Political career

Della was first elected to the Baltimore City Council. In 1982, he won his seat in the Maryland Senate. He sat on the Finance Committee and the Executive Nominations Committee.

In January 2009, he introduced a bill (SB 233) intended to ban "Beer Pong", and would have "outlawed any games that award drinks as prizes in city taverns". Della withdrew the bill eve of its first committee hearing, stating ""We're getting inundated with so many e-mails that I don't have the time to fool with it... ...I just hope that if people continue doing it, they do it in a way that there's not excessive drinking and disrespect for the surrounding neighborhoods."

Della was defeated for reelection in the 2010 Democratic primary by Bill Ferguson.
