Norm's Plan for the Eastern Shore

Funding Education

Norm believes future economic success lies in an excellent education system. That’s why he’s proud of programs such as the Thornton formula that represent the equity and adequacy in funding school systems that have made Maryland schools #1 for the past five years. Because of Norm’s dedication to education, K-12 classes have not had reductions in funding, despite the economic downturn of recent years. Maryland’s Community Colleges and four-year institutions can also continue to be the foundation of creating jobs and boosting the economy while maintaining tuition that students can afford.

Defender of Agriculture

Norm recognizes that agriculture is the #1 industry on the Eastern Shore. That’s why he worked hard to protect farming by recognizing its economic impact and support the Maryland Agricultural Certainty Program. This program is offered to farmers who voluntarily meet the 2025 water goals. The program reduces pollution from farms, supports local watersheds and gives public access to more data regarding farming practices at the watershed level.

Economic Development and Jobs

Understanding the hardships of this economic downturn, Norm Conway helped Maryland create 40,000 new jobs since January 2010 and advocated the new Job Creation Tax Credit, an emergency bill passed this session that provides a $5,000 tax credit to any business that hires an unemployed Marylander. He also worked with state officials to securing funding to continue Ocean City beach replenishment and support of the Ocean City Convention Center. Additionally, he worked for funding to continue the Route 113 dualization project and the Perdue Business School at Salisbury University.
