Jim Rosapepe is an environmentalist, education champion, and workforce advocate.
In the Maryland House of Delegates, he fought to protect open space, improve the public schools, boost the University of Maryland, hold down taxes on middle class working and retired families, and protect our neighborhoods from drugs and crime.
In 1997, President Bill Clinton asked him to join his administration as U.S. Ambassador to Romania, where he worked to win friends for America and make the world a safer place.
Returning in 2001, Governor Glendening appointed Jim to a five year term on the Board of Regents of the University System of Maryland, which governs the university. He continued to champion the College Park campus — and he led the fight against state budget cuts to the university and against double digit tuition hikes.
In the Senate, Jim is Vice Chair of the Budget and Tax Committee as well as a member of the COVID-19 workgroup and the Democratic leadership.
