Election Results

Dear Friends:

I want to let everyone know that I was not successful in my re-election campaign. I came in third place and the top two candidates (Diana Fennell and Julian Ivey) were nominated as the Democratic candidates for Delegate for District 47A.  Since no Republicans are running for Delegate they will be your new delegates starting in January 2019.

Thank you for all the support you’ve given me throughout this campaign and during my term as your Delegate. It has been my great pleasure having District 47A as my community, getting to know so many people throughout, listening to your concerns, helping you solve problems locally, and representing you in Annapolis.

I am sure Diana Fennell, Julian Ivey, and Malcolm Augustine will do a good job as your state legislators.  We agree on 95% of the issues. I hope you will all continue to be involved and keep them informed about your concerns.

I will continue to be your state delegate through 2018.  If you have any concerns or issues you want me to know about, please let me know.

As disappointing as this loss is, it is one small loss in the midst of enormous struggles. Right now, facing the damage wrought daily by the administration in Washington and all its enablers, we have our work cut out for us. My wife and I will take time out to join with friends and family and celebrate the marriage of our daughter.

But then I plan on spending my time over the next 5 months focusing on the fall elections  and look forward to working together in those efforts.
