Annapolis, Md. – Senate Minority Leader Bryan Simonaire is pleased to announce the appointment of Senator Mary Beth Carozza (Lower Shore) to the Governor’s Family Violence Council.
“It was my pleasure to recommend Senator Carozza for the Governor’s Family Violence Council.

I know she will be a valuable asset in advancing the work and mission of the Council.”
The Governor’s Family Violence Council is charged with providing the Governor with timely and accurate information on family violence with recommendations to reduce and eliminate abusive behaviors. It is comprised of a dedicated group of government officials, law enforcement professionals, legislators, community advocates, victims’ rights representatives, state and local government representatives and survivors.

By working with all the partners including family victim organizations, child advocacy groups, and law enforcement, we can advance policies and community initiatives that better protect more Marylanders from family violence," said Senator Mary Beth Carozza.
