Meet Jill P. Carter!

Jill P. Carter (born June 18) is a former American politician who represented Maryland's 41st, Legislative District of Baltimore City in Maryland's House of Delegates.

She was elected to the Maryland Legislature in 2002 and took office in January 2003.

Legislative Career

Ms. Carter was the third African-American female attorney elected to the Maryland Legislature. During her first term from 2003-2006, she was the only African-American female attorney serving in the Maryland House of Delegates.

She was assigned to the House Judiciary Committee where she served as Chair of the Estates and Trusts Subcommittee, the Legislative Black caucus of Maryland, and the Women Legislators of Maryland. Ms. Carter voted against legalizing slot machines in Maryland in 2005, and prior to her re-election in 2006, she also became a vocal critic of then mayor (and later Governor) Martin O'Malley's ufailed policing policies."

Ms. Carter's strong stance regarding the so-labeled, zero-tolerance arrest strategy, failed to cause significant reduction in a soaring crime rate in Baltimore City. Rather, it pressured police officers to make tens of thousands of arrests, that did not produce criminal charges.
