Former two-term Delegate, Richard Sossi, announced that he has submitted his resignation to Congressman Andy Harris, M.D., effective December 31, 2013. Sossi has been serving as the congressional liaison, covering Cecil, Caroline, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties, for the congressman since January of 2011.
“I thanked Congressman Harris for entrusting me with this post and with the opportunity it provided me in continuing to serve the citizens of the mid and upper shore on his behalf” Sossi said. Sossi continued, “It is not without some sadness that I am stepping down, but with the 2014 elections coming up, I recognized that a decision had to be made if I were to seek the opportunity of continued public service in the legislative arena.”
Congressman Andy Harris commented, “Dick Sossi has been a real asset to our team. With his knowledge of the district and the high regard he is held by our constituents on the upper shore, he will be sorely missed. I look forward to working with Dick in the future for the betterment of the district”.
Sossi expressed his gratitude to Congressman Harris and indicated that any public announcements concerning his political plans will not be made until after the first of the year. The deadline to file for political office is the 25th of February, 2014.
