ABOUT ERIC

Eric Bromwell was born in Perry Hall in 1976 and is a lifelong resident of the 8th Legislative District. Eric attended Perry Hall Elementary and Middle Schools before graduating from Calvert Hall College High School in 1994.

At home, Eric was raised and immersed in the political arena by his father, Thomas L. Bromwell Sr., who was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates in 1978 and to the Maryland Senate in 1982. Senator Bromwell served until his voluntary retirement from elected service in 2002. Like his father, Eric’s strong desire to help people in his community was the reason he ran for office and still takes tremendous pride in his job today.

In 1998, Eric received his Bachelor’s of Arts in English from Salisbury University. He then furthered his education in graduate studies at the University of Baltimore in 2000. On January 8, 2003, Eric was honored to become one of the youngest Delegates ever elected at the age of twenty-four. Thanks to the voters of the 8th District, Eric has represented Baltimore County for 12 legislative sessions.

From 2007-2010, Eric was elected unanimously to serve as Chairman of the Baltimore County Delegation to the Maryland House of Delegates. Through his reputation of bipartisanship and coalition building, Eric led the Delegation which secured four straight record-setting years of school construction and renovation funding for Baltimore County. This is particularly important because Baltimore County has the second oldest schools in Maryland.

Eric currently serves as the Vice Chair of Health and Government Operations Committee and has served as Chairman of the Health Facilities and Occupations Subcommittee since 2011.

ISSUES

Improving our Schools

A product of our public-school system, Eric knows the importance of having great schools in our community. As Chairman of the Baltimore County Delegation, he fought to bring record funding for public school construction and renovation funding for air-conditioning and larger auditoriums.

Promoting Fiscal Responsibility

We need leadership in Annapolis that stands against unnecessary spending and works to reduce taxes while making government more accountable. Eric fought against the alcohol tax, gas tax and rain tax because he believes they are unnecessary burdens on small businesses and taxpayers.

Standing up for Seniors

All great communities take care of their seniors. Eric has sponsored and helped pass legislation that lowers the costs of prescription drugs and provides them with greater access to medical care. He has also worked across the aisle to protect seniors from people who commit fraud and exploit them financially.

Supporting our Local Economy

Eric will continue to stand up for middle-class families and work to create new jobs and strengthen our economy. He will continue to help local businesses get the resources they to need to be successful by making government work better.

Rebuilding our infrastructure

Eric believes infrastructure improvements are essential to help reduce gridlock and increase economic productivity. He knows we can make these improvements if we stop raiding transportation funding in Annapolis.

Addressing the Opioid Epidemic

As the House Chair of the State work group tasked with addressing the opioid epidemic, Eric has worked to increase funding for treatment and passed legislation to expand instruction to high schoolers about heroin and opioid addiction and prevention.
