Maryland Del. Don Dwyer's statement on the loss of his committee seat

January 09, 2014|By Tim Swift, The Baltimore Sun  

Del. Don Dwyer released this statement after Maryland Speaker Michael Busch stripped him of his committee seat.

"I recognize that as a result of my situation Speaker Busch finds himself in a very difficult position. I agree with the court that as an elected official I should be held to a higher standard of public conduct as a condition of my public office as should every elected official. I completely accept the Speaker’s disciplinary action to remove me from my standing committee. I look forward to continuing to serve as I have done in the past.”

I want to reassure my constituents that I will continue to review every piece of legislation and remain fully informed on all issues. As a result I will be fully prepared to vote for or against legislation that comes before me on the House Floor."
