POLITICS18: Barnett Files for House of Delegates, 44-B

(WOODLAWN – September 25, 2017) – Aaron Barnett has decided to throw his hat in the ring for House of Delegates in the Maryland State Legislative District 44-B. His passion includes early child care education and development. If readers recall, Barnett ran for the House in 2014. His official announcement is Monday, October 2, 2017 at 7 pm at the Woodlawn Community Center, 2120 Gwynn Oak Avenue.

The last time around, Barnett missed by 34 votes. This time, chances are he could win it.

“I am running to represent the Woodlawn/Catonsville corridor in Annapolis because I believe that I am the man for the job,” said Barnett.

People familiar with his personal story know that while Barnett made some mistakes in his earlier years, he has transformed himself into a beacon of hope. For years now, Barnett has been working with youth and trying to help save them from prison and the streets. His mentoring program, R.B.L.O.C.K., Inc., is known of far and wide. R.B.L.O.C.K. stands for Removing Barriers Limiting Our Community Kids. It is now in its ninth year of operation and is located in Wooldawn.

District 44-B is two-thirds of the broader 44th district, where District 44-A is located inside Baltimore City. This weirdly carved district which includes Baltimore County and Baltimore City was authored under the O’Malley administration after the last US Census took place. The current State Senator for the 44th is Sen. Shirley Nathan-Pulliam.
