Flowers for Maryland

I’m Berney Flowers, proudly calling Howard County my home for fifteen years. I’ve dedicated myself to balancing my roles as a senior civil servant and a committed community leader.

A bit about me: I grew up in a working-class family, breaking the mold to become a college graduate and later earning a Master’s in Public Administration. I proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for nearly 21 years, including during the 9/11 Pentagon attack, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. My service continued in various roles under both Republican and Democrat administrations. Beyond work, I’m passionate about mentoring first-generation college men, and cherishing moments with my family.

Why I’m Running

As a military officer and dedicated civil servant, I’ve upheld a long-standing tradition of political neutrality, but I can no longer remain silent in good conscience. Our country is headed in the wrong direction, with cities in disrepair, economic volatility, and uncertainty for hardworking Marylander’s left behind. District 3 has been under the representation of an incumbent who doesn’t reside in it, neglecting pressing issues like crumbling infrastructure, fiscal accountability, and an unfair tax system. As your next congressman, I intend to be the voice for those who feel politically adrift, advocating for efficient government and business-oriented solutions. It’s time to bring about positive change for our community, and to lay out a new vision for Maryland’s third congressional district.
