Delaney Congratulates David Trone on Winning Maryland’s Sixth District, Thanks Constituents for Opportunity to Represent Them

 

WASHINGTON – Tonight, David Trone was elected to represent Maryland’s Sixth District. Congressman John K. Delaney is the district’s current representative, first being elected in 2012. Congressman Delaney campaigned with Trone on Election Day.

Delaney announced last year that he would not seek reelection and would instead run for president.

Congressman Delaney releases the following statement:

“I want to congratulate my friend David Trone on his victory tonight. He has run a strong campaign to win Maryland’s most competitive congressional district. It’s a tough district to win, it’s a big district, it’s a diverse district – and I hope David and his team celebrate tonight, they’ve earned it. Throughout the campaign David had a laser-like focus on the issues that voters really care about: creating good jobs, protecting people’s health care, ending the opioid crisis and supporting veterans. David is a doer, he’s an accomplished businessman who has inclusive values, he wants more people to experience the kind of success he has had. David is going to be a great congressman and I am excited to see what he gets done in the House of Representatives.

“Reflecting on this Election Day, I cannot help but think back to the three times that the voters of the Sixth District put their faith in me and selected me as their representative. Representing the Sixth District has been one of the great honors of my life.

“Frankly, we need more elected officials and national leaders who have experience representing districts like this one. This is not a one-party district – you have to listen to everyone, you have to drill down into local issues and you have to be accessible and accountable. For the last six years, that’s what we’ve tried to do, holding town halls, office hours and constituent services workshops across the district. Our legislative portfolio has been focused on infrastructure – from highways like I-270 to fixing Metro, supporting veterans and making sure the next generation has opportunities. I am really proud of the work we have done to stand up for the people of the Sixth District, from Garrett County to Gaithersburg.”
