O’Malley Appoints Fraser-Hidalgo as District 15 Delegate
Governor Martin O’Malley has appointed David V. Fraser-Hidalgo as Delegate for Legislative District 15, representing Montgomery County.
“I am pleased to announce the appointment of the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee’s candidate to the District 15 delegate seat,” said Governor O’Malley on Oct. 16. “We are confident that Mr. Fraser-Hidalgo will serve the people of our State well in his new role.”
Fraser-Hidalgo will fill the vacancy left by now Maryland Senator Brian Feldman of Potomac, who Governor O’Malley appointed to replace former Sen. Robert Garagiola in September. Mr. Fraser-Hidalgo’s term will begin effective immediately.
As stated in the Maryland Constitution Article III, Sec. 13, Governor O’Malley is required to make an appointment to fill a Delegate vacancy from a written submission by the Central Committee of the political party affiliated with the vacating Delegate.
Per Constitutional requirements, the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee voted and submitted Fraser-Hidalgo’s name for appointment.
