John Sarbanes

Incumbent

A relentless advocate for Maryland families

Born and raised in Baltimore, Rep. John Sarbanes (MD-03) has represented this district since 2007. He has worked to protect the Chesapeake Bay, fight for affordable health care, and strengthen our education system. Sarbanes serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

A champion of reform and the lead author of the For the People Act

Sarbanes is the Chair of the Democracy Reform Task Force, and the House Democrats’ leading voice on good government and reform efforts. Rep. Sarbanes is the longest-running No PAC member of Congress, and has been a relentless voice to bring reform to the forefront of the Democratic agenda. Sarbanes was a constant presence on the campaign trail in 2018, appearing with ECU’s priority candidates across the country at town hall and press events to talk about money in politics and corruption. Sarbanes led efforts in the House to call for democracy reform as the top priority for the 116th Congress, and upon taking back the majority, led the Democratic legislative efforts on H.R. 1 as the bill’s lead author.
