Thank you for such
a successful campaign!
Thank you to my supporters and volunteers for your hard work during my campaign.
"I believe we have a wonderful County. It is my intention to do all that I can to preserve, protect and improve our quality of life."
Welcome and thank you for visiting our Campaign website. This website will be a primary source of information about my campaign for St. Mary’s County Commissioner.
I am running in District 1, which covers the southern part of the County and includes Piney Point and Ridge. In our County, there are four Commissioner Districts. All the voters in the County vote for Commissioners in all four districts. The top vote getter from each district is then elected. In addition, the voters vote for a Commissioner President. The Commissioner President is the fifth Commissioner.
I am running for Commissioner because I believe the years of backroom deals have not served our communities well. The $5.3 million purchase of the property outside of Leonardtown is a perfect example of bad government. There were two appraisals of the property – one for $3.6 million and one for $4.3 million. The meeting on this land deal was held on Christmas Eve. Government is supposed to be transparent and open to the public. When government is run behind closed doors, bad decisions are made and we, the people, suffer.
The money our County residents pay in taxes belongs to them, the residents – not the politicians. As such, our elected leaders must not spend more than we have. They must look for efficiencies and opportunities to reduce spending. It has been long understood that lower taxes spur the economy and create jobs.
I am running for St. Mary’s County Commissioner because I believe we have a wonderful County and we can do better. With your support, I will be your advocate for fiscally responsible, transparent and accountable government.
With best regards,
St. Mary’s County Commissioner Candidate
