During the Maryland General Assembly, the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) often calls upon its members to speak with a legislator regarding a particular bill. The Buddy System is MACo’s grassroots effort to match county elected officials with Maryland Senators and Delegates to increase communication about legislation impacting county government.
During Session, Buddy Alerts are sent via email when a vote on a specific bill is crucial. The alert will provide a brief overview of the legislation, MACo’s position, and a some quick talking points. MACo encourages elected officials to sign up to participate in this effort by selecting Delegate(s)/Senator(s) from the lists below. Prior to selecting your “buddies” take into consideration those with whom you have the best rapport and feel most comfortable conveying a position on a bill.
