Rey appointed Deputy Minority Whip on the House Judiciary Committee

Annapolis – House Minority Leader Nic Kipke and Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga today announced the appointment of Delegate Deb Rey (District 29B – St. Mary’s) to the position of Deputy
Minority Whip on the House Judiciary Committee.

“Both on the floor and in Committee, Delegate Rey is a force to reckoned with,” said House Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga. “She has an innate passion for justice. She is an Air Force Veteran
with a strong sense of duty and honor that make her an invaluable part of our team. All of these characteristics make her an excellent choice for this position and we are fortunate to have her on
our team.”

“This appointment is very humbling,” said Delegate Rey. “Too often it seem as though the General Assembly is looking for ways to make life easier for criminals. Governor Hogan has introduced a
package of bills that address the needs of victims; including legislation to that will classify felony human trafficking as a violent crime. I look forward to working with the members of the Judiciary
Committee to move this meaningful legislation through and make Maryland a safer place for women.”

Delegate Rey is the newest addition to the six-member deputy whip structure that also includes Delegates Wendell Beitzel, Charles Otto, Sid Saab, Steve Arentz, and Teresa Reilly.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
