Delaney Points to Business Background for Creating Jobs

January 7th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s newest congressman took office last week as lawmakers continue to grapple with tough choices about federal deficit reduction. The swearing-in Thursday of Democratic Representative John Delaney ends 20 years of Republican representation in the state’s 6th Congressional District. He defeated 10-term incumbent Roscoe Bartlett in November after Maryland’s ruling Democrats redrew the district’s boundaries. The redistricting added part of left-leaning Montgomery County to a district encompassing conservative western Maryland. Delaney campaigned as a moderate. He favors a combination of spending cuts and tax increases to reduce the deficit. He says that the unemployment numbers are bleak, however he believes his background in business and creating jobs will prove beneficial.
