Elected in 2018 to represent Annapolis and southern Anne Arundel County, Senator Sarah Elfreth is the youngest woman ever elected to the Maryland Senate. She is passionately committed to serving her constituents both in the State House and in the community. Sarah worked with colleagues across the aisle and around the State to pass 39 bills she sponsored in her first three legislative sessions. These new laws range from creating Maryland’s first Office of Statewide Broadband, investing in libraries, small businesses, and critical prenatal care for healthy Maryland mothers, and protecting oysters and clean water.
Sarah serves on the Budget & Taxation Committee, Chair of the Anne Arundel County Senate Delegation, and as one of two senators representing Maryland on the multi-state Chesapeake Bay Commission. Despite serving in her first term, the Senate President has also given Sarah the leadership roles of Chair of the Pensions Subcommittee, Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Administrative, and Legislative Review, as a member of the Senate President’s Workgroup on Equity & Inclusion, and as the Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on the Chesapeake & Atlantic Coastal Bays Critical Area.
