Janet Greenip (born (1947-08-10)August 10, 1947, in Cincinnati, Ohio[1]) was a Republican State Senator from Crofton, Maryland, representing District 33 from 2003 through 2009.

Education[edit]

Greenip received her B.S. in education in 1969 from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.[1]

Career[edit]

After college, Greenip had a career as a math teacher and statistician. In 1994, she ran for the Maryland House of Delegates and won a seat in District 33, along with fellow Republican, Robert C. Baldwin, and Democrat, Marsha G. Perry. One of the seats that was vacated was that of former Delegate John G. Gary, who was elected as the County Executive of Anne Arundel County. Greenip placed the House Ways and Means committee.

When incumbent Maryland State Senator Bob Neall switched parties from the GOP to the Democratic party, Janet Greenip ran against and defeated him, even though he had previously been the Anne Arundel County Executive from 1990-1994.

Greenip has been a long-term active member of the Republican Party. She was President of the Maryland Federation of Republican Women from 1990-92. She is a current member of the Greater Crofton Republican Women, the Elephant Club, the Severna Park Republican Women, the Republican Women of Anne Arundel County, the Republican Professional Women and the West County Republican Club.

Greenip serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Crofton Civic Association (district director; member, rules committee). She was a member of the Board of Directors for Helping Hand, Inc. from 1988 until 1991. Greenip was selected as Woman of the Year by the Republican Women of Anne Arundel County in 1990 and received as an award from Helping Hand, Inc., in 1991. Finally, she was selected as Hero of the Taxpayer by the Maryland Taxpayers Association in 2001.
