Joseph T. Ferraracci was appointed to the position of State Senator for District 8, which covers portions of Baltimore County and Baltimore City, by former Maryland Governor Parris Glendening when John R. Schneider died. Ferraracci was the third in a series of quick successions to the position. Earlier in 2002, Thomas L. Bromwell resigned the same seat to accept a position with the Maryland Injured Workers Insurance Fund. Schneider was appointed as his replacement, who as mentioned previously, died less than 2 months after his appointment. Ferraracci was appointed to serve out the remainder of the term. He did not seek election in the next Democratic primary. Eventually, Katherine Klausmeier won the primary and general election in 2002 and was sworn in in 2003.
