Why should the voters elect you?

"As a retired police officer who was born, raised in and served three quarters of my law enforcement career in the district I would represent if elected, I am keenly aware of the public safety and educational needs of District 12A. Local law enforcement needs the financial support to continue to take aggressive action against career criminals and juvenile offenders involved in felonious criminal activity. As the father of three children, I understand the importance of providing computer and Internet access in a safe and crime-free school learning environment. As your delegate, I will represent you."

Why should the voters elect you?

"My record discloses solid command, staff and management experience both at sea and ashore over a period of over 30 years. The home I now occupy has been my legal residence for 65 years, and I am passionately determined to see that redistricting does not disenfranchise all of Catonsville. I am adamantly opposed to the irresponsible practices of Maryland's government that place more and more dollars in the hands of bureaucrats from the pockets of working Americans. Democrats are responsible for the deplorable and inequitable condition of education in this state. It is time that proven policy failures be replaced."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"I am a Vietnam veteran and native of Catonsville. My widowed mother owned and operated the Stier E. Korrell Realty here for over 40 years."
