Had enough of career politicians? Had enough political gamesmanship on Capitol Hill? Had enough of government over spending? Had enough of this recession?

I have!

That’s why I am running for the United States Senate. It is time to put our country back on the right track. It is time for change that won’t bankrupt our nation, socialize medicine or weaken our national security. And it is time we had a Senator who is focused on our priorities.

My goal as your next United States Senator is to put the people of Maryland first.

About Carmen:

Carmen Amedori is a lifelong resident of Maryland who has had both a distinguished career in the private and public sector making the ideal person to represent us in the United States Senate.

Carmen had the honor of being elected twice to represent the people of Carroll County in the Maryland House of Delegates. She served from 1999 until 2004 on the Judiciary Committee. Carmen was quickly recognized for leadership skills and was elected Deputy Minority Whip in 2002 and the following year she was chosen Assistant Minority Leader. During her tenure in the House, Carmen consistently voted in favor of tougher crime measures, rights for individuals to defend and protect property, tort reform, Second Amendment rights, school choice initiatives and pro-life legislation. She earned a reputation of being a fiscal watchdog and a strong advocate for the taxpayer.

In 2004, Carmen was appointed to the Maryland Parole Commission by Governor Robert L.Ehrlich, Jr. where she served until December 2009.

Carmen’s other public sector success includes leading the 1998 special election fight in Carroll County to defeat a Charter government referendum.

Before being elected to office, Carmen worked as a paralegal in several Baltimore area law offices. Combining her legal knowledge and her talent for writing, she became a journalist working for The Baltimore Sun and the Carroll County Times. During her tenure at the newspapers, Carmen was the recipient of several writing awards.

On the personal side Carmen Amedori was born in Baltimore City and was raised in Govans until her family moved to Reisterstown when she was 15. Over the past 30 years she has called Carroll County her home. Carmen has many stories to tell of her youth growing up in the city during the Civil Right’s movement of the 60’s where she was an activist, even then. Carmen earned her degree from Stevenson University (Villa Julie College).

Most importantly, Carmen is the proud mother of two adult daughters, Nicole, 30 and Kara, 27. She is a parishioner of St. John’s Catholic Church in Westminster. When she is not “righting wrongs” she has a passion for photography, swimming and hiking.

    Keep your eye on Carmen Amedori! While her past experience and beliefs speak for themselves, her commitment to standing up for and empowering Marylanders will become more evident as this race progresses. She is an very strong candidate who puts the people first and does not back down when it comes to what she stands for.

    I have known Amedori for many years; she is a very strong and driven woman who knows what the people want. She is the change Maryland needs and I have no doubt that she will be victorious against Mikulski in November.
