Gov. Larry Hogan announced Thursday that he's appointed Del. Paul Corderman to the Senate seat left vacant earlier this summer after Sen. Andrew Serafini resigned.
“I am confident that Delegate Corderman will continue to be a strong advocate for constituents in Washington County in his new role as state senator,” Hogan said in a prepared statement. “I offer him my sincere congratulations, and will continue to work with him to change Maryland for the better.”
"I'm very appreciative of Gov. Hogan confirming the nomination," said Corderman, adding that he's looking forward to representing the county in the Maryland Senate.
Corderman, R-Washington, said a date for his swearing-in hadn't been set yet. He will have to resign his seat as a state delegate before being sworn in.
The Senate seat for District 2 includes eastern and southern Washington County.
