Maryland's House Speaker Michael Busch has sworn in David Fraser-Hidalgo to the state's House of Delegates. Fraser-Hidalgo will represent District 15 in Montgomery County.
Maryland's Gov. Martin O'Malley appointed Fraser-Hidalgo to replace Brian Feldman, who was appointed to the state Senate last month. Feldman replaces Sen. Robert Garagiola who recently retired.
Fraser-Hidalgo is a 44-year-old Democrat, and he currently works as area sales director for Regus, a company that provides support for small and midsize businesses.
The new delegate was previously a Montgomery County police officer before moving to the private sector. He was also vice president of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for Montgomery County and vice president of Boyds Civic Association.
