Maryland State Senator, Mary Beth Carozza, was working in the Pentagon on the day of the attacks.
"It was the worst of horrors," stated Senator Carozza. "The scale of destruction, the loss of life, but then you also saw the bravery, kindness, and unity, and so you knew in the end that good would overcome evil," continued Carozza.
Carozza Participates in First Apprenticeship 2030 Commission Meeting
Annapolis, Md – Senator Mary Beth Carozza (R-District 38) today said “we will be bold in creating new pathways for work and careers” after participating in the first meeting of the
Apprenticeship 2003 Commission on Tuesday. In July, Senator Carozza was appointed to by Senate President Bill Ferguson and fellow Eastern Shore Delegation member, Delegate Carl Anderton, was appointed by the House Speaker Adrienne Jones.
The purpose of the commission, established by passage of Senate Bill 104 in the 2023 Maryland General Assembly Session, is to examine and make recommendations to reduce skill shortages in high-demand occupations and provide affordable training for career pathways for young people.
“I constantly hear about the shortage of skilled and trained employees, and this appointment will allow me to continue to work with local industry, students and community leaders with an apprenticeship focus to meet the needs of the employers while keeping our young talent right here on the Shore,” said Carozza who has worked on this general priority with Shore employers, local technology high schools, Wor-Wic Community College, and the Tri-County Council since she was elected as a Delegate in 2014.
Carozza noted workforce shortages in all the major industries, and that the work on the Apprenticeship Commission will be focused on expanding registered apprenticeships to 60,000 by 2030 and reaching the goal for 45 percent of high school graduates to complete the high school level of a registered apprenticeship.
During the Commission’s virtual meeting, Senator Carozza questioned the Maryland Department of Education Senior Director of Career and College Pathways, “What has the interaction been with local employers to increase their interest to participate and increase the number of youth apprenticeships?” asked Carozza, who continues to advocate for more local flexibility for students and employers in building out apprenticeship programs across all industries. The Commission is due to report its findings and recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly by the end of this year.
SALISBURY, Md – Wicomico County State’s Attorney Jamie Dykes is working with Maryland State Senator Mary Beth Carozza to draft a bill that they say would lift restrictions on police looking to solve homicide investigations with juvenile victims and suspects....
Sen. Carozza tells 47ABC she got the chance to speak with Maryland Governor Wes Moore this week to help convince him to support what she says is a bi-partisan crime bill that would include an exception for juveniles accused of violent crimes from protections passed in previous years by the General Assembly.
“These are the type of changes, common sense changes that Governor Moore indicated he was open to, and indicates that he would work with us on bipartisan public safety legislation,” Senator Carozza said.
