Delegate Justin D. Ross (D, D-22) announced that he will resign from the Maryland House of Delegates effective November 9. The Baltimore Sun reports that Ross will be focusing on his commercial real estate business and spending more time with his family. Ross has represented Prince George’s County for ten years.
House Speaker Michael E. Busch said in a statement that Ross has played a “critical” role in “the passage of every piece of important legislation” in recent years.
Senate President Thomas V. “Mike” Miller called Ross “one of the brightest stars in Annapolis” and said he is “truly saddened” by his planned departure.
