Supporting the Work of Veronica Turner
Maryland State Senator
Senator Joanne C. Benson has a proven record of getting the job done for us. A graduate of Bowie State, her deep roots in the area and her years spent as an educator and community leader give her the experience she needs to be the independent voice we can count on. She understands the challenges that our families, seniors and business leaders are facing and she is fighting for us.
