Delegate Will Campos, representing Prince George’s County, resigned for personal reasons on September 10, 2015, just nine months after he was sworn in to the Maryland House of Delegates. Prior to serving as a state delegate, Campos served on the Prince George’s County Council for 10 years.

According to The Washington Post article,

Campos, 41, said in an interview that his recent marriage, desire to start a family and lack of employment outside the State House amounted to “too many transitions” to manage while representing the northwestern corner of Prince George’s County, home to the county’s highest concentration of Hispanic immigrants.

Delegates are paid $45,207 for what is considered part-time work.

Campos submitted his resignation to House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel) on Thursday, according to a statement issued by Busch’s office.

“In his brief tenure . . . he was a great advocate for Prince George’s County and for criminal justice reform,” Busch said. “I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
