Paul Corderman on Tuesday was sworn in to succeed former state Sen. Andrew Serafini.
Senate President Bill Ferguson administered the oath to Corderman, R-Washington, during a ceremony in the State House. Also in the photograph is Corderman's wife, Kerri, and their daughter, Sammi.
Serafini resigned from his seat earlier in the summer. Corderman previously represented Washington County in the House of Delegates in the District 2B and applied for Serafini's seat. The Washington County Republican Central Committee nominated Corderman to the position and Gov. Larry Hogan appointed Corderman to Serafini's seat. Tuesday was also Corderman's 43rd birthday.
The Washington County Republican Central Committee on Tuesday said the deadline for people wishing to apply for the District 2B house seat is Sept. 10. All applications must be received electronically through email at firstname.lastname@example.org, according to a news release from the committee.
