate, I was elected to represent the residents of District 17, Gaithersburg and Rockville.  In addition, I proudly speak out for the nonprofit sector, which represents 10% of our economy and our workforce; the needs of our state’s 157 cities and towns; and of consumers, whose voices are too infrequently heard.  I believe it’s also the responsibility of every woman in elective office to mentor and encourage talented women to run so we can continue to enlarge our numbers and our influence.
