Prayers for Parkland, Florida

flaghalfstaffFirst and foremost, my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, the families, and all of those impacted by the recent tragic event in Parkland, Florida. As a father of four children, there is nothing more important to me then the safety of our children. Children should never have to be in fear from such senseless violence. It is the concern for our children, and protecting our community that has inspired me to spend my entire professional career in public service; first as a marine, and then a Harford County Sherriff Deputy for nearly 23 years.

While the tragic events that occurred in Florida require debate, these problems are complex and dynamic and need mature and thoughtful solutions that address all parts of the issue. We can not blame our constitutional second amendment for the actions of people.

We need to address mental health issues head-on and have difficult, but meaningful conversations about how we can identify people with a propensity for violence, while conducting thorough evaluations and threat assessments and have a tracking system in place. Furthermore, we need to have a long discussion about how we can better protect the most important aspect of society, our children and schools.

We also need to look at where there were break-downs in the system that might have been able to prevent this tragedy. Can we develop a better process for connecting the information by leveraging technology and software to help identify potential offenders proactively-- before tragedy occurs.

In this process, we all need to come together and figure out a meaningful solution. It's about building a better and stronger nation and we are best when we work together and listen to everybody's ideas.

It is my sincere hope that we can put an end to these type tragedies so no other family will ever have to endure the pain being suffered in Florida.

Penman Kicks Off Campaign for House of Delegates

Aaron Penman announces he his a candidate for Delegate for Maryland's 7th District and an opening fund raiser.April 26 2017, Forest Hill MD: Harford County Deputy Sheriff Sergeant Aaron Penman officially announces his campaign for the House of Delegates in Legislative District 7. Penman will officially kick-off his campaign on June 10th with an evening fundraiser and rally at the Fallston Fire hall. District 7 is currently represented by Delegate Rick impallaria, Delegate Kathy Szeliga and Delegate Pat McDonough; Delegate McDonough has announced publicly that he will not seek re-election to his Delegate seat and will run for the open Baltimore County Executive Seat in 2018.

"As Vice President of the Harford County Deputy Sheriff's Union, I spent a lot of time in Annapolis last session where I have witnessed first hand the attacks liberal legislators and interest groups are waging on Law Enforcement officers and hard working Maryland citizens. It is disheartening to watch Annapolis Politicians support rights for illegal immigrants over hard working Maryland Tax Payers." said Penman

"If elected to serve, I will work hard to serve the citizens of District 7, partnering with my Conservative colleagues to support Maryland taxpayers and law-abiding citizens."
