Leon F. Pinkett 111 January Newsletter
Thank you for subscribing to the newsletter for District 7 which will highlight news about changes and updates for the community.
In December I was able to make a difference in District 7 through work on legislation to improve our communities.
I worked on a bill aimed towards regulating Electronic Smoking Devices by broadening the definition of smoking devices to encompass all electronic smoking devices. The bill will also regulate flavored e-liquids and create specific sanitation standards for the creation and sale of e-liquids. This bill aims to protect the youth of our city from targeted e-cigarette advertisements, and decrease the rates of smoking e-cigarettes in our communities. You can read more about this bill here.
This month I also began the Blessings in Giving (B.I.G.) 7th District Annual Christmas Bus Trip, in which I gifted 40 children from the Baltimore City Health Department’s Early Head Start program and Druid Heights Community Development Corporation with gifts from Walmart and dinner from Chick-Fil-A. This will continue as an annual event in which I give back to children and families for the holiday season.
I look forward to continuing this work in 2019 and would like to wish all of District 7 a Happy New Year.
