The Democratic Primary Election is June 26, 2018. This is the election that will effectively determine who will be your elected officials representing District 16.
Why Should I Vote for Jordan P. Cooper?
Jordan P. Cooper has extensive on-the-ground legislative experience
in Annapolis. Jordan first worked in the Maryland General Assembly 10
years ago in 2003 as a Student Page. More recently, he worked for two
years as a Legislative Aide for Delegate Keith E. Haynes
in the House of Delegates. During this time, Jordan gained professional
experience solving problems and providing answers to constituents in
need of assistance. Jordan learned how to negotiate the bill-to-law
process by helping usher bills through the House of Delegates. During
the time he served in Annapolis, from 2008-2010, he worked across the
hall from Delegate Susan Lee who currently represents District 16 and across the street from Senator Brian Frosh of District 16. Jordan knows HOW Annapolis works, knows WHO works in Annapolis, and Jordan knows, more than any other challenger candidate, WHAT
works in Annapolis. He will use this knowledge to the advantage of the
constituents of District 16 and ensure that no time is wasted bringing a
freshman Delegate up to speed; Jordan is ready to Hit the Ground Running from Day 1.
Jordan has a wide array of experience in healthcare that is unmatched
by any other challenger candidate. Jordan has worked on health policy
issues in the Maryland General Assembly while working for the Vice-Chair
of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Resources.
Jordan has written language that has since been incorporated into final
federal regulations pertaining to Medicare and Health Care Reform.
Jordan has a Master's degree in Health Policy from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Moreover, he has experience working in a variety of settings with a
variety of stakeholders in such a way that he is able to appreciate the
many perspectives that will be brought to the table during discussions
about how Marylanders can get better value from their healthcare,
control costs, improve quality, and finally have security with their
healthcare. Unlike any other candidate for Delegate in District 16,
Jordan has worked in both inpatient and outpatient clinical
environments, in Maryland and Federal legislative bodies (Jordan has
experience working for the U.S. Congress), in the non-profit advocacy
setting, in the private sector consulting business, and has formal
academic training on the very issues that he wishes to work on as YOUR Delegate.
A Lifetime of Community Service
Jordan has invested over half of his life thus far in public service
through volunteerism; few if any of the other challengers can make such a
claim of consistent dedication to the improvement of the community.
Educated and Raised in District 16
Jordan attended Kindergarten through 12th grade in Montgomery County
Public Schools here in the 16th District. Jordan has volunteered, worked
at, and studied in many major institutions throughout District 16. He
knows our District, its schools, our Legislature, who we are, and how to
put the community first.
