MDHBC Speakers US Senator Ben Cardin Ben Cardin has been a national leader on health care, retirement security, the environment and fiscal issues as a member of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Senator Cardin was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 and he was re-elected in 2012. He currently serves on the Environment and Public Works (EPW), Finance, Foreign Relations, and Small Business & Entrepreneurship committees. In the 113th Congress, he chairs the Water and Wildlife Subcommittee of EPW and he chairs the East

Asian and Pacific Affairs Subcommittee of the Foreign Relations Committee. The Washington Post has said Ben Cardin has a “command of issues, proven integrity, formidable intellect and an unstinting work ethic,” and that he “is sensible, toughminded and independent.” The Baltimore Sun has said, “He has been able to work both sides of the aisle” to help workers save for retirement and to champion the expansion of Medicare benefits. In 2001, he was named by Worth Magazine as among the top “100 people who have influenced the way Americans think about money.”

Congressman Chris Van Hollen Congressman Chris Van Hollen was elected to Congress in 2002 in a high-profile election that received national attention. He quickly earned a reputation as an active, engaged, and effective member of Congress, rising to become one of the youngest members of the Democratic leadership in 2008. In addition to representing the Eighth District of

Maryland and serving in House leadership, Congressman Van Hollen was re-elected by his colleagues in 2012 to serve a second term as the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee. In this position, he serves as a key point person on budget and economic legislation in the House and is working to advance policies that support job creation and economic growth, reduce the deficit, and put America on a path to fiscal sustainability and broadlyshared prosperity.

Montgomery County Executive Isiah (Ike) Leggett From his roots in the hardscrabble poverty of then-segregated Louisiana, Ike Leggett has built a record of public service marked by conviction to principle, leadership, and a willingness to take on tough fights and make hard choices.

In 2006, Leggett won the Democratic Party primary for County Executive by 61 percent of the vote. Then, in November of that same year, he was elected the First African American County Executive, winning more than 67 percent of the ballots cast in a three-way race. In 2010, Leggett was unopposed for the Democratic Party nomination and was reelected County Executive with over 65 percent of the vote.

Ken Ulman From the first day of his administration, County Executive Ulman made a commitment to the citizens of Howard County: make good government even better. At the time, Ulman was 32 – the youngest County Executive ever elected in Maryland. Residents responded to his energy and ideas, and on Dec. 6, 2010, Ulman was sworn in for

a second term. Ulman and his administration continue to follow through on that promise by strengthening core priorities such as public safety and education, finding efficiencies within government, exercising sound fiscal management, protecting our environment, and creating a healthier and more vibrant community. Ulman’s leadership and the efforts of his administration have earned Howard County national accolades over the years.

Nancy Navarro President, Montgomery County Council Nancy Navarro, currently serves as President of the Montgomery County Council. She was elected to represent District 4 on the Council in a special election on May 19, 2009 and reelected in the general election on November 4, 2010. Since December 2010, she has chaired the Government Operations and

8

Fiscal Policy (GO) Committee and serves on the Health and Human Services Committee. She served as Council Vice President for the 2011-2012 session, and has been elected Council President for the 2012-2013 session of the Council. In October 2011, President Barack Obama appointed Nancy as a member of the President’s Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, where she serves on the Early Childhood Education Committee.
