Dear Colleagues and Friends:

I would like to welcome you to the installation ceremony for the 2008-2010 Officers of the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland, Inc. I am truly humbled to work for this prestigious organization and with my esteemed colleagues as we work together to strengthen our community.

The Caucus must strategically position ourselves to address the growing needs and challenges that face the African American Community today. We must unite with our fellow legislators to pass legislation and policy that would enhance the quality of life for every citizen of Maryland.

We must also work with the Maryland Black Caucus Foundation and other organizations to advocate, develop and implement programs that will serve the best interest of the African American Community.

As Chair, I am fully committed to strengthen our relationship with our existing supporters and look forward to developing new relationships as we move to “Strengthen and Unify” the African American Community.

Thank you for being with us this evening and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Yours in Solidarity,
Delegate Veronica L. Turner
