As of Friday, February 20, 2015, there is a delegate vacancy in District 33. After just five weeks into the four year term, Delegate Cathy Vitale is resigning to accept a Governor O’Malley appointment to the Circuit Court. So the process begins to find a worthy replacement.
“Congratulations To Our New Delegate Mike Malone!”

In addition, I am hosting a meeting Tuesday, February 24th, at 5:30 PM (Click here to listen to the AUDIO of the event starting at minute 5:30) in the Anne Arundel Delegation Room, Room 142, in the Lowe’s House Office building. The purpose of the meeting is to give interested candidates a chance to introduce themselves to members of the delegation and to residents of District 33 who are encouraged to attend.
District 33 is represented in the Maryland House of Delegates by three delegates. I, Tony McConkey, was first elected in 2002 and am now beginning my fourth term. I serve on the House Appropriations Committee. Cathy has served since 2011 and has been a member of what is now the Environment and Transportation Committee. Our third representative is Sid Saab who just started his first term and is a member of Health and Government Operations.
