Senator Jill P.

As a state Delegate, she led the legislative efforts for police reform.

Carter, Jill has served as the Director of Civil Rights and Wage Enforcement for the City of Baltimore fighting for the rights of the citizens.  Senator Carter’s quest to ensure that transparency and inclusion lead to her sponsoring senate bill 619 which called for the creation of a new board for the state of Maryland’s largest hospital system, requires competitive bidding for the procurement of goods and services, and demands greater transparency and oversight of board members.  Her leadership garnered her the distinction of being named the “… lawmaker with the biggest impact in 2019…” by the Baltimore Sun’s Editorial Board.
Senator Carter is dedicated to ensuring parity and justice for her constituency and for all.
