Weeks before the Maryland legislature reconvenes, a local soon-to-be state senator is asking constituents for their opinions. Sen.-elect Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, has posted a survey of key issues and how people feel about them. Shank said he has done a few mail surveys as a delegate, when he represented a smaller area. This is his first Internet survey. Shank, a three-term delegate in Subdistrict 2B, defeated five-term incumbent Donald F. Munson this year to win Munson’s Senate seat.
