Hi, I’m Sarahia Benn (pronounced Sa-ree-ah), also known as S. Benn. I’m affectionately know as “B or Ms. B”. Professional musician/producer, educator, and community activist to take on the Establishment and bring positive change to State House. I’m the product of a strong, hardworking, and locally-known family in District 34A called the Bishop-Bond. 

Simply put my legislative priority is: YOU, The People.


Below are some of my positions on issues that the People have notified me of. 

I, S. Benn, believe we should not have working poor people so the way to economic empowerment must include addressing wage issues in a positive manner and, for those who want to grow their business or start a small business, having access to more varied lending sources can transform not only the lives of those who own it but the community too.

I believe that in the richest nation, solving the issue of healthcare is a matter of viewing how it is interconnected to the quality of life and productivity of the community – not through the lens of divisive and vitriolic political rhetoric. My parents fell ill and without affordable healthcare, I had to become the predominant caregiver and breadwinner for my sickly parents. Add that District 34A has been ranked as one of the many areas in America that are struggling with opioid and other drug addictions, yet quality and affordable healthcare still remain elusive for far too many. I have a plan to help caregivers and Marylanders that find themselves in the gray areas of the law to gain better and consistent healthcare. 

I, S. Benn, believe that having better & more accessible transportation in District 34A (& the State), which is one of the most populous areas in Harford County, will improve the quality of life for the majority and address environmental issues that current transportation options contribute negatively too. 

I believe that the current infrastructure needs a massive upgrade that would not only bring more business and job opportunities to the area but increase tourism in an area that is rich with history and access to the Susquehanna River and the head of the Chesapeake Bay.

I, S. Benn, believe we must build additional vo-techs, ITT, and/or trade schools in Harford County District 34A, so our children and/or young adults have access to alternative opportunities and our aging trade workforce that’s between 58-62 can be replaced with local talent.  No other candidate has even considered this until I've presented this. 

“I was born with advocacy in my veins and fire in my soul.” I believe that now more than ever, District 34A needs new leadership that stands with the people and for something. My long history of leadership as a music minister, musical director/producer, consultant, educator, entrepreneur, lifelong advocate, PTA VP, and mentor has more than prepared me to be the type of leader District 34A needs in the State House.

I  am the People's Champ. 

I can not be bought or sold. 

But.....

I need your help.

I need your support. 

I need you to vote on November 6, 2018

I plan to serve the people unlike my opponents who only serve themselves.  


Sincerely,

Sarahia Benn
