Edward J. Kasemeyer (born July 18, 1945) is an American politician from Maryland and a member of the Democratic Party. He is currently serving in his 5th term in the Maryland State Senate, representing Maryland's District 12 in Baltimore and Howard Counties.

Background[edit]

Born in Baltimore, Maryland on July 18, 1945, Kasemeyer attended Western Maryland College. He has been active with the Howard County Association of Retarded Citizens, the Howard County Chamber of Commerce, and the Howard County General Hospital Advisory Board, as well as in the Democratic Party.

In the legislature[edit]

Kasemeyer first served in the Senate as a representative of the 14th district from January 1987 to January 1991, after a single term in the Maryland House of Delegates (elected 1982; served January 1983 to January 1987). Running for re-election to the Senate in 1990, he narrowly lost to Republican Christopher J. McCabe.[1] After redistricting changed the district boundaries, he was elected again to the Senate in 1994, this time from the 12th district. He has since been re-elected four times. Kasemeyer is currently serving as the Chair of the Budget and Taxation Committee.
