MEET JOHN

A lifelong educator, John B. King Jr. knows firsthand the power of public education and the important role educators play in creating a more just and prosperous future. John’s own life was saved by public school educators after both of his parents passed away by the time he was twelve. Like many kids who suffer trauma, John struggled as a teenager and got into so much trouble that he was actually kicked out of high school. It was public school educators that saved his life, gave him a second chance, and inspired him to become an educator himself. John has spent his entire career fighting for a more just and equitable future, from working as an educator himself to serving as the first Afro-Latino Secretary of Education under President Obama.

We would not have made it through the worst of the pandemic without the tireless efforts of frontline workers. There's a reason we call them heroes. It's time to put our money where our mouth is. #fundthefrontlines https://t.co/Ne0VLpCgJi

Thankful for the opportunity to share my vision for Maryland's future with the @LUMdemocrats and the @jhudems! It's always fun to be in the classroom. https://t.co/duOUSCXrPd

Huge night for @MorganStateU and its alumni on the #BidenTownHall! My grandmother was one of the first Black women to graduate from @UMESNews and I couldn't be happier to see Maryland's HBCUs shine.

As governor, I’ll put Maryland on the path to become one of the first states to achieve net-zero emissions. President Biden’s #BuildBackBetter agenda will help us get there with more than $60 million to support the expansion of a statewide electric vehicle charging network.
