Next generation enters political fray
By GUY FLETCHER
ANNAPOLIS - Joseph R. Bartlett, the son of U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett, has announced he is running for the Maryland House of Delegates in District 3, which includes parts of Frederick and Washington counties.
Bartlett said his own political aspirations, not his father's urging, prompted him to run for the state legislative seat.
"Frederick County and Maryland are very important to me and I just wanted to get involved," said Bartlett, 28, who lives near Middletown, Md.
Bartlett said he has the experience to run a campaign; he managed his father's last re-election bid in 1996 and volunteered during the 1994 race.
