SMACNA’s Mid-Atlantic Chapter and SMACNA National Capitol Hill staff met with U.S. Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-8th-Md.) recently in Washington, D.C.
Rep. Van Hollen is running for Sen. Barbara Mikulski’s U.S. Senate seat, who is retiring after 30 years. He recently won the Maryland state primary to be the Democratic nominee in the Senate race.
SMACNA members may recognize SMACNA contractor Stromberg Metal Works’ office as the backdrop for Rep. Van Hollen’s main campaign commercial, as they taped his television spot in Stromberg’s Beltsville, Md., shop.
A respected legislator with expertise in foreign affairs and a strong knowledge of the sheet metal and HVAC industry, Rep. Van Hollen discussed maintaining the country’s infrastructure, the presidential elections, and the budget.
