She is the first woman and African American to be elected to the position.
She was the Democrats’ choice to be the next speaker of the House of Delegates, after Del. Maggie McIntosh fell short of getting enough votes.
Delegate (D-Baltimore County) Adrienne Jones will assume the official position as speaker of the House of Delegates following the unexpected death of late House Speaker Michael Busch, who served as speaker since 2003 until his passing in April 2019.
