A letter from the candidate:
My name is Becca Niburg and I am running to be your next State Delegate for District 13. My family and I settled into the Emerson neighborhood in Laurel in 2015, getting involved in the Howard County Public Schools, our neighborhood, and the County and State community as a whole soon thereafter. Through that involvement, I saw grave inequities in the way certain people were treated and a general omission of how trauma affects people in all aspects of life.
I have spent my entire adult life serving and helping others. After a decade of service in the federal government, upholding our nation's laws and values, I saw the looming threat from the election results of 2016. In the last administration, I fought from the private sector on behalf of children, survivors of interfamily violence and human trafficking, and immigrants. No matter what other position I am in, I will continue to advocate for people who do not have a voice of their own. Many issues are not adequately considered in our current systems and the best way to change that is to be at the table where those decisions are made. I am running for Delegate to bring the experiences of working directly with survivors of trauma, those who have suffered from mental health crises, and those outside the circles of power to Annapolis. I have listened over the years to hear stories and be able to help individuals as they navigate their own journeys, but real change happens when that knowledge arrives in the law making process to benefit all. I am ready to bring all of our voices to Annapolis.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website to learn a little more about me and learn why I am running for the Maryland House of Delegates in District 13 and how that will allow me the opportunity to continue serving our community.
