Governor Larry Hogan (R) appointed former Delegate Charles Sydnor III (D) to the Maryland State Senate on December 30, 2019. Sydnor previously represented District 44B in the House and is now representing District 44 in the Senate.
The Senate seat was left vacant due to the resignation of Shirley Nathan-Pulliam (D), who resigned on December 1, 2019, due to health issues. Sydnor will finish Pulliam’s term, which ends in 2023.
Sydnor was first elected to the Maryland legislature in 2014 and assumed office in 2015. He is an attorney by profession.
The Baltimore County Democratic Central Committee for House District 44B will accept applications for Sydnor’s replacement and subsequently make a recommendation to Governor Hogan, who may either appoint or refuse the nominee.
