"I want to make sure that we keep it going. So that we can get people employed and so many people in my district don't have jobs," Cummings said. "So I'm hoping that we'll be able to do some things in regards to the Jobs Act the president has proposed and get that off the table and get it going."

Another 10 years likely of a politician from the city who does not give a good C**P about Catonsville. Thanks to MOM's gerrymandered election districts he is insured long tenure.
